                 -  Launch a national toll-free help/referral line
                 -  Unveil a cutting edge new advertising campaign
                 -  Provide recommendations to Government on how to address
                    non-accredited immigration representatives
                    (known as ghost agents)
                 -  Report on the progress CSIC has made since its inception.

    BACKGROUND:  Canada's current legal and administrative framework for
                 immigration consultants fails to address ghost agents. These
                 agents give a bad name to legitimate immigration
                 consultants, preying on consumers by offering them
                 sub-standard services.
