According to Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) s.91(1), anyone who provides immigration or citizenship advice for a fee or other consideration must be a member in good standing of ICCRC, a Canadian law society, or the Chambre des notaires du Québec.

As an RCIC, we are committed to provide high standard professional service and obey the strict code of ethics. We are trained properly and passed the professionally designed exam. As a member in good standing of ICCRC, we need to complete the continuing professional development each year. In addition, if we have breached any code of ethics or have done anything that is inconsistent with the professional standards, the client may file a complaint through the ICCRC.
