NOT FOR SALE – Minister Jason Kenney has asserted that people like these shouldn’t be taking the law lightly. “Canadian citizenship is not for sale – not at all. There are a number people hailing for various parts of the world do not hesitate in making a mockery of our ingenuousness and always misunderstand the true value of being a Canadian. We assure that all those who used illegitimate measures to obtain citizenship, will be dealt with severely,” he added.
REVOCATIONS – CIC, Citizenship and Immigration Canada will be raising the number of revocations it tracks due to its continuing examinations into citizenship hoax in the country. Up to now, just about 1,800 people would have obtained their residency illegally, a lot of by availing the services of fake and hoax consultants to feign their legitimate status in Canada. These bogus consultants have minted a lot of money by misguiding visa aspirants.
DEFEDING THE LEGITIMATE – Jason Kenney revealed that the country saw 143,535 new people migration in 2010. Of course, the main chunk of these new Canadians was honest and legitimate immigrants. “Our aim is also to defend the legitimate and honest new citizens gearing ourselves up against all those undocumented citizens who abuse the value of being a Canadian by obtaining it unlawfully,” Jason Kenney added.
MEASURES – CIC is adding to the supplies needed to fight citizenship deceit in the year gone by. Several of the people under probing are alleged of turning to consultants to wrongly set up proof of residence in Canada, even though they stay overseas for virtually all of the time. Families might pay $25,000 for 4 to5 years just for fake residence. Citizenship dupe is a worldwide dilemma. 60 different countries have reported such cases in large numbers.
CROOKED CONSULTANTS – The Canadian government is embarking on a concentrated effort to nab consultants who play a significant part in the whole dupe. Initially brought in as the Cracking Down on Crooked Consultants Act, Bill C-35 was brought in by June 30 of this year. The Act enforces fines on illegal agents who offer, or propose to provide, counsel or representation for a charge at some phase of an immigration request or procedure.
