In Committee from the House of Commons - Citizenship & Immigration


Citizenship and Immigration (November 1, 2010)

Immigration Minister Jason Kenney discussed Bill C-35, which would crack down on crooked immigration consultants. The legislation would make it a crime for unauthorized individuals to provide immigration advice for a fee. The proposed amendments would also require that all advice supplied for a fee be provided by an authorized immigration representative.
Representatives from the legal profession had testified in the first part of the meeting. MPs heard from Stéphane Handfield, a lawyer who was appearing as an individual; Tamra L. Thomson, Chantal Arsenault and Michael A. Greene, representatives from the Canadian Bar Association; and Laurie Pawlitza and Malcolm Heins, representatives from the Law Society of Upper Canada.
