Canada is a promising country for people looking to earn growth in career and personal space. Being a popular immigration destination, Canada attracts thousands of applications every year from immigration hopefuls around the world.

The most common reason for this is that the approach of applicants as many generally doesn’t follow the rules as strictly as they should be followed. Consequently, their final application often ends up as misrepresented and gets rejected. IRCC sometimes also put a ban on candidates for furnishing improper and false information for a long period of 5 years.

In the past few years, Canada Immigration authorities have undertaken many new reforms and rules for the mutual benefit of both immigrants and economy of Canada.
