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 ICCRC Full Skills exam, become a Regulated Immigration Consultant (RCIC) and to start and operate a professional immigration consulting business.

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 immigration consultant in Canada, and prepares students for the ICCRC national regulatory exam (RCIC EPE) which is required to become a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC). UBC CILPP program graduates have a very high passing rate on the national regulatory exam.
