The Canadian Government has warned immigrants that they should be wary of people with fake promises of immigration successes, as no one "can guarantee that" immigration application will be fast tracked.
It added that the approval of applications can only be done by a Canadian migration officer, and that only that official determines whether or not "you can come to Canada".
This warning was disclosed in a statement by the Office of the High Commission of Canada to Nigeria titled, ‘A message from the Government of Canada’.
It states, “Canadian Embassies, High Commissions, Consulates, Consulates-General or Honorary Consulates do not accept refugee applications directly from people.
“Canada works with the United Nations Refugee Agency, other designated referral organizations and private sponsors to identify individuals in need of resettlement, and who are outside their home country.
“You cannot apply directly for resettlement. You must be referred to Canada by a designated referral organization or a private sponsor.
“Don’t be fooled by rumours or false information online.
“No one can guarantee that your immigration application will be fast-tracked or approved. Only a Canadian migration officer can decide if you can come to Canada.
“All the information you need to apply to visit or immigrate to Canada is available free on the official Government of Canada website.”
Recall that AllNews had reported that the Canadian Government was set to welcome 1.2 million immigrants from the year 2021 to 2023 to make up for a shortfall in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Canadian Government announced that for the period of 2021, it would be accepting 401,000 new permanent residents, 411,000 in 2022, and 421,000 in 2023.
