Immigration Sector: Immigration and Ashton College

immigration sector: Immigration is a fast-growing industry, especially with the Canadian government's plans to bring nearly 1 million new immigrants in the next 3 years, says Ron McKay, director of immigration practitioner programs at Ashton College, according to Metro News. Here at Ashton College, we understand the need to fill the gap for skilled work in the immigration sector, which is why we developed a new program to help legal assistants advance their knowledge with specialization in immigration. Immigration Legal Assistant Certificate program prepares current and future administrative assistants for working in immigration offices, government offices or law firms. Ashton College has been providing education in the area of immigration consulting for over 10 years, helping hundreds of immigration practitioners achieve success in the industry. Students will learn basic immigration principles, develop an understanding of the code of ethics and liability, and gain knowledge of specific submission procedures. The new Immigration Legal Assistant Certificate program is designed to help each student develop a thorough understanding of the Canadian immigration system and procedures. ( As reported in the news.
