Unscrupulous individuals use the Internet to offer foreign nationals false educational or employment opportunities in Québec. Some claim to represent the government, well-known organizations or large corporations, while others use false documents to convince potential immigrants of the credibility of their proposals.
You should be on your guard, for example:
  • if someone you’ve “met” on a chat site promises that he or she has the necessary contacts to get you into an immigration program abroad for a specific immigration category (e.g. refugee class) to which you do not belong, as well as if they also ask you to find several other people to participate in such a program.
  • if individuals who claim to be representatives of the government, well-known organizations or large corporations use e-mail addresses like Yahoo!, Hotmail or AOL.
  • if they ask you to pay the fees required via a money transfer agent. Reputable transfer agents recommend that you should never use their services to send money to strangers;
  • if you are asked to enter your file number on a website. In fact, the Ministère will never ask you to enter your file number on its website, except on secure platforms for an online application for a Québec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ) for studies or an online application for a Québec selection certificate (CSQ) under the Regular Skilled Worker Program (Mon projet Québec).

The Irish Government has passed legislation to create technological universities. Our most recent partner, Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), is well advanced in the work required to shift to this new category of institution and is expected to be among the first to gain such approval as early as next year.

The Technological Universities Act was passed into law on 21 March 2018, and, as the name suggests, it provides for new technological universities to be created by merging two or more existing institutes of technology.

The strategy to create new technological universities out of the IOT system is enshrined in Ireland’s National Strategy for Higher Education to 2030. The government envisions that these new institutions will be based in different regions around the country, and will focus on science and technology programmes that are ‘vocationally and professionally oriented’.
Ryerson, Sheridan and the City of Brampton will work together to create more spaces for postsecondary education in Brampton. Sheridan has welcomed the announcement made by the Honorable Mitzie Hunter, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development and the Honorable Harinder Malhi, Minister of the Status of Women, that Ryerson, Sheridan and the City of Brampton will work together to create more spaces for postsecondary education in Brampton.

The new facility, to be located adjacent to the GO station in Downtown Brampton, is expected to open in September, 2022. The intent is to provide additional post-secondary capacity in new programs at a new campus to respond to the needs of Brampton -- one of Canada’s fastest growing communities. The venture may accommodate up to 2,000 new undergraduate students.

The Davis Campus will remain Sheridan’s home in Brampton and Sheridan will ensure it continues to thrive. Our high-quality, applied educational programs and research projects will continue to serve Peel Region, and new programs and partnerships will continue to be developed. The partnership with Ryerson will provide even more opportunity to innovate and fuel student success.

The Government of Ontario announced a $90 million investment in this new venture, while the City of Brampton has committed $50 million to the new venture and $100 million for a Centre for Innovation (a joint-use facility to include public and academic libraries and an innovation zone).

The focus of the new partnership will be on creating new offerings in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) education, to ensure that graduates understand the language of technology and the language of business. The process now begins to determine specifics on programming.

Indian Students aspiring to move to US for higher studies have recently been advised by the US Embassy to not to prepare the answers for visa interviews beforehand. June 6 will be observed as Student Visa Day by the US missions in India this year. On this day, officials will exclusively adjudicate student visas for Indians seeking to pursue their studies in the US.

Instead of appearing for interviews with a prepared speech, students are advised to pay attention to the questions asked and give genuine answers. Also, the Embassy warns Indian students to be aware of fraudulent Agents and do not appear with forged documents as it might make them permanently ineligible for visa applications. Every year thousands of students apply for F1 visas and move to USA for further education. This advice by the US Embassy will help several Indian Student aspirants to clear their interviews and study further in USA in future.

