A CBSA officer conducting an inspection check of a woman’s entry documents allegedly came across a negative COVID-19 document.

A 26-year-old woman from Brampton was arrested and charged for ‘utter forge document.’ She was released on an appearance notice and is scheduled to attend the Ontario Court of Justice on May 17 in Brampton.
Once released, she returned to the Public Health Agency of Canada for processing.
