Misconceptions and #FakeNews about Canada & U.S. Immigration

Misconceptions and #FakeNews about Canada & U.S. Immigration

Do you want to move to Canada or the United States? ⁣Are you confused by conflicting information and worried about immigration scams and fake news? Canada is a wonderful country with many opportunities and unfortunately, many people who want to move to Canada are deceived by immigration scams and fraud. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) have reported increases in immigration fraud including fake websites, employment scams, ghost immigration consultants, and false fees and promises.

At Ackah Law, our practice receives calls every day from foreign workers who have many misconceptions about moving to Canada such as:

  • You can move to Canada with a criminal record
  • It's easy to be a refugee to Canada - we accept everyone
  • Anyone can advise on immigration law
  • How to leave Canada and maintain your Permanent Residence
  • You can easily purchase a Canadian company so you can move to Canada
  • There are some immigration lawyers who have connections with the government and can fast-track your application

Immigration laws and policies can be confusing, and they change frequently. There are many dishonest unreputable people who take advantage of people who desperately want to move to Canada for a better life. It can be confusing for a foreigner to know who is telling the truth, and to find someone who will provide accurate legal advice to help them move to Canada or the U.S.
