Alexander Dan Gheciu, had been granted full membership in CSIC (Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants) on 13 April 2006, the very date this organization became the self- regulatory body of the “immigration consultant” profession. Initiated by the Canadian government, CSIC used to oversee the activity of its members, ensure they constantly upgrade their skills and, first and foremost, protect the public at large against unscrupulous and unauthorized representatives. When the Department of Citizenship and Immigration replaced CSIC with ICCRC in order to enhance the consumer protection component, Dan was granted ab initio membership with the new regulator, on June 30, 2011. He has also been a member of the Organization of Professional Immigration Consultants (currently known as CAPIC) since 1994 and acted as its director between 2000 and 2002. He has been handling immigration matters since 1991, first with a reputed law firm in Toronto, then as a director of both “D&G Europe Consulting” and “DG Certified Immigration Consultants “.
