On March 8, 2022, Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), appointed five public interest directors to the College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants (CICC). These directors have been appointed for a 2-year term, starting from March 7, 2022. The appointment of directors will increase the government’s oversight of the consultant profession, strengthen the integrity of the consulting industry, and will help to fight fraud in Canada’s immigration system. According to the Immigration Minister, “the new board of directors will help make sure that prospective newcomers have access to quality immigration advice and representation, and make sure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect.”
