CPD – Something for Everybody: TFWP, IMWP, Ontario PNP, Competencies, and Language Proficiency for Immigration

On Thursday, July 29th, 2021, Ashton College hosted CPD webinar entitled “Something for Everybody: TFWP, IMWP, Ontario PNP, Competencies, and Language Proficiency for Immigration”, which included something interesting for everyone who attended. Our expert panel reflected on the latest updates and circumstances affecting temporary foreign workers, international mobility workers and labour market impact assessments. The conversation covered the most recent updates to the Ontario Provincial Nominee Program, along with the new national standards and quality assurance program for RCICs. A breakdown of language proficiency exams and how they relate to Canadian language benchmarks were also discussed. This webinar is an excellent learning opportunity to hear from leaders in the field of immigration law. 

This event is approved by ICCRC for 4 CPD hours. To comply with the annual requirement, an RCIC must complete 16 CPD hours. How can you log your CPD hours? Check out page three of this recent ICCRC bulletin for complete instructions on how to obtain your CPD hours with ICCRC through their brand new Continuing Competence Portal.
