加拿大移民顾问监管委员会,ICCRC,全称Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council,是加拿大政府于2011年成立的留学移民服务行业的监管机构。

 

ICCRC, which stands for the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council, is the national regulatory body designated by the government of Canada in July 2011 to regulate Canadian immigration, citizenship and international student advising services.

 

根据《加拿大移民及难民保护法》第91条,除律师及持牌移民顾问以外,任何人不得向其他人提供有偿移民咨询服务,或代为准备及递交任何移民相关申请。

 

As per s.91 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, no person shall knowingly, directly, or indirectly, represent or advise on immigration matters for a fee unless they are a lawyer who is a member in good standing of a law society of a province or a member of the ICCRC.

 

 截至2016年6月30日,ICCRC共有3711名有效会员,其中包括:

          1)Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs),以及

          2)Regulated International Student Immigration Advisors (RISIAs)

 

On June 30, 2016, ICCRC has 3711 active members, including:

1) Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs), and

2) Regulated International Student Immigration Advisors (RISIAs)

 

后者(RISIAs)多受雇于各类高中、院校及大学,并主要为国籍学生提供咨询及向导服务。前者(RCICs),也就是我们最常听到的”持牌移民顾问“。

 

The latter (RISIAs) are mostly employed by educational institutions including secondary schools, colleges and universities. Their work mainly focuses on advising international students at their schools. The former (RCICs) refers to those who are more commonly known as the "licensed consultants".

 

ICCRC在各方面都对其会员保持着严格的监管,包括:

          1)与客户签署合同时,合同中必须包含的条款(例:如何向ICCRC投诉及ICCRC的联系信息)

          2)对客户所有的信息必须严格保密

          3)如何处理收取的费用(例:如收取定金,先先存入客户信托账户,不得直接存入个人账户)

          4)如何有效并妥善的保管客户档案中相关的文件(例:至少要保存6年),等等

 

ICCRC closely monitors its members on their immigration practices, including:

1) Clauses the RCIC must include in every retainer agreement (e.g., method of complaint and ICCRC's contact information)

2) Confidentiality requirement with regard to client information

3) How to handle money received from client (e.g., must deposit into client trust account if unearned money, not the general business account)

4) Client file management requirement (e.g., all client files must be kept for a minimum of 6 years), etc.

 

ICCRC每年会进行1-2次审计,所有会员都必须按要求汇报情况及提供相应文件。

 

ICCRC also conducts an annual audit during which all members will be required to report on their practices and provide all required documents accordingly.

 

除了最初的会员资格考试外,ICCRC要求其会员每年接受至少16个小时的持续教育。每个会员可根据自己专业领域的不同去选择不同主题的讲座。

 

Other than passing the Full Skills Exam to be eligible for membership registration, ICCRC requires its members to participate in at least 16 hours of continuing professional development (CPD) education each year. Members can choose different topics based on their areas of practice.
