Starting again : improving government oversight of immigration consultants / Borys Wrzesnewskyj, chair.: XC64-1/1-421-11E-PDF

"In order to protect prospective applicants and ensure the integrity of Canada’s immigration system, the federal government has established a regulatory framework governing immigration and citizenship consultants, described in the background section of this report. The issues brought to the Committee’s attention encompass the current lack of protection of the public in the regulatory framework, outlined in part one of this report. Part two highlights how the current framework does not provide adequate oversight, whereas parts three and four describe respectively the limitations on settlement organizations that provide an alternative to immigration and citizenship consultants and paralegals, as well as the unregulated representatives that are outside of the regulatory framework"--Intro., p. 3.
