Immigration: Laws, Policies and Procedures

UBC Certificate Program

On May 1, 2019, Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) announced important changes coming to education programming for prospective immigration consultants. Due to these changes, July 2020 will be the last UBC Certificate in Immigration: Laws, Policies and Procedures (CILPP) program. We will not be able to accept new students after July 31, 2020.

Canada is a country built and enriched by immigrants, and immigration continues to be an important facet of Canadian culture. The UBC Certificate in Immigration: Laws, Policies and Procedures (CILPP) prepares you to deliver excellent service and sound advice on immigration issues.

By the end of this program, you can expect to have gained the practical, theoretical and ethical understanding required to write the Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant Entry-to-Practice Exam (RCIC EPE), one of the requirements to become a RCIC and to start and operate a professional immigration consulting business.

  • The last program start date is:

    • July 2020: The program is part-time and 100% online, and takes nine months to complete taking one course at a time. All courses must be completed by May 2021.
  • Students complete seven courses to earn a certificate.

The UBC Certificate in Immigration: Laws, Policies and Procedures (CILPP) program is accredited by the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC), as well as the Law Society of British Columbia (LSBC) for Continuing Professional Development hours.

The program is the first step toward becoming a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC), and prepares students for the RCIC Entry-to-Practice Exam (RCIC EPE) which is required to become an RCIC. UBC CILPP program graduates have a very high passing rate on the national regulatory exam.
