It is now official. I am a member of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC). This means that, effective immediately, I am fully licensed (and regulated), and am able to practice as an Immigration Consultant. I was advised by the Council by e-mail at 4:12 p.m. on Day Zero: June 17, 2016. It is both the end of a year-long journey through the nine-course qualification procedure, through the afternoon-long final exam, and the start of a new line of business for me. I have completed the paperwork and application process to set up the new business, which even now has its first client.
