CBSA charged an Indian agent for immigration violations

The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has charged Indian national Brijesh Mishra with immigration-related offenses, including unauthorized representation or advice for consideration, counseling misrepresentation, misrepresentation (direct or indirect misrepresentation and communicating false information), and non-compliance with the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA). 

The charges stem from an investigation initiated by CBSA after receiving information regarding Mr. Mishra’s status in Canada and his alleged involvement in fraudulent activities, including issuing fraudulent letters to Indian students on behalf of Canadian postsecondary institutions.

After learning about Mishra’s immigration status and his suspected involvement in “counseling misrepresentation,” according to CBSA, the agency launched an investigation. The allegations additionally involve issuing fake letters to Indian students on behalf of educational institutions in Canada.

According to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA), the CBSA charges include:

  • IRPA Section 91(1) Unauthorized Representation or Advice for Consideration – one count
  • IRPA Section 126 Counseling Misrepresentation – one count
  • IRPA Section 127(a) Misrepresentation (Direct or Indirect Misrepresentation) – one count
  • IRPA Section 127(b) Misrepresentation (Communicating False Information) – one count
  • IRPA Section 124(1)(a) Non-Compliance with the Act – one count

 

International students frequently select Canada as their study abroad destination since it is very simple to obtain a work permit. In 2022, there were more than 800,000 foreign students in Canada with legal visas, including about 320,000 Indians.

In accordance with a press statement from advocates for the students, those who were subject to deportation orders entered Canada on student visas in 2017 and 2018.

The students received “fake college admission letters drafted by their immigration consultants, namely a Jalandhar-based consultant named Brijesh Mishra” when they immigrated to Canada in 2017 and 2018 on student permits, according to a press release issued by advocates on behalf of hundreds of students who have been threatened with deportation due to the fraudulent letters.

“After the students arrived in Canada, the consultants informed them that they were unable to enroll in that specific college due to a variety of factors, including delays or a lack of seats. According to the press release, the students were instructed to switch colleges, which they did in order to begin their studies.

 

Nina Patel, Regional Director General, Pacific Region, CBSA;

“Our commitment to maintaining the integrity of Canada’s immigration system is reflected in the charges announced today, according to the Pacific Region Criminal Investigations Section of the CBSA. Our officers investigated these charges with diligence, and we will keep trying to make sure that those who break the law are held accountable”.
