Identifying Diploma Mills & Avoiding Fraudulent Documents
Thousands of hardworking professionals come to Canada every year for licensure or certification, and a handful will attempt to do so with degrees issued by so-called diploma mills or by using documents which are fraudulent. By instituting and enforcing rigorous documentation policies, licensing and regulatory bodies can select qualified candidates, minimize fraud and protect the integrity of the screening process. Documents should be received directly from verified academic institutions or other recognized organizations and authenticated by authorized officials. All translated documents must be accompanied by sealed copies of official academic records.
