Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants

The Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants (CSIC) was an independent, not-for-profit, self-regulatory body for immigration consultants. It was incorporated on 8 October 2003 and became law from 1 April 2004. All practising immigration consultants in Canada prior to June 30, 2011, had to be members in good standing with the CSIC, a Canadian law society, or the Chambre des Notaires du Qu├ębec in order to participate in new matters before Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the Immigration and Refugee Board and the Canadian Border Services Agency.

CSIC lost their mandate to Regulate Immigration Consultants when The Minister of Immigration, Jason Kenney, using the powers delegated to him by Bill C-35, named a new Regulator effective June 30, 2011. Members of CSIC in good standing as of June 30, 2011, were automatically Members of the new Regulator, ICCRC.

'As of June 30, 2011 the Government of Canada does not recognize CSIC as the regulator for Immigration Consultants.'

CSIC had in place, until June 30, 2011 the following:

  • The CSIC required members to adhere to a Code of Conduct.
  • The CSIC used to require and provided Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for the Membership.
  • The CSIC used to investigate complaints about its members prior to June 30, 2011.

Famous quotes containing the words immigration, society and/or canadian:

    I was interested to see how a pioneer lived on this side of the country. His life is in some respects more adventurous than that of his brother in the West; for he contends with winter as well as the wilderness, and there is a greater interval of time at least between him and the army which is to follow. Here immigration is a tide which may ebb when it has swept away the pines; there it is not a tide, but an inundation, and roads and other improvements come steadily rushing after.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Now different races and nationalities cherish different ideals of society that stink in each other’s nostrils with an offensiveness beyond the power of any but the most monstrous private deed.
    Rebecca West (1892–1983)

    We’re definite in Nova Scotia—’bout things like ships ... and fish, the best in the world.
