Misrepresentation:提交虚假信息、 文档或拒绝提供移民局要求提供的资料,向面试官撒谎。虚假陈述可导致5年内不予授予公民身份,如果已经获得身份后被证实有虚假陈述情况,可能被被吊销公民身份,再次获得身份需要等待至少十年。

When a person makes false statements, submits false information, submits false or altered documents, or withholds information relevant to their application to CIC. This is a crime. Documents can include:

  • Passports and travel documents;
  • Visas;
  • Diplomas, degrees, and apprenticeship or trade papers;
  • Birth, marriage, final divorce, annulment, separation or death certificates;
  • Police certificates.

Lying on an application or in an interview with a CIC officer is also an offence under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and the Citizenship Act.

Misrepresentation bars a person from being granted Canadian citizenship for a period of 5 years.

If misrepresentation is found to have occurred after someone becomes a citizen, this can result in the revocation of their citizenship and this individual must wait ten years before they can be granted citizenship again.
