MONTREAL, Feb. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - Vanier College and Cégep de
Saint-Laurent will each be offering a new Attestation d'études
collégiales (A.E.C) program in Immigration Consulting starting April
The introduction of this program is timely given the new regulation of
the Minister of Immigration and Cultural Communities (M.I.C.C.), which
came into effect on November 4, 2010.
This requires all those wishing to continue to practice as immigration
consultants under the Minister of Immigration and Cultural Communities,
to obtain official recognition and to register with the Quebec Register
of Immigration Consultants (Registre québécois des consultants en
immigration). To do so, immigration consultants must present proof of
membership in the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants
Within this context, Vanier College and Cégep de Saint-Laurent jointly
developed a 375-hour AEC program in line with the pedagogical standards
and objectives stated by the C.S.I.C. Both institutions have recently
received official accreditation from C.S.I.C.
Upon completion of the Immigration Consulting Program, students will be
fully prepared to write the Professional Standards Test administered by
C.S.I.C. Once successful, applicants will receive official designation
as a Canadian Consultant in Immigration (C.C.A.I).
Vanier College and Cégep de Saint-Laurent are the sole accredited
institutions to offer this program east of Ontario, and Vanier College
is the only one to offer instruction in the English-language in the
