Four people in British Columbia have been arrested for immigration misrepresentation and tax evasion according to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
The arrests were made in connection to the New Can Consultants and Wellong International Investments immigration fraud case.
According to the CBSA, New Can Consultants employees provided, “false addresses and phone numbers to clients so they could maintain the appearance of residency in Canada while living outside the country.”
The CBSA crackdown has led to nearly half of the company’s 1,600 clients losing their permanent residency or citizenship status.
Zhen Wen “Vicky” Ye was sentenced to pay $94,532 and received a conditional sentence of two years less a day. Her charges stem from providing unlicensed immigration services over five years to 265 clients.
Tian “Gary” Chen and Xiao Ben “Ben” Chu were arrested last month.
