(Misrepresentation, fraud, or concealment of information)
As the principal applicant, you are responsible for the accuracy and reliability of the documents and information submitted with a Nomination Application to the MPNP and for any information or documents provided on your behalf by a person who you authorize. The MPNP may consult third parties to verify the veracity of the documents submitted. A false declaration, fraudulent document or concealment of information could result in the rejection of an application, withdrawal of nomination, and the refusal to examine any other application from that applicant for a period of two years, and , if applicable, may result in exclusion from Canada and/or become grounds for prosecution or removal.
If, at any time during the submission of an Expression of Interest (EOI), the application process, nomination stage or submission of Application for Permanent Residence, it is found that you have misrepresented facts, supplied fraudulent documents or concealed relevant information from the MPNP, the MPNP reserves the right to close the application and withdraw the nomination (if issued).
Routine checks are conducted with issuing authorities, home government departments and other reliable sources to verify whether information provided and documents submitted are genuine.
There is no excuse or justification for misrepresentation. If a required document is not available, you should attach a written explanation when submitting your application and, if possible, provide other documents or information that might substantiate the issue in question.
Misrepresentation or withholding material facts relating to your Application for Permanent Residence in Canada is a criminal offence.
