The Canadian government has warned Kenyans about fake job websites.
In a statement, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada said the information was false and the programs that had been referenced do not exist.
The IRCC said for accurate information on how to move to Canada, Kenyans should visit the country’s immigration website.
“Disinformation is circulating which suggests that special programs are welcoming Kenyan immigrants. This is false, and the immigration programs referenced do not exist. For accurate information on how to immigrate, visit http://Canada.ca/immigration,” IRCC said on Tuesday.
This comes a day after Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Alfred Mutua called upon Kenyans to apply for jobs in Canada.
Mutua said during his official visit to Canada, he held a meeting with the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship of Canada Sean Fraser.
He said they agreed on the various migration opportunity pathways for Kenyans to go work in Canada.
“We are in negotiations and we will be providing a comprehensive statement within the next few days with guidance and links agreed upon between the Kenyan and the Canadian government so that Kenyans can apply for migration or job visas,” Mutua said.
