Help Centre what do you need help with?

Is it legal to provide false information on my immigration or citizenship application, if a representative advises me to do so?

No. Representatives who advise you to provide false information or documents are breaking the law.

If you give false information, your application will be refused.

We may also:

  • forbid you from entering Canada for at least 5 years
  • give you a permanent record of fraud with us
  • take away your status as a permanent resident or Canadian citizen
  • have you charged with a crime or
  • remove you from Canada
