The IPZ Process of Acceptance

The IPZ program is designed around three four-month terms a year. Only 20 participants are accepted for each term. Intakes happen in January, May and September and if you are accepted, you will benefit from four months of advanced networking, mentoring and business support specific to your practice.


With access to resources, tools and experienced individuals, your time is likely to result in a much more established and stable business going forward. This is because IPZ includes weekly seminars and networking as well as ongoing mentoring, physical space, and being part of a group of other immigration practitioners establishing their practices.


Once you complete the four month term, leave IPZ armed with all the knowledge and expertise you will need for success.
