The College of Immigration introduced a new Code of Professional Conduct
On June 10, 2022, the College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants (CICC) introduced a new Code of Professional Conduct. The Code of Professional Conduct, which is now in force, was adopted by the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) upon signature.

The RCIC Code of Professional Ethics and the RISIA Code of Ethics have been replaced by the new Code. The updated guidelines make it clear that where a College By-law or Regulation contradicts the Code, the Code prevails.
