Following the promise of the Australian government to protect people emigrating to Australia, Jason Kenney, the Canadian Immigration Minister, also warned applicants of Canadian visa to beware of fake and unregistered migration agents while applying for Canadian visa to come to Canada.
After the Australian government uncovered this week a racket that involved migration agents and visa holders of Australia, registered migration agents of Australia have urged the Australian government to quickly get in control of the situation and protect people coming to Australia.
The Canadian government also, in its efforts to protect potential applicants, released waning advertisements this week in order to make potential applicants of Canadian visa aware of how to protect themselves from fake migration agents.
Kenney said that his government has a zero-tolerance level in case of fake and dishonest immigrant agents who make false promises and cheat prospective immigrants. He said that the government wants immigrants to learn the way to protect themselves against any kind of fraud.
Minister Kenney said that the government wants immigration consultants from all over the world to know that everything would be done to protect the integrity of the immigration system of Canada.
Mainstream and ethnic Internet press will be involved in the advertising campaign which will direct people to the website of Citizenship and Immigration Canada where potential applicants will get valuable information that will assist them in finding legal migration agents and lawyers.
The campaign will run along with a video posting containing warnings in Multilanguage and the same would be posted on YouTube, CIC website and overseas missions.
