Our grads will get great jobs.  LAPEC career development support 


Jobs in this NOC level are in high demand and successful candidates are selected to be posted on government positions in Canada, as well as at visa offices around the world.  If your circumstances demand that you be located outside Canada and still be considered a Canadian resident, this is the career you need, with a secured future and great benefits.


Consider there are thousands of applicants who are applying for the following jobs, and they have a graduate degree with no other education or experience related to the job's skill set.

Now consider applicants who have a graduate degree or required minimal education credentials plus a diploma in Citizenship and Immigration Case Processing and Enforcement Services from L.A.P.E.C. They will stand above the crowd and may have priority when short-listed, or a better opportunity to get selected for the job.

Citizenship–Immigration and Enforcement Officers:


The citizenship and immigration officer would be responsible for determining the eligibility of individuals from foreign countries to reside or travel in a host country. For example, as a Canadian citizenship and immigration officer, you would be responsible for screening visitors in various temp visa categories as well as a permanent residency in Canada.

In order to determine a potential immigrant or visitor’s eligibility, they would examine applications for immigration, citizenship and visas, and conduct interviews with the applicants. They would be ultimately trying to determine the applicant’s suitability (including whether they currently have any outstanding criminal charges) for entering the country on a temporary basis, or staying in the country on a permanent basis. They are usually hired by the government for a permanent or contract-based position and may work to perform the following:


  • Review permanent residence, study or work permits, and visitor extension applications
  • Detect potential security threats and fraud attempts by interviewing those trying to enter the country
  • Approve or reject permanent residence, study or work permits, and visitor extension applications
  • Provide counsel and advice to individuals who wish to remain in the host country
  • Interpret relevant laws and explain decisions to people seeking admission or entry to the host country
  • Detain those who are trying to enter the country illegally
  • Determine the re-eligibility of people claiming refugee status


Is it for you?

Starting a new career or changing one is not an easy decision. For some it is a lifetime decision and for some a life changing experience.

People enter justice studies from all different backgrounds.  Those who thrive in this career are the ones who have:

  • Good judgment
  • A keen eye for detail
  • Self-discipline
  • An appreciation of Canada’s rich cultural diversity
  • Enjoyment working in different geographic locations in Canada or outside Canada.


A few important scenarios for your consideration:


Past Course-Program Credits


  • If you are already an immigration consultant and licensed, you can register for this program and L.A.P.E.C. may allow some credits toward some courses taken from L.A.P.E.C. or other designated similar program providers, helping you not only save on tuition fees but also time.


  • Those who qualify for subject credits may complete this program sooner and carry two diplomas with two skill sets: one for work as an Immigration Consultant, and the other for work in Citizenship and Immigration Case Processing and Enforcement Services with an option to work for the government or a private organization in Canada or overseas. Please use this link for past credit assessment policy and application


Work Location Flexibility 


  • If you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada who would like to work abroad for the Canadian government directly or indirectly, this program may help you to learn the required skill set for a suitable job.


Foreign Nationals


  • For international visitors or temporary residents in Canada, this program does not require a study visa or study permit because it is less than a six-month study period and, as per IRCC regulations/policy, does not require a study permit or visa. If interested, we can assist you with questions from A-Z.


  • If you are currently in Canada either visiting or on a temporary resident permit status; or under a bridging open work permit program waiting for a final decision on your PR application; or you have already submitted your PR application and are waiting for a final decision; you may take this course to learn the advanced-level skills. Once you have PR status, start your career matching this program without wasting time, ready to play your part in the Canadian economy. 


Regulatory Licensing and Binding 


Moreover, for the Citizenship and Immigration Case Processing and Enforcement Services Diploma, once you complete the program you don’t have to pass any other exam from any regulatory body. No more yearly licensing fees, CPDs, PMEs, record-keeping or audit, liability insurance or finding and dealing with clients or maintaining an office. This could be the most wonderful and the best career-related decision of your life.

Please call 905-499-3631 Ext 103 for more details and options, or click here to apply. If you take this course you may decide to choose to be a part of the decision-making or decision seeking process i.e. being an Immigration Consultant if you already are or be an officer. Having two options are better.


Acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to perform as an entry-level citizenship, immigration and enforcement officer at the federal or provincial level. Consider the roles and responsibilities of the immigration decision-making process and immigration enforcement officers, and examine and apply legislation, policy, and procedures. Explore the relationships that exist among police and other related border security agencies. Apply the best practices to specific case scenarios.
