The College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants advises as follows:

As of July 1, 2023, all Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) will be required to hold a RCIC-IRB class of licence to represent clients before the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB). To obtain this class of licence, RCICs must complete the appropriateĀ specialization program pathway.

  • Admissibility hearings
  • Detention reviews
  • Residency obligation appeals
