Misinformation on migration to Canada

Beware of false promises regarding Canadian visa lottery programs circulating online! Don’t fall for online scams; these ads are designed to deceive you.

UNHCR is NOT involved in any visa/immigration programs for any country, including those for Canada.

For accurate information, check the Canadian government’s official website here: (https://www.canada.ca/en/services/immigration-citizenship.html)

Please remember if someone is helping you with your Canadian visa application, they must be declared. For more information about Canadian Immigration representatives, please click here.
