Becoming a RISIA

Federal law requires that immigration practitioners, in Canada or abroad, who provide Canadian immigration services for a fee, must be registered with the ICCRC and accredited as a Regulated International Student Immigration Advisor (RISIA) or a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC). Exceptions are members in good standing of provincial or territorial law societies 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.
