Don’t forget the Canadian Border Security Agency (CBSA) recently issued deportation letters for more than 700 Indian students after discovering that their admission offer letters for educational institutes were fake.
Immigration Minister Sean Fraser has confirmed that IRCC has been actively looking into the reports of fake acceptance letters.
Fraser also tweeted that the authorities in Canada want to find the culprits instead of punishing victims who will be allowed to fight their cases and present evidence in support.
He further added that Canada realizes the level of contribution overseas students offer to our country while saying that the authorities are committed to evaluating every case thoroughly to support victims.
Canada is also collaborating with various institutions to ensure acceptance letters are valid at the time of application.
A study abroad firm based in Jalandhar was found to have files of 700 fraudulent visa applications for overseas students between 2018 and 2022.

Students lost their seats after landing in Canada while being forced to take admission to small local colleges.
Those students applied for Canadian permanent residency and provided different supporting documents after completing their courses and fulfilling all work requirements.
The documents were scrutinized by CBSA based on the visa granted to the students. As a result, all the admission offer letters turned out to be fake, pushing the authorities to issue deportation notices to students. Of course, they were given a chance to explain themselves.
According to reports, CBSA officials didn’t have sufficient evidence confirming that the agent took care of all the documentation to accept the victims’ claims of being innocent.
The failure of the Canadian visa and airport authorities to properly check the authenticity of all documents before issuing visas was also ignored by the CBSA.
