New Book Details History of Profession from Confederation On
TORONTO, Oct. 11, 2017 /CNW/ - With its 30 years roots, CAPIC, the Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants of Canada, today announced that it would be publishing a book tiled "The History of Canadian Immigration Consulting." The book will serve as a reference work for all immigration industry stakeholders, detailing the milestones, challenges, and achievements of the profession as it grew to meet changes in immigration throughout Canada's history.
Topics will include:
- Canadian immigration legislation
- The Mangat decision
- The establishment of the ICCRC
- CAPIC's founding principles
Over 4,000 Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) handle thousands of immigration applications every year. Most RCICs have never had a complaint against them and have done excellent and ethical work for their clients. Today, however, their profession once again faces a major challenge, as its self-regulatory framework was recently reviewed by the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration.
"The history of Canadian immigration consulting is an important story to tell, especially in light of the more recent challenges facing both RCICs and the industry. Without the development of the initial professional associations, whose innovative programs would eventually lead to the formation of CAPIC, the industry would sorely lack the professionalism and integrity that immigration consultants bring to Canadian immigration. The immigration consulting profession should become self-regulated under federal statue to enhance consumer protection and drastically reduce unauthorized practitioners who prey on the public." – Donald Igbokwe, president of CAPIC.
"The Immigration Consulting profession is a noble profession. RCICs assist thousands of immigrants and those seeking Canadian citizenship each year. It has existed for centuries in a variety of forms, and it is important to provide the public with a reference book to better understand how it has evolved." – Dory Jade, CEO of CAPIC.
The book will be launched on October 11 as a limited first edition, and will be available as on eBook on Amazon.ca for CAD $12.99.
