As per the Ontario Immigration Act, providing fake information on your immigration applications is a punishable offense. In Ontario, Canada, the provincial government has announced that it will reveal the names of persons sanctioned for giving out wrong information or submit fraudulent documents in their immigration applications.
From 3rd May, the provincial government shall release the names of candidates, employers, and representatives who have received an administrative order for letting out imprecise, incorrect, or misleading information to the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP).
As per the Ontario Immigration Act of 2015, those applicants, as well as employers or their representatives who apply to the OINP, should state information that is accurate,” “correct,” and “not misleading,” failing which an administrative order shall be issued against them for any violation of this laid out decree.
This order by this administration of Ontario shall permit the immigration director to forbid the candidate, employer, or representative to apply to the OINP for a continuous duration of five years in total, or there can even be an imposition of an administrative monetary penalty.
This penalty cannot go beyond $150,000 for every violation and should be mandatorily paid within 60 days after the service of the order. Also, as an addition, there shall be other sanctions subjected to the candidate, employer, or representative upon rejection of these OINP applications. Or when any related approvals are canceled or even prosecuted under the Provincial Offences Act.
The OINP stated that “Publishing contraventions of the Immigration Act is an important measure to protect the public and further strengthen the program’s integrity.” The Ontario PNP program is regarded as one of the top provincial nominee programs to have invited aspiring and eligible candidates looking for career possibilities and a comfortable and high standard of living.
