Halifax businessman accused of bilking foreign workers pleads guilty to misrepresentation

Date

2017

Abstract

A Halifax businessman stood in court Tuesday to admit submitting false records to immigration authorities, a moment of vindication for the Filipino temporary workers whom he had allegedly underpaid.

The businessman offered his guilty plea to misrepresentation under provisions of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act for "false information regarding the employment" of Sta. Juana and at least 25 other workers listed on the federal indictment.
