Misrepresentation occurs when information is provided to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) or to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) that is inconsistent, inaccurate, or incomplete. Misrepresented information can be provided (or omitted) by applicant, a family member, or their representative.

Misrepresentation is considered an offence as per Immigration, Refugee & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and a person can be refused entry to Canada, have his/ her legal status in Canada revoked or application rejected if misrepresentation is found anywhere in the process.

A finding of misrepresentation is tough to turn around but luckily, there are solutions to challenge it on a number of occasions.