IRCC intends to implement the Study Direct Stream (SDS) in both India and Vietnam (similar to what is already in place in China and the Philippines) on Feb 01, 2018. The IELTS requirement in India is likely to be raised from an overall score of 6.0 (with no band less than 5.5) to an overall score of 6.0. (with no band less than 6.0.). With momentum for studying in Canada very high in India, it is expected that student numbers will continue to expand. When implemented, SDS will replace SPP in India. Students will be required to purchase a GIC ($10,000) and provide proof of tuition payment for the first year. Online applications will also be accepted.

However the colleges maybe seeking an extension to this start date of 1st Feb , so watch this space for more info !

Students are advised not to panic, but seek visa guidance (if required), from Canadian Government Authorized Consultants who are ICCRC members. Do not get fooled with wrong information by unauthorized consultants.

Almost all international students in Canada want to get settled in the country after they graduate, but only a few manage to do so. The Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador has come up with an update which will enable the international graduates of Memorial University and the College of the North Atlantic to live, work and settle easily in the province.

Now, the graduates of these institutions who are working in a field which is not related to their study can apply for provincial nomination as long as they secure an indeterminate job offer for a full-time position in this province.

This change to the field of study requirement only applies to MUN and CNA graduates and it will help the international students to integrate and establish professional networks in the province. This amendment to the International Graduate Category has given an opportunity to all the graduates who are not working in the field related to their study to become permanent residents of Canada. Whereas, International graduates of other provinces and territories in Canada will continue to be required to have a job offer in their field of study, in order to be eligible under the International Graduate category.

2017 Fraud Prevention Month Campaign Targets Audiences in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia

The Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) is launching a worldwide multilingual campaign to encourage the public to take extra measures to ensure that individuals offering immigration and citizenship assistance are authorized. March is Fraud Prevention Month in Canada, and 2017 marks ICCRC's fourth consecutive annual campaign.

"Our 2017 theme is 'Not Licensed? Not Legal!' and this year we are truly going global," said Lawrence Barker, Acting President and CEO of ICCRC. "In addition to reaching out to our audiences across Canada, our messages will be viewed by millions in English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Punjabi and Mandarin throughout Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia."

ICCRC is the national regulatory body that governs Canadian Immigration and citizenship consultants as well as international student advisors. A member of Canada's Fraud Prevention Forum, the Council joins the federal Competition Bureau and hundreds of businesses and organizations to warn consumers of fraud. ICCRC recommends that people who seek immigration or citizenship advice visit the "Find an immigration Professional" page on its website (www.iccrc-crcic.ca) to determine whether an immigration consultant is a lawful practitioner. Anyone not authorized should be reported to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) Border Watch Toll-Free Line at 1-888-502-9060.

Federal law requires anyone providing Canadian Immigration or citizenship advice for a fee or other consideration must be a member in good standing of a provisional or territorial law society (a lawyer or an authorized paralegal in Ontario), the Chambre des notaries du Quebec, or ICCRC. Anyone providing any immigration or citizenship services, who are not a member of one of these organizations, is acting in contravention of the law and should be reported. Punishment can include a fine of up to $100,000 and/or imprisonment up to two years.

ICCRC's daily Fraud Prevention Month campaign messages can be followed on Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedln and a www.immigrationfraud.ca.

As per current policies of the Government of Canada , it is illegal for individuals and companies to consult on any immigration and visa related manner unless one is certified and approved . Dealing with matters relating to immigration/visas etc by unauthorized /crooked /ghost consultants may lead to legal action punishable by fines and jail terms. Canadian Government spends millions of dollars on reaching out to potential applicants on matters regarding choosing consultants.Authorised consultants should be members of bodies like ICCRC or Canadian Bar Societies .
Numerous cases are reported every year with visa refusals based on non genuine documents like fake educational documents, IELTS scores, fraudulent financial papers, and/or experience letters. Please do not be gullible and get yourself entangled with agents who promise all this. The Canadian High Commission makes a thorough check on all documents and the likelihood of fraud documents getting through are highly unlikely . If caught with fraud documents, a student risks the chance of not only visa refusal but a BAN for visa application for a specific period of time. Always use genuine documents.
