Canada freezes deportation of Indian students who used fraudulent university letters


Canada’s Immigration Minister Sean Fraser announced on Wednesday that the deportation of numerous students who used fraudulent university acceptance letters to enter the country will be frozen. The decision comes after the Canadian Broadcasting Corp reported in March that several students from India had received deportation papers for using forged documents to enter Canada in an alleged immigration scheme. The acceptance letters appeared to have been written by universities, but the Canada Border Services Agency informed the students that the documents were fake and warned them that they could face deportation. Students have claimed that they were unaware the documents were forged and have blamed the alleged fraud on India-based immigration agents who helped them apply. Fraser stated that a special task force would examine every case of a student who had been told to leave, and any pending removals would be halted temporarily. Official data show that there were more than 800,000 foreign students with active visas in Canada in 2022, with some 320,000 from India. Canada is a popular destination for international students since it is relatively easy to obtain a work permit. Students who were victimized by fraudsters will be allowed to remain in Canada, while those who are complicit in a fraudulent scheme will be held accountable. Canada plans to take in a record 500,000 new permanent residents in 2025. The Migrant Workers Alliance for Change has been supporting the students, saying they have spent years in Canada.
