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

On Thursday, July 29th, 2021, Ashton College is excited to host another free webinar to support the continuing professional development of legal professionals across the country. Our upcoming CPD event will have something interesting for everyone who attends. Our expert panel will reflect on the latest updates and circumstances affecting temporary foreign workers, international mobility workers and labour market impact assessments. The conversation will directly cover the most recent updates to the Ontario Provincial Nominee Program, along with the new national standards and quality assurance program for RCICs. There will also be a breakdown of language proficiency exams and how they relate to Canadian language benchmarks.

The online event is now open for registration and there is no cost to attend this CPD webinar. Register now and secure your spot for this exciting learning opportunity.

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.
