Becoming an RISIA

ICCRC’s federal mandate stems from the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and the Citizenship Act which 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 a law society in Canada or the Chambre des notaires du Québec.

International Student Advisors employed in the Education Sector are required to write and pass an entry-to-practice exam (EPE) prior to being accepted for registration by the Council.

  1. Please review the Registration Guide containing detailed information on writing the EPE and becoming a RISIA.

    ICCRC is currently reviewing and restructuring its application process and website.  We anticipate having the new system in place for applications for the November 2019 Entry-to-Practice Exam starting August 26th.  We ask that you return to this website at that time to begin your application to write the Entry-to-Practice Exam.

    Please email if you have any questions or need additional information.  Thank you.
