HomeTagmisrepresentation Archives - Immigration Lawyer Vancouver, Canada | Sas & Ing Immigration Law Centre

For years, my colleague Catherine Sas, K.C. and I have written blogs to warn the public about the serious consequences of committing a misrepresentation in immigration matters, which carries a five-year ban from making any future immigration applications. Unfortunately, misrepresentation continues to be a serious problem in the realm of immigration practice. That is why I’d like to explore the reasons why people choose to commit misrepresentations and explain why you should not fall into this trap. Read on if you want to learn more about two of the most common reasons that lead people to commit misrepresentations.

Of all the various statutory weaponry in an immigration officer’s arsenal, there is perhaps none so lethal in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) as S. 40, the statutory provision which defines misrepresentation. A misrepresentation finding has dire consequences - generally a five-year ban on making any future immigration application, but in some cases, a permanent bar to ever being able to come to Canada.
