Canadian officials have accused an Indian man named Brijesh Mishra of giving false university acceptance letters to Indian students and other crimes relating to immigration. After learning about Mishra’s immigration status to Canada and his engagement in activities involving counselling misrepresentation, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) opened an investigation into his actions.
According to CBSA, Mishra is accused of five crimes under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. Mishra, who owns an immigration firm in Jalandhar, reportedly vanished just before the controversy surfaced, according to a report in the Indian Express.
International students frequently choose 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 valid visas, including about 320,000 Indians.
Over 700 Indian students were slapped with deportation orders earlier this year for allegedly using false passports to enter Canada in an immigration scheme. Later, students flocked to the streets, alleging that they had been defrauded.
