Moreover, prospective appointees who are Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) would be required to resign from Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC). Of note, a “leave of absence” from the Regulatory Council does not meet IRCC’s requirement in the matter.

Random Selection Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Some advertisements state that random selection may be used to identify which applicants will be assessed during the appointment process. What is random selection?

Random selection is a strategy that is sometimes used to manage applicant volume. It identifies a sub-sample of applicants by applying the element of chance at some point during the appointment process, using criteria identified by the hiring organization.

2. How is this sub-sample of applicants determined?

To determine the sub-sample of applicants, the hiring organization identifies the following:
- criteria that candidates must meet; and
- the number of candidates to be selected.

With the assistance of an electronic system that contains information on all applicants, candidates who meet these criteria are identified and the sub-sample is randomly selected from that group. The Public Service Resourcing System - the electronic system used to advertise job opportunities within the Public Service of Canada, and receive and select applications - performs the random selection function.


Preference will be given to veterans first and then to Canadian citizens and permanent residents, with the exception of a job located in Nunavut, where Nunavut Inuit will be appointed first.

Information on the preference to veterans

We thank all those who apply. Only those selected for further consideration will be contacted.
