Woman Pleads Guilty for Acting as Unauthorized Immigration Consultant in Fort McMurray

A Fort McMurray woman is pleading guilty for acting as an unauthorized immigration consultant in the Wood Buffalo area.

During a court appearance Wednesday, Charie Santos entered a guilty plea for allegedly assisting with permanent residence applications and filing Labour Market Impact Assessments for individuals and businesses.

Back in January, the Canada Border Services Agency charged her under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.

CBSA believe between June 30, 2011 and January 31, 2014, there were allegedly 11 individuals and nine business owners who were affected by Santos’ consulting services.

Santos faces a two-year jail sentence and a maximum $100, 000 fine. She will be sentenced in a Fort McMurray courtroom on November 30.
