Helping Canadians get back to work.


CDI College’s Immigration Consultant program prepares students to pursue a career as a Canadian immigration practitioner, a legal profession in high demand across Canada.

The objective of the program is to give the student training in all mandatory areas of immigration consulting practice. Both the theoretical knowledge and the practical skills are taught, perfected and evaluated.

In completing the program, students are provided a foundation allowing them to begin a successful career working in a legal firm as well as to start their own immigration consulting practice.

This program is accredited by the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) which is Canada’s governing body for regulating this profession.

The successful graduate will officially have met the necessary academic requirements to apply for and write the ICCRC’s entry-to-practice Full Skills Exam (FSE). After successfully passing the FSE, graduates will be able to apply for ICCRC membership and become Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) with a license to practice anywhere in Canada.
