Misrepresentation, and the Right to Be Heard
The Canadian government can revoke the citizenship of immigrants who are found to have misrepresented themselves during the course of their application for permanent residency and citizenship - even years after citizenship has been granted. In fact, the Trudeau government has been revoking citizenship of immigrants who has misrepresented at a great rate than the previous Conservative government. Currently, there is no proper appeal process for immigrants who are revoked under these circumstance. Civil liberty groups are urging the Liberal government to provide an appeal process in these cases, saying that by not doing so is a violation of the fundamental right to be heard (Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms S11.d.). This highlights the importance of not committing any form of misrepresentation in the course of an individuals application for entry into Canada.
