IRCC is criticized for not curbing unethical immigration consultants

Large numbers of immigration applications are submitted overseas by unauthorized representatives. In 2019, the government authorized a penalty system for violations in immigration and citizenship applications. However, fines have yet to be imposed as the system is not in force. Delays in implementing the system are partly due to the pandemic, which is expected to be in place by winter 2025. Criticisms have been raised about the delay and the inability to monitor consultants practicing outside the country. The situation has led to increased malpractice and fraud, with many applicants falling victim to scams. The lack of enforcement and oversight has been heavily criticized, with calls for immediate action to rectify the situation.
