I presently personally know and so do many others of a person, a new arrival too, who lives in a Quebec subsidized housing, receives a pension supplemental aid, who spends most of the year abroad because he has properties abroad.. Now the main perpetrators of residency fraud are wealthy or middle class immigrants who desire, for one reason or another, such as our free medicare services, free money, free pensions, a Canadian passport.
“What this involves is usually wealthy people who have a good standard of living in their own country and they would like to have immigration to Canada and a Canadian passport simply for the ease of travelling and not needing a visa for other countries,”
Why does it take a half a century to fix the systems that many of us rightfully already do know needs major repairs. Major inadequacies, problems here now have been happening for decades. Demand a fix to the Canadian immigration laws too and all the bad related personnel!! “So we have a government-approved loop hole to let dishonest people into the country and ensures we keep them here. Three cheers for our bad Canadian Immigration!! A ministry that never fails to disappoint.” Now what is needed is an expeditious way to deal with people that come here under false pretenses. They should be made to board the very next flight back to where ever they came from and put on a list of people not eligible to immigrate to Canada from that point forward. We also need an enforced way to deal with all, any of the bad lawyers, immigration consultants who make an industry out of helping false claimants milk our System.
Immigration Minister Jason Kenney says Immigration officials are also working with the Canada Border Services Agency and the RCMP, to investigate “nearly 11,000 individuals from more than 100 countries for attempting to cheat.” his department has begun the process of revoking citizenship from up to 3,100 individuals, as investigators probe nearly 11,000 people suspected of misrepresenting themselves in their quest to become citizens of Canada. Kenney said the government is targeting those individuals in order “to protect the value of Canadian citizenship.” Nearly 5,000 individuals who are yet to become Canadian citizens have been “flagged for additional security,” Kenney said, explaining that they are either known to be or suspected of trying to defraud the system.Typically, Kenney said, immigration fraud is perpetrated by unscrupulous consultants who advise would-be Canadians on the best ways to skirt the system. Kenney said.” We are taking action to strip citizenship and permanent residence status from people who don’t play by the rules and who lie or cheat to become a Canadian citizen.” Read more: http://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/11-000-individuals-being-investigated-for-immigration-fraud-kenney-1.949485#ixzz264zxyHd5
Kenney’s department is working closely with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).. and what about the others? Undeniable to many old and new comer crooks, bad canadians now too all get it easy. Even social assistance, supplemental pensions, while they work under the table and do not declare their income, and still do not declare their income, even from abroad, and some they even own nice cars and take vacations abroad often as I know, have witnessed it.. There are much too many more liars, tax evaders and abusers.. and too many useless civil servants it seems too.. I support their recent 1600 persons at Services Canada Ottawa lay offs rightfully too. Also next in other governmental departments too,,,
Ottawa’s crackdown on residency fraud is a timely reminder that a Canadian passport is something to be earned. You show your commitment to becoming a citizen of a new country by actually living there – not hedging your bets by spending almost all of your time back in your homeland. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/commentary/editorials/need-to-live-in-canada-to-become-a-citizen/article4534196/
The Canada Border Services Agency has found that’s especially burdensome for Ontario, where thousands of dubious Roma – or Gypsy – refugee claimants from Hungary congregate yearly, qualifying for welfare as soon as they set foot in Canada. Though 95% of their claims are ultimately rejected, abandoned or withdrawn, they still collect welfare benefits while their cases are processed. http://www.torontosun.com/2012/09/10/ont-should-end-easy-welfare-for-refugee-claimants-feds
