Immigration Act Charges

Many immigrants to Canada are aware that a violation of the Immigration and Refuge Protection Act can result in deportation. Some may be unaware, however, that certain breaches of this Act can also result in criminal charges. An individual who provides false information in his or her application for citizenship or permanent resident status, for example, could be tried, convicted and serve time in jail in Canada and then possibly face deportation.

At Howard C. Cohen & Associates, we defend clients who are facing criminal charges under the Immigration Act. Our Toronto lawyers work diligently to minimize the impact of immigration-related criminal charges on our clients' immigration status and protect their right to re-enter Canada in the future.
