A 57-year-old man is facing charges after allegedly attempting to use a fraudulent COVID-19 document at Pearson Airport in Mississauga. 

Peel police say that around 5:00 pm on April 20, 2021, officers were called to assist the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) with a situation involving a document believed to be fake.

Police say a subsequent review of the document by a Public Health Agency of Canada officer revealed that the document could be fraudulent. 

A Whitby man was arrested and charged with forging a document. He was released and is scheduled to appear in court on July 5, 2021. 

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

Anyone with information regarding this matter is asked to contact the Airport Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at 905-453-3311, ext. 3120.
