CBSA issues deportation letters to Indian students who applied through fraudulent agent


The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has reportedly issued deportation letters to Indian students who applied for student visas through an agent that committed fraud. The Toronto Star reports that the Indian agency has since closed and that the fraud was discovered when these students’ letters were examined after they applied for permanent residency. The agent reportedly did not put his name on the visa applications, but made it seem that the students were representing themselves and so were responsible for the fraudulent letters. It is unclear how many students are affected by this situation, as PIE News reports that media outlets have provided estimates ranging from “dozens” to 700 affected students.
