I have been an immigration consultant for 12 years, and have participated actively in the quest for strengthening our immigration consulting profession.
I believe that we all need to make concerted efforts to reach the highest level of professionalism, respect and recognition for our profession. And, harnessing the diverse skills of CAPIC members accumulated in a variety of environments could help us propel towards this goal, thus benefiting the Association, our profession as well as ourselves individually.
I have been an active member of CAPIC since its inception:
As such I have been participating in numerous initiatives and projects to make the profession stronger, both with the Association and the Regulator.
I was also one of the 6 Initial Directors helping to set up the regulator of our industry, the ‘Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council’ (ICCRC). During my term from March, 2011 till the First General Meeting of the Council, I served as:
During this time, I was responsible for some special assignments including Chair Pro-Tem of the Governance & Nominating Committee for first Elections to the Board of Directors in 2012. Following my tenure on the ICCRC Board, I continued as a member of one of the Standing committees of the Council.
I graduated from the Immigration Practitioner Post-Diploma program with High Honors at Seneca College, Toronto in 2003, and hold a MBA in Marketing. Before starting my career as a proud RCIC, I had a multi-disciplinary career in marketing, financial services and advertising.
If elected as a CAPIC Director, I wish continue the implementation of CAPIC Strategic Plan, which will benefit the entire industry and each fellow CAPIC member. Another important initiative that I believe is in best interest of our profession and fully support is the lobbying efforts towards Self-Regulatory Federal Statute, including measures against double regulation.
