Therefore, the officers would need to contact the applicants and / or the employers directly. Thereafter, the officers would need to contact:
- Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) Operational Management and Coordination
- Program Integrity Division and,
- Immigration Branch, Economic Immigration Policy and Programs Division
Doing so would enable National Headquarters to identify and address any program integrity issues.
While they contact these departments, officers would need to include the following details in their e-mails to these departments.
- The immigration file number (issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC))
- The system file number (issued by Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC))
- The name of the applicant
