$2,250 US will get you Quick Visa to Canada

RCMP investigates immigration website

 

The RCMP has launched an investigation into a website guaranteeing immigrants easy access to Canada and advising them to use false pretexts in order to take advantage of the countrys free health care and social programs.
On its website, which was taken offline on Thursday, Quick Visa Canada offered clients “a cheap, quick and effective way to come to Canada.”
For $2,250 US, the company said, it would help potential immigrants come to Canada as tourists and then assist them in filing a claim for refugee status.
“We will provide you with a listing of different motives so that you can choose the one that best suits you,” the companys website said.
“The motives that we will present to you are very easy to explain to the immigration officials. For example many of our clients choose the type of motives in which they claim that there were part of an organization (anti abortion, human rights, Gay or Lesbian movement, etc, etc) back in their home country and that some people were against that movement.”
Organizations that provide assistance to immigrants and refugees were outraged by the website’s claims.
