TORONTO, May 10, 2019 /CNW/ - The Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants (CAPIC) will be hosting a distinguished international education event today in Toronto.
The annual Education Partner Symposium will convene immigration and citizenship consultants, senior government officials, and Designated Learning Institutions from CAPIC's Education Partner Program for talks on diversification, marketing and recruiting, and the educator/agent relationship. Consultants and educators will also have the chance to meet one-on-one to strike potential business partnerships.
"CAPIC has access to an extensive global network of immigration professionals, learning institutions, and students. By coming together each year, we're able to effect substantial change in the ethical recruitment of international students," said Dory Jade, CAPIC's Chief Executive Officer.
CAPIC represents and advocates for immigration and citizenship consultants while reinforcing the industry codes of conduct established by the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) to protect consumers. Consultants are put through extensive training and testing in order to practise and must be insured. Additionally, they work under both the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and Citizenship Act.
CAPIC's newly unveiled Education Partner Program (EPP) strengthens connections between Designated Learning Institutions, students, and immigration and citizenship consultants, making it easier for international students to find the right school under ethical, professional guidance and increasing the diversity of Canadian schools.
Representing over 2500 immigration and citizenship consultants, the Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants (CAPIC) leads, connects, protects, and develops the profession, serving the best interests of its members.
