Regular - General Membership
U.C.I.C.A. Membership is for only those licensed Canadian Immigration Consultants whose top priority is to protect the Public interest and maintain highest professional practice standard. They also believe in true democracy, transparency, accountability and most importantly maintain the true spirit of honest character in their regular practice.
All U.C.I.C.A. members are screened very carefully before becoming a member. This screening is based on their current and past affiliations with other organizations and their interaction with clients and other fellow members and through background check.
ICCRC is a private not-for-profit corporation with powers as a regulatory body vested via ministerial powers under section 91 of IRPA. Previously the minister had designated this regulatory status to CSIC. ICCRC’s mandate is to protect the public interest and not the membership. ICCRC is performing this role via its bylaws and regulations.
There are several other independent groups of members and one association which acts as a lobbyist and appears to be representing the membership as well.
What is the reality? We don’t need to get into that; the truth is wide open.
At current time there are around 4000 ICCRC members who are licensed Immigration consultants (RCIC). A majority of the membership is not properly represented and educated about their rights and believe that it’s time to get united via an association which can truly represent and watch out for the best interest of the membership only, and will have following characteristics:
We can assure you that the only thing we need at this time, to go for it, is courage and will, true spirit, and to know we have all that is required to put this in business and reality and the time is NOW.
We are not asking for any fee, or funding, or any financial benefit from membership now or ever.
We are all volunteers and have no intention to put any financial burden on members’ shoulders.
Soon we will be calling for a general membership web meeting, and all members from around the word will be invited to join for free and share their thoughts.
Let the year 2017 be a new year to protect and work for our profession and practice. Nothing is automatic; we have to work for it.
