ICCRC is the national regulatory body that oversees regulated Canadian immigration professionals. The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and the Citizenship Act require anyone providing Canadian immigration or citizenship advice or representation for a fee or other consideration to be a member in good standing of ICCRC. Exceptions are members in good standing of provincial or territorial law societies or the Chambre des notaires du Québec.
ICCRC has a federal mandate to regulate individuals who provide Canadian immigration, citizenship, and international student advising services. Individuals who reside outside Canada and provide regulated immigration services, or whose principal location of Canadian immigration services is outside Canada, are also subject to ICCRC regulation.
