Graduate facing exclusion order after college admission letter revealed to be fake

A woman from rural India who completed her postsecondary studies in Canada has received an exclusion order after a review showed her original college acceptance letter from Seneca College was a fake procured by a private immigration agent, reports CBC. Karamjeet Kaur, who had reportedly been unaware that the agent had committed fraud, instead completed a diploma at NorQuest College in 2020. Kaur has been working in Canada and had applied for permanent residency, but was told about the fraud in May 2021 and was recently issued an exclusion order after a decision-maker said she should not have fully relied on the immigration consultant. Her lawyer says it is unreasonable for the decision-maker to expect Kaur, who had never had a phone or internet access in India, to confirm her acceptance.
