Useful for practitioners and students, as well as immigration or refugee decision-makers, journalists, or researchers who must consult primary immigration law on a frequent basis, the Immigration Practitioner's Handbook is designed as a practical tool and should serve as a reference book for students enrolled in immigration consulting courses throughout Canada. It is also designed to assist immigration consultants in preparing for the Professional Standards Exam, which all current consultants must pass to become a member of the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants (CSIC).

  • IRPA Summaries – Coherent and accessible overviews of the legislative provisions concerning federal skilled workers, entrepreneurs, self-employed persons and live-in caregivers useful for those new to the topic or as a refresher.
