Immigrants say Minto Roy continues to sell false hope of high-paying jobs
BY KATHY TOMLINSON — A Vancouver businessman who runs a career management agency is being accused of promising to help people get well-paid jobs, taking their money and then not delivering, despite an investigation by the federal Competition Bureau.
"He is selling you the hope that you will be finding the job that you are expected or the job that you are always wishing to have," said client Andres Cuellar. "But in the end, he didn't provide anything like that."
Minto Roy owns and operates Premier Career Management Group (PCMG) in downtown Vancouver, a company he started in October 2004. One of the ways PCMG recruits clients is by contacting job seekers who put their resumés on job sites like Monster.ca. Many of them are new immigrants with little money. As well, they are often unemployed and have no job contacts in Canada.
