Transcript for “Becoming Canadian: Combating immigration fraud” video

WATCH VIDEO

Video length: 2:30 minutes


Canada is the destination of choice for a quarter of a million people each year seeking a new home. They’re attracted by the prize of Canadian citizenship; a strong democracy and a stable government. Our immigration system is fair – by law — to each and every newcomer.

Unfortunately, some newcomers are victims of scams – duped by immigration fraud artists. Irma Luque, Ricardo Miranda and their son Christian left Chile a dozen years ago for a new life in Canada. They now live in Toronto as permanent residents, but achieving that status was very hard. They put their faith in a Canadian Consultant who offered them work and visas. This consultant charged the family five thousand dollars U.S, and kept them waiting for years – yet he delivered no results.

Ricardo Miranda/ Immigration Scam Victim

“I feel bad. I can say nothing. Because maybe this guy call the police or call immigration. I don’t know. You know, I’m scared about my family.”

This family is not alone. Every year, many newcomers – isolated from home and friends, with limited language skills – are lured by false promises of high paying jobs and guaranteed visas by unscrupulous immigration representatives.

Robin Seligman/Certified Immigration Lawyer

“They just want to make a buck and at the end of the day people have to understand they will lie, they will do whatever they have to get their money.”

There are lots of scams. Ads in publications from around the world offer jobs and settlement in Canada – for fees reaching into thousands of dollars. Crudely constructed letters — note the starfish background – claim to represent the government of Canada.

Many deceptive internet sites promise visas and employment at very high cost – one features a Wooly Mammoth – not exactly a Canadian symbol.

No one can guarantee you a visa to Canada or move you up in line. But when you need help, there are many good immigration consultants. Just make sure they are accredited.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada provides free advice and visa application forms on its Website.

Anne Arnott/Director General International Region

“You cannot lie on your application and still go to Canada. If we find out there is a lie you won’t be going anywhere. Or if you do end up in Canada we will take steps to remove you.”
