What is Misrepresentation under Canadian Immigration & is it Serious?

We take a quick look at what is “Misrepresentation” in context of the Canadian Immigration and is it really a big deal.

“Misrepresentation” is regarded as withholding information directly or indirectly. During any Canadian Immigration related applications and or submissions. The main thing to remember is it does not have to be intentional in order for it to qualify as a “Misrepresentation”.

An example would be often in Canadian Immigration forms it is asked, whether you have been refused visa of any country. Out of ignorance or not really reading it properly, if you simply tick “no” and in fact, you have been refused a visa for (example, United States). This is a classic and a very simplistic example of “Misrepresentation”.

Misrepresentation can be of many types, it could be using forged documents, employment letters, educational credentials, the list can go on. The important thing to remember is if you are involved in a case of Misrepresentation it will be very difficult to overcome the same.
