Immigration Lawyer Charged By RCMP for Allegedly Coaching Clients To Lie

Immigration Lawyer allegedly encouraged clients to make up stories

A Windsor immigration lawyer has been charged with fabricating evidence, counseling misrepresentation and misrepresentation by the RCMP following a police investigation that saw the lawyer and her assistant allegedly coach refugees to make up stories in order to stay in Canada.

The full article can be found here in the National Post.

When these stories make the news it is generally unregulated consultants who are encouraging fraudulent behaviour but it’s an unfortunate turn of events when it’s a lawyer in the news.

No one, not an immigration consultant or an immigration lawyer, should encourage you to lie in order to immigrate to Canada. If they’re caught, they’ll be charged, and if you’re caught, your immigration to Canada will be in jeopardy.

If anyone encourages you to make up stories or offers to provide you with fake documents, leave immediately!
