Becoming a 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.
