Immigration Practitioner Centre

Immigration Practitioner Centre (IPC)


For more than 10 years, Ashton College has taken a leadership role in developing students into elite immigration consultants through the Immigration Consultant Diploma (IMCD) and other immigration-focused programs.

Our graduates advance in their careers and prove the benefits of their education as they help others achieve dreams of coming to Canada. You will find these professionals at the top of their industry as they continue to engage and learn how to make the process of immigrating smoother and easier for their future clients. Immigration to Canada is at a high point and is maintaining that growth, putting Ashton’s industry-leading programs in high demand. In fact, the IMCD program is one of the most well-regarded immigration practitioner programs in the country. If you want to be part of the growing, thriving immigration industry or want to advance your existing skills, we can help you get there. Immigration practitioner centre programs are ideal for those who want to break into the industry as well as those who are already involved in the process as: immigration consultants, immigration lawyers, paralegals, legal assistants and others.
