What is Misrepresentation in Canadian Immigration Law?


Misrepresentation is document fraud that involves lying or providing false information or documents to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).


Misrepresentation can encompass a wide range of false or altered documents including passports, travel documents, diplomas, degrees, certificates of birth,  police certificates and so on.


Immigration and Refugee Protection Act states:



  •         40 (1) A permanent resident or a foreign national is inadmissible for misrepresentation

    •         (a) for directly or indirectly misrepresenting or withholding material facts relating to a relevant matter that induces or could induce an error in the administration of this Act;

    •         (b) for being or having been sponsored by a person who is determined to be inadmissible for misrepresentation;

    •         (c) on a final determination to vacate a decision to allow their claim for refugee protection or application for protection; or

    •         (d) on ceasing to be a citizen under

      •         (i) paragraph 10(1)(a) of the Citizenship Act, as it read immediately before the coming into force of section 8 of the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act, in the circumstances set out in subsection 10(2) of the Citizenship Act, as it read immediately before that coming into force,

      •         (ii) subsection 10(1) of the Citizenship Act, in the circumstances set out in section 10.2 of that Act, or
