Toronto NRIs, Launches Major Fight Against Immigration Fraud
formed an organization called:
“Canadians Against Immigration Fraud”.


Runaway spouses....

The Canadian Marriage Fraud Victim Society, Vancouver has already documented 200 cases and believes there are many, many more. "Most of those that we have involve spouses from India because we deal largely with the Indo-Canadian community but I think it's happening in all immigrant communities," says spokesman NRI, an abandoned bride living in Vancouver. "We believe there are thousands of cases but people are too embarrassed to come forward."

Another victim SAID, "It is very difficult and Nobody listens to you."

The Canadian Marriage Fraud Victim Society argues that the program doesn't do enough to protect Canadians from unscrupulous paramours. They have presented a 20,000-signature petition to Parliament requesting that permanent residence should no longer be automatic for immigrants sponsored here by their Canadian spouses. Instead they want Canada to follow the example set by the United States and Australia, where the marriage must last three years before foreign spouses can attain their permanent papers.

Now, Toronto victims established new organization, reported by Sampuran Banet:

Canadian Victims of immigration marriage fraud have formed an organization called: “Canadians Against Immigration Fraud”. It is registered as a non-profit organization under the laws of the province of Ontario. The objectives of the organization are as follows:

• Unite all Canadians interested in the matters of immigration marriage fraud.
• To gather and exchange ideas, data, and statistics from victims of immigration marriage fraud.
• To make inquiries to the proper government offices for further investigation into the matter.
• Provide emotional support to Canadians who are the victims of immigration fraud.
• To research and establish patterns that is most commonly used to gain entry to Canada via fraud.
• Rendering assistance to the government by supplying information, collected as a result of research from victims of immigration marriage fraud.
• To suggest new ideas and studies to Citizenship and Immigration Canada, in order to promote the prevention of immigration fraud.

Our current focus is on immigration marriage fraud. A growing, number of Canadians are being deceived by foreign nationals to obtain permanent residency status in Canada, through a marriage of convenience. After landing in Canada, the sponsored person leaves immediately from the airport or within a short time period. The victims who suffered from immigration marriage fraud have been traumatized in so many ways – emotionally, financially, mentally, professionally, and socially. On September 9,2007, approximately 125 victims and supporters of Immigration marriage fraud from different communities attended the meeting, which took place at Burnhamthorpe Community Centre, Mississauga. A prominent Immigration Lawyer Mr. Cecil Rotenberg addressed the meeting. We had a very successful meeting, and look forward to helping the victims of Immigration marriage fraud.

Our organization is collecting information from all the victims, and promise to seek justice.

Anyone who is a victim of immigration marriage fraud are strongly encouraged to contact our executive members, and register with Canadians Against Immigration Fraud for a small fee of $25.

We invite the public, to also get involved to put an end to this inhuman practice. With the support of victims, family, friends, community, and supporters, we can create an opportunity for change to improve the conditions for our country.
