Immigration Fraud Costs two Men Up To $100,000

Two men face fines of up to $100,000 or five years in jail for immigration fraud

Two men in Nova Scotia, one a Canadian citizen and one a permanent resident, are facing up to $100,000 in fines or up to five years in jail for helping people get Canadian citizenship and permanent resident status in Canada.    

The police have not mentioned how the men fraudulently helped others come to Canada, but forging documents and helping people make it look as if they’ve lived in Canada for a period of time when they actually haven’t are two common ways.

While the police only mentioned these two men, they have a paper trail of thousands of documents that will likely lead them to those who used their services. In many cases, these people can have their permanent residence status and Canadian citizenship revoked, as well as be deported from Canada.

Let this be a reminder: Hiring a licensed and qualified, legitimate immigration lawyer is usually your best bet when immigrating to Canada. If you commit fraud to immigrate to Canada or deal with an immigration consultant who does, you are only hurting your chances and you are likely to be arrested.

Spectacular experience. Completely smooth process, they were able to answer any of my questions any time and I had peace of mind throughout the application time, which was invaluable. I have recommended them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications, and will continue to do so. Worth every penny.
