Toronto: The federal government is bringing in new rules to try to protect international students from fraud.
Immigration Minister Marc Miller announced new rules aimed at protecting international students from fraud.
He said the new rules are stemming from an investigation into a scheme that dates back to 2017, that saw immigration agents issue fake acceptance letters to get international students into Canada.
Marc Miller said schools that accept international students will have to confirm every applicant’s letter of acceptance with the Immigration Department as of December 1st.
He also said that he is keeping an eye on schools himself. — The Canadian Press
