Immigration Scams In Canada Are Everywhere & The Feds Are Sharing Tips To Stay Safe

The government says it's likely a scam if you are told to pay to get an application form, given a deal that is "too good to be true," promised a job that pays surprisingly high or given the opportunity to get your application completed faster.

To avoid the scams, the feds suggest searching if anyone has reported an issue with the website you're suspicious of, not accepting emails sent without your permission and always reading the terms and conditions before continuing.

If you do ever come across a fake website, you should report it immediately to the police and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.
