Is it a crime to lie on a resume for stuff like education and experience? In Canada BC?
It's not a crime but hopefully you realize that many companies run background checks.

Not illegal, but doesn’t bode well long term if you’re lying already to a company and you’re not even hired
As mentioned companies these days call former employers , internet searches

Thanks for letting me know. But it has nothing to do with immigration . Just wanted to know if its legal or not to give a friend as a reference for a job in Canada BC?
You can submit your colleague, boss or friend as long as that friend has worked with you and won't misrepresent your relationship.
