- Failure to disclose about your family members
- Declaring a forged job experience
- Engaging in a false marriage
- make it sure that they don’t need any social assistance from the government
Examples of non-material misrepresentations are:

- Giving constant and accurate information on all the forms except one
2) Canada Visa Rejection on the basis of medical reasons
Canadian Government rejects the applications that result in “too much demand” on Canada's healthcare system. It is in their policy. As per policy, the candidate who is submitting an application for Canadian immigration is obliged to undertake a medical examination certified by the Canadian medical officers. The application will be rejected under the subsequent circumstances:
- If he is suffering from severe diseases which may have an impact on the Canadian overall public's health.
- If it results in an extreme demand on the health care or social services which are given by the Canadian government.
3) Criminal Reasons
Criminal background checks are a part of the process. Applicants need to wait before they file an application. Canadian Government needs to make sure that the candidate who will be admitted to the country will not be a threat to the country’s overall well-being. A police verification certificate is necessary to be provided but it may not guarantee your criminal behavior. Therefore, the background checking is done at various levels by the Embassy. The authorities will confirm your background from each country where you resided for 6 months or more after 18 years of your age.
Examples of violations are:
- Drunk & Disorderly conduct
- Obstruction of Justice
- Possession of marijuana, cocaine, and other drugs
It doesn’t matter how little the offense is– there are situations where people have faced refusals even for traffic incidents or driving charges. So it depends upon how you have discloses it in your visa application. It is advisable to consult some expert advisors before filing the documents.
4) Missing a deadline
IRCC sets definite deadlines to submit diverse applications to speed up the immigration process. In case an applicant misses the deadline, then his application may be denied. So, it is important to know how and when to gather and submit the documents and application. Failing to meet deadlines shows irresponsible behavior and a lack of interest in regard to your PR application.
CIC may grant a few days' extension, but at the same time, it becomes very important to make clear the reasons behind extensions and provide supporting documents.
