Potential Canadian citizens aren’t being adequately checked for criminality or residency problems, which could lead to some people being granted citizenship when they shouldn’t be, according to a report from the Auditor General of Canada. The report looked at whether Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada detected and prevented fraud in adult citizenship applications. Overall, the audit found that the department was not adequately identifying fraud, and in some cases wasn’t receiving the information it needed to do so.
