3 Canadian Illegal Immigrants Myths

This week’s list of 3 Untrue Immigration Myths has a focus on illegal immigrants, which are often subject to much prejudice in Canada.

Canadian Illegal Immigrants Myths

The following myths are untrue however, are commonly passed off as legitimate arguments:

Illegal Immigrants Myth 1.  Illegal Immigrants Are Criminals

Illegal immigration is a fact of life in most countries, including Canada. But illegal immigrants are not committing any crime, because the Canadian Criminal Code doesn’t list it as a crime – anywhere. Sometimes, immigrants have no choice and face persecution, rape, death, war or worse and have no choice but to be illegal while they try to get their lives on track.

Illegal Immigrants Myth 2. Drain on Canada’s Social Services and Take Jobs

Illegal immigrants cannot work legally, cannot enroll in educational courses lasting longer than six months, must pay for health care even in a costly life-threatening emergency and cannot get welfare or disability payments. These exclusions also extend to people who have allowed their work or study permit to expire or have been visiting Canada and have been in the country for less than six months.

Illegal Immigrants Myth 3. Illegal Immigrants do not pay taxes

Illegal immigrants cannot work legitimately and therefore cannot pay income taxes. However, they may pay property taxes as well as all applicable sales taxes – while still being ineligible for all of the services and benefits these taxes actually pay for.

Illegal immigrants don’t have it easy in any way in Canada, despite the myth that they do. If you are living in Canada with no status or are an illegal immigrant in Canada, you may have options such as filing a humanitarian and compassionate grounds application, and an immigration lawyer can help you find which one is right for you.

    Hello, I am Mandeep Brar. I have recently been issued a study visa by the Canada High commission which lasts for 2 and a half years. Would I have to extend my study visa When I apply for post graduation work permit for three years after doing my 2 year course?? In other words, would the duration of my study visa affect the duration of my post graduation work permit?? I am confused, please help

    Hello,
    I am an international student with a 4 year student visa. I stayed in Canada for about a year and a half and then left , unfortunately when I went back home a lot of problems occurred , and one of them is been kicked out of my home after a family issue.Now my only option is to return to Canada to work and hopefully continue my education if possible. My visa expires after 2 years , will I be able to apply for a PR or work permit after my visa expires ?

    I’m a 20 year old illegal Mexican who has a Employment Authorization visa. I am wanting to go to Canada to become a citizen or permanent resident. How will it help me do so? Would I still qualify for any type of Visa that will allow me to work and stay in Canada? I’m allowed to work in the u.s or go to school but can’t do so because college is expensive. Will moving to Canada be better off or should I stay here. Also I’m planning to marry my girlfriend soon and she’s a green card holder in the u.s would I be able to bring her with me if we don’t have money at the moment?

    Hello,

    My husband and I and infant daughter are natural born U.S. citizens. My husband has Ph.Ds in chemistry and materials engineering. If Trump’s anti-science policies become really bad, can we immigrate to Canada illegally and apply for refugee status? What would be the ramifications of doing so? Would my husband ever be able to work in Canada, or would be we better off moving to Germany? I have a masters degree in education and teach middle school life science. It is my understanding that there would be no way for me to work in Canada, but, if you know of any way around this, I would, of course, like to be able to contribute positively to whatever place we end up, as well.

      Hi Lily,

      Thank you for your inquiry, I’m glad you contacted us! Many people have already immigrated to Canada because of the proposed science laws. For your husband to work in Canada, he must obtain a work visa. Since he does have a high degree, he may be approved for Express Entry depending on the market. Here at VisaPlace, we have helped thousands of clients in your the same situation.

    Does the work experience adquired in USA while illegal could be given full points by CIC when evaluating an application for permanent resident in Canada if I had paid USA income taxes during those years?

    I entered USA in 2005 on a 3 year visa (J1 as a School Teacher), after it expired (in 2008) I decided to remain in the country illegally. For the next 8 years I have been working as a Process Engineer (I’m a Chemical Engineer) and I want immigrate to Canada but want to find out if my work experience would count or if I would lose those points.

    hi, had caq and student permit for 2011-march2014. when i applied to renew caq i got denied for low grade, couldnt renew student permit. i stayed out of status(not working or going to school, no problem with the law) for 14 months after that because i was misinformed about the moratorium stating no deportation for haitian. when moratorium got lifted in dec 2014 haitian had until june2015 to restore their status. misinformed i thought it was either inside or outside of canada. so i left in may 2015 for haiti with new university admisson for sept 2015 thinking it would be quicker to get new student permit. but i got refuse in sept 2015 then when i got another admission for jan2017 i apply for the visa and got refuse again even when i wrote explanation letter about my misunderstandting. all my documents for identification, financial ressources and letter of admission are correct. in the letter of refusal the reason are “we’re not convince that you will leave canada after you study considering your previews travels” … i dont want to loose my admission a second time, what can i do to convince them that i will not stay illegaly this time? what are my option now to correct my situation if im inamissibility and how long will it take? will i ever be able to go back to canada and how long will it take?

      Hello Pawan. Your study visa might allow you to obtain a Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP), depending on the study program that you are in. The PGWP will give you the chance to qualify for Permanent Residency through the Canadian Experience Class program.

          Hello Yashir. You will first need a job offer from a Canadian company. You can search the Canadian job boards such as http://www.monster.ca or http://www.indeed.ca . Once you have your job offer, we can help you obtain the work visa that you will need to come to Canada.

    hi , my parents and i have been trying to move to Canada through the right channels , embassies etc but they’ve proven to be fruitless. My dad is a chemical engineer and my mom is a teacher, if we manage to get into canada illegally, what are the chances that we will be allowed to stay given my dads profession if we get caught?

      Hello Dany,

      Thanks for the message. If your partner is in Canada illegally, then it will not be possible to sponsor them, and it would be highly recommended for you to speak with one of our experienced immigration lawyers who would be happy to help your partner remain in Canada. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any further questions.

      Regards,
      Owen
