Canada to ramp up verification of student admissions to curb immigration fraud

Canada will step up the verification of university acceptance letters as it seeks to prevent immigration by fraudsters who target international students, Immigration Minister Marc Miller said on Friday.

Canada is a popular destination for international students since it is relatively easy to obtain a work permit, but the student immigration system is rife with fraud and "perverse incentives," Miller told reporters in Brampton, Ontario.

Earlier this year, the issue of fraudulent admission letters came to the forefront when dozens of foreign students received deportation letters alleging the use of forged documents to enter Canada.
