RCIC Digest

RCIC DigestRCIC Digest targets Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants and other licensed practitioners. Since I deliver courses and mentorship sessions for my colleagues, I receive many interesting questions from them. Consequently, I decided to dedicate a section of this website to these questions.

Who is an RCIC?

An RCIC is a College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants (CICC) member. RCICs may offer immigration advice and represent people to the immigration authorities. I have another article that explains the scope of practice for a typical RCIC.

Why RCIC Digest?

This website section, RCIC Digest, mainly addresses licensed RCICs and other licensed practitioners. Of course, if you are not an RCIC, an immigration lawyer, or a paralegal, you may still read the content of this section and benefit from it.

Mentorship sessions for RCICs

I do not limit my services to RCIC Digest. You may book mentorship sessions with me if you are an RCIC or another licensed practitioner. A typical session covers the following:

  • Answering your questions about a specific case
  • Discussing an immigration process or policy
  • Answering questions about the issues applicants could face and how to resolve them

Regardless of mentorship sessions, please continue reading RCIC Digest and suggesting topics to me.
