Honesty is the best policy?

Here's a very interesting story wherein you may really say that honesty is the best policy.

A permanent resident in Canada was able to get a job offer for two of her relatives in the Philippines. One is a dental assistant and the other is a school principal. A Labor Market opinion for the position, Kitchen Helper, was properly secured from HRSDC and was sent to the Philippines.

The school principal sent the application first and on his application form he indicated that he is working as a school principal, supported with the certification from the school. He got his work permit successfully.

The dental assistant, on the other hand, made it appear that he is working as kitchen helper and submitted a certificate from a local catering services. His application was refused on the basis that the visa officer doubts that the applicant will not respect the condition of his stay in Canada if given a work permit.

Honesty is the best policy, eh?
