The university has been made aware of several criminal scams that are targeting Canadian and international students.  You may receive a phone call, email, or text message from individuals claiming that they are from Canada Revenue Agency, Immigration Canada, or the police. They may use intimidating language to convince you to make a payment or share details about your identity. Do not transfer money to them or provide personal information about your passport, health card, or driver’s license.
