A Winnipeg man has been charged after border officials say he acted as an unauthorized immigration consultant.
Alfredo (Fred) Arrojado, 66, faces three charges under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act for misrepresenting himself in order to induce immigration in Manitoba.
The Canada Border Services Agency says the alleged offences took place between August 2007 and April 2016.
Arrojado is also said to have misrepresented himself before the Immigration Appeal Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board.
His first court appearance is November 27 in Winnipeg.
