Ashton’s Quebec Immigration Consultant Exam Prep course is offered to prepare members in good standing of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) to take the exam necessary for practicing immigration in Quebec. The exam is only offered in French and must be completed within a year of applying for recognition within Quebec.
The requirements for being a practicing immigration consultant in Quebec are different than in other parts of Canada. Immigration consultants in Quebec must be registered with the ICCRC, recognized by the Ministère of MIFI, and registered on the Registre québécois des consultants en immigration. Passing the Quebec immigration consultant exam and being fluent in the French language are two major requirements for becoming recognized by the ministère. After an immigration consultant is recognized by the ministère, they are added to the Registre québécois des consultants en immigration and they can then legally practice as a Quebec immigration consultant.
The Quebec Immigration Consultant exam is held four times a year, once every three months. You can find the upcoming exam dates and registration deadlines from the Ministère sur les règles québécoises en matière d’immigration.
Quebec is a unique province In Canada, as it is the only one where French is the predominant language. The Quebec independence movement has played a large part in the province’s politics, and it is part of the reason why Quebec’s laws and regulations differ so vastly from the rest of Canada. By understanding the common values of Quebec, students will have a better idea of what it is like to live and work in Quebec and thus be better prepared to take on the role of a Quebec immigration consultant.
