A B.C. woman accused of counselling foreign au pairs to lie to border agents about their reasons for coming to Canada has pleaded guilty to one charge under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.

Elizabeth “Lisa” Large entered the plea in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on Monday. She admitted to counselling or attempting to counsel misrepresentation. Three other charges against her will likely be stayed following sentencing.

Large was charged in May 2014 following a five-year investigation by the Canada Border Services Agency.

It is alleged that between April 2007 and April 2013 Large, doing business in Chilliwack as International Au Pair Canada, International Au Pair and International Homestays, arranged placements for foreign au pairs who did not have work permits.

She is accused of telling the au pairs to say they were tourists when entering Canada.
