We discuss various myths about Canadian immigration law, including:
- Refugees get more financial help than pensioners.
- Foreign nationals immigrate and then bring their whole extended family over.
- If including your spouse or common-law partner on your permanent resident application is inconvenient or unhelpful to your immigration process then you can exclude them and later sponsor them.
- Volunteering isn’t work.
- If my kid is born in Canada then my H&C application is guaranteed to succeed.
