Canadians Against Immigration Fraud
Who are we?
Canadians Against Immigration Fraud is a nonprofit organization registered under provincial laws with the Government of Ontario, Canada. A key objective of this organization is to council Canadian citizens who are victims of immigration fraud, mainly in the form of marriage fraud. The organization works with Immigration Canada and other Government agencies in the detection, prevention and reporting of these fraudulent activities. When a foreign national commits marriage fraud, it is extended to our social, health care and legal aid systems and ultimately it becomes a burden on this nation's resources. This organization was formed as a need to address this issue that is growing in our society. As Canadians, we have a moral duty to put a stop to this problem and return our society to good governance and its highest values that has for so long commanded the respect of the world.
Who are our members and what do we stand for.
Our current members are people who have been affected by "marriage fraud". What is marriage fraud? A marriage fraud is committed when an individual marries for the sole purpose of gaining entry into Canada. When a foreign spouse is sponsored into Canada and within hours, days or a few weeks, walks out on the marriage. He/She goes to a support system sponsored by members of his/ her community, that constitutes fraud. Marriage is a sacred union and when one party is genuine with their intentions and feelings and the sponsored party has a deceptive mind, a mind that focuses only on the gaining of entry into Canada, then the fundamentals of the marriage never existed and must be rejected. In other words, we have to look behind the veil of the marriage to see intent. This " paper marriage" is in contravention of the Immigration act, specifically section 4. Scores of Canadian citizens and permanent residents are being deceived by foreign nationals entering into this one-sided marriage. The number of these cases being reported to us is growing every week. Section 4 bad faith, Sec.40 misrepresentation, Sec.41 non-compliance with the Immigration & Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) are shamelessly used by these foreign nationals without any regard for society's values. The victims of these fraud marriages are traumatized in so many ways that very often, they shy away from mainstream society for fear of people asking of them, "what happened". Immigration fraud also includes the use of misinformation and fraudulent use of false documents including passports which are used in deceiving Canadian Immigration and Border Services personnel. We strongly condemn all cases of deception when used as a method to gain entry into Canada. We offer our full support to the Canadian Border Services in having these people deported.
What do we do for the victims?
