Misrepresentation as it Relates to Immigration

​Being found inadmissible to Canada because of Misrepresentation is becoming more common each year. This is a severe issue and results in being banned for five years from making an application to return to Canada, and you will be unable to enter Canada for those five years.

Misrepresentation and how it happens
Misrepresentation occurs when information that is inconsistent, inaccurate or incomplete is provided to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) or Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).

Examples of misrepresentations would be:
-Failure to declare that you were previously refused a visa for another country
-Providing a document that is found to be fake
-Fail to mention a family member
-Declare employment experience which you do not actually have
-Procuring Permanent Residency by a non-genuine marriage

Misrepresented information can be provided, or neglected by you, a member of your family, or your representative. In all cases, it is the main applicant who is at fault – even if the principal applicant did not know the misrepresentation occurred.
