Default How do I report an illegal immigrant staying in Canada?

I'm just wondering how I can report an illegal immigrant who is currently working in Montreal illegally? He is a US citizen and moved out to Canada about 7 months ago (late May, early June). I know the 1st 6 months is legal, but after that you are considered illegal. Is there a way I can be anonymous when reporting this person? What are the chances that there will be action taken on him and this issue? He says that he is waiting for his paperwork, but as of now he is illegally here, does not have a registered car and is getting paid illegally. Also, is it true that it's a lot harder to become a citizen in Canada now? Thank you!

Why would you want to bring all this trouble down on this individual?
Why not just leave him alone?
Whats it to you?
Maybe if you fill us in on the rest of the story we might be a bit more sympathetic to your need to rain down bureaucratic hell on this guy.
From the info provided in your post i'd say its not your business.

what he is saying may be right. I used to have a work permit. Workpermits are issues for a limited period of time. It has to be renewed before it expires. All I had to do was to send the paperwork before the expiry date. Once the government receives the extension application before the due date, they consider the applicant legal until the a decision is made on his workpermit extension application.

example:
workpermit expires in June
I sent the application at the end of May
Canadian gov. made a decision around August.
This means I can work until August. It is legal.

So, there is a possibility that everything is legal.

Is he doing any criminal activity (other than overstaying a visa)?
If not, leave him alone.
There are more important things to worry about.

I agree and I bet it involves being 'scorned' on some level.

LusciousEyes, why don't you just live and let live? He may be legitmately in the process of getting things together regarding his papers and you may look foolish if you interfere in something that's not your business. There are much more serious issues these authorities should be spending their time on.

I'm an elementary school teacher here in California with a masters degree and my credentials. I really love it here with great pay and benefits but my fiance is French Canadian and wants me to move there with him. I don't really know French (took it in high school but forgot after not speaking for several years) and I am aware that the schooling system is different up there. When I do move there, am I going to have trouble finding a job or getting the Quebec Provence credentials to teach? Do I really have to learn French all over again? I really don't want to waste a year or two not working and instead having to go back to school to learn the language. I'm not worried about becoming a citizen since I know I will after we get married but I'm afraid that once I move, they may not assign me with credentials and all my hard work of schooling is going to go to waste. Can't I get credentials and teach at an English speaking school instead? Please help! I would really appreciate it. Thanks
bad girl !

How could you possibely be such a trouble maker? What a horrible thing you are thinking of doing. Your desire to remain anonomous should tell you something!!!! You want to rat the person out and not take any credit for it. What's up with that???
