New College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants officially opens
November 24, 2021—Ottawa, Ontario—Canada is one of the top destinations in the world, with millions of people from across the globe hoping to come here every year to settle, visit or work. To navigate the immigration system, many people turn to consultants or other services for help. While nearly all operate honestly, unscrupulous actors can exploit the system and take advantage of people. That’s why the Government of Canada is strengthening the regulation of immigration consultants to protect those who wish to come here.
Yesterday, the Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, marked the official opening of the College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants. The College is now the official regulator of immigration and citizenship consultants across the country. All paid consultants must be licensed by the College to work with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
The College regulates immigration and citizenship consultants under the College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants Act. It has new powers and tools to investigate professional misconduct and to discipline consultants. The College can also protect the public from unlicensed consultants by
entering a consultant’s premises to gather information for an investigation
compelling witnesses to appear and testify before its Discipline Committee
requesting court injunctions to address unlicensed actors providing immigration or citizenship advice without authorization
New, higher standards for consultants have also been introduced. Going forward, completing the new competency-based graduate diploma program will be the only way for aspiring consultants, who must already hold a bachelor’s degree, to enter the profession. College licensees must also complete annual continuing professional development requirements and an annual practice assessment.
The new College is a key part of the government’s efforts to fight fraud in Canada’s immigration system. It builds on significant action over the past few years, including an investment of $50 million to fight fraud and new educational tools to help applicants identify fraudulent activity. It also fulfills a mandate commitment to strengthen oversight, uphold the integrity of Canada’s immigration system and protect all those who wish to come here.
“We have an obligation to protect those who wish to come to our country—and we’re fulfilling it. The new College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants will ensure that aspiring Canadians get the professional and honest advice they deserve, and strengthen our immigration system so it can continue building the Canada of the future.”
–The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship
“It is the beginning of a new era in the regulation of the immigration consulting profession. We thank the Government of Canada for bringing in the College Act and helping us move forward to this historic day.”
–John Murray, President and CEO, College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants

There is no better feeling than saving lives... Studying medicine has been one of the most popular choices of bright and ambitious students. Let’s see what the advantages of studying Medicine are.
1. Promising career
We hardly see any unemployed doctor, don’t we?
2. Helping people
If you are a people person studying medicine is the right choice. Doctors have no better joy than the one they feel when a sick person recovers.
3. Team work
Medicine nowadays is based on team work. Not only does a doctor cooperate with nurses and other doctors on daily bases, but he is also a mentor figure and a role model for his students
4. Respect in Society
Whether we want to admit it or not, doctors are always on the top of the social scale. Whether you go to the theatre or to the cinema you should know that you will be noticed. This also represents a great responsibility because it is not often that a doctor is also a moral authority, especially in smaller places.
