CBSA's Anti-Immigrant Fraud Measures

Last Updated: February 07, 2022

Immigrating to another country in pursuit of a better future is becoming increasingly trendy these days. People wish to relocate so that they can live in a nation with a greater quality of life than they do in their own country. Canada has recently emerged as one of the top options for individuals looking to relocate since it offers some of the best professional opportunities, inexpensive education, high-quality healthcare, and so on.


As the number of individuals wanting to move has risen, some people have established a bad habit of committing fraud and generating money by duping innocent people.


The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) have taken on the responsibility of safeguarding migrants against unethical scammers. Canada’s immigration system is constructed in such a way that no individual is subjected to bias. The rules and practices are also tailored to favor immigrants. Immigration fraud is not taken lightly and is thoroughly investigated by the CBSA and RCMP to ensure that no one is deceived into paying a hefty sum of money in the name of immigration and that border security is not jeopardized.


Several high-end immigration consultancies have been operating and directing customers to make unethical and fraudulent representations in their visa or citizenship applications in order to get an approval. This is a crime that can lead to imprisonment. Human trafficking is one of the many reasons why people commit immigration fraud. It is the CBSA and the RCMA’s mission to identify and prosecute people who commit this act.


Canada strives for the most transparent immigration system possible, free of scams and fraud, and has enacted rules and regulations accordingly. Residents in Canada are also asked to report anyone they see committing such a crime for the betterment of society, as this is what makes Canada a safe place to live.


It is not just the government’s job to prevent such immigration frauds, but it is also the responsibility of folks who live in Canada. The public is encouraged to report any suspicious immigration activity to the CBSA by calling 1-888-502-9060. Anyone with information on criminal activity should contact their local police department, the RCMP at 1-800-387-0020, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
