Region of Peel – Investigators from the Airport Division Criminal Investigations Bureau have charged a woman with allegedly using a fraudulent Covid-19 document after arriving from an international flight at Toronto Pearson Airport.

On Monday, March 29, 2021, at approximately 4:25 p.m., police attended the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to assist. A CBSA border services officer conducting an inspection check of a woman’s entry documents allegedly included a negative Covid-19 document. The border services officer suspected the Covid-19 document to be fraudulent and subsequently had it review by Public Health. 

A 26-year-old woman from Brampton was arrested and charged for Utter Forge Document. She was released on a Form 9 Appearance Notice and is scheduled to attend the Ontario Court of Justice on May 17, 2021, in Brampton. 

Once released, she returned to the Public Health Agency of Canada for processing.
