  Hi,
Here is a hypothetical question that i hope someone can answer.
Lets say i had been an illegal immigrant in another country (not Canada)for over 10 years and have now been living back home for the past couple of years, what would my chances be of being a Provisional Nominee if i was panning on buying a lodge style business outright?
Hope someone can take this on!

John Doe,

One thing I can tell you for sure: Your illegal status in another country, no matter how long, would not affect your Canadian PR application.

It would only matter IF you entered a country illegally AND at the time of filing your application from that specific country you are still out of legal status, which is not your case.

I am still out of status in the US as we speak, and I am really confident that my PR application will be approved.

Other forum users may confirm.

Good Luck!

Thanks Uniden,
What i was most worried about was confessing about where i had been working for 10 years since the majority of work i did was under an assumed name and ss# I just thought there would be lots of questions especially if my work references had a different name on it. I paid all my taxes etc, and even took on the student loan from the name i was
using.

John Doe,

Well, ..the fact that being illegally in a country doesn´t necessarily have a negative influence on your application doesn´t imply that you can show proof of employment or reference letters for a fictitious person. There is no way, other than an unlawful way, to prove that that person was indeed YOU. I am not sure that you can do that, but I would say, intuitively, that it is not possible. Can you imagine how many people could get credit for work experience, studies, etc., just by showing documents belonging to another person (fictitious or not)?!? It would definitely open the doors for do-it-yourself, cheap fraud.

I am not giving you any legal advice, let other more experienced users of this forum give their 2 cents on this issue.

Good Luck!

John Doe,

Police certificates should not be a problem, as they only relate to matching fingerprints against the arrests database..

..but your ultimate concern should rather be whether you can gather the amount of points needed to get your application approved if you can´t count on your points for employment experience. I wish you can. Find a long-lost relative of yours in Canada, get a PhD... Whatever helps..

Best luck to you, my friend!
