March is Fraud Prevention Month: Be Ware of Immigration Fraud

March is Fraud Prevention Month in Canada. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) works to raise awareness about the different types of immigration fraud, how to recognize scams and fraudulent websites, how to properly choose an immigration or citizenship lawyer, and how to report fraud.

Each year, hundreds of thousands of people from all over the world choose to make Canada their home – whether temporarily or permanently. Unfortunately, there are people who try to take advantage of individuals going through the immigration or citizenship application process.

- Honourable Ahmed Hussen,
Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship

Canada's IRCC identified 4 distinct types of fraud that immigrants encounter:

  • Don’t fall for a disappearing act – how to identify and avoid “ghost” consultants.
  • Preventing fraud – know what to look for, and what the consequences could be.
  • Spot a scam – make sure you know what a social media or Web scam looks like.
  • Know your rights – detecting fraud and deception in the private refugee sponsorship stream.

IRCC has tip sheets and a YouTube fraud prevention playlist. For more information on not falling victim to immigration fraud: Canada.ca/immigration-fraud.
