Report Fraud

We are not a government department, so we do not have the power to investigate immigration fraud. However, we will do what we can to help you report immigration fraud.

We urge Canadians to report any type of immigration or refugee fraud. Although it may not be too fashionable to talk about civic duty, it is important to realize that immigration fraud affects everyone in Canada. It is the responsibility of all Canadians to report people who are in Canada illegally, who are taking a job that legal Canadians might need, who are collecting social assistance or Employment Insurance illegally, who are violating other immigration laws, etc. Law Enforcement authorities and 34 million Canadians need your help. You may be the only one who knows about the fraud.

You can remain anonymous in making your report. We are providing below some instructions on how to do that. However, we urge you to make the report in person—if it is possible.
