Immigration Canada Rejects 1,700 Fake Marriage Applicants

Immigration Canada officers rejected 1,700 spousal applications last year considering them to be marriages of convenience to enter the country, a new Access to Information report shows.

The number of refusals of spousal applications for the marriage of convenience remains the same as in 2017 said the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) data obtained by Lexbase, an immigration newsletter authored by Vancouver lawyer Richard Kurland.

While the number of spousal sponsorship applications received by IRCC has increased by 32 percent over the last 10 years, have seen a decrease in the number of the marriage of convenience investigations since the probationary period was removed in April 2017, said the internal documents.
