Our Recent Immigration Success Stories

At Bellissimo Immigration Law Group PC, we are privileged to work on behalf of many wonderful people, companies and associations. We represent immigration applicants from far outside Canada, from the time they step foot into the country’s airport waiting rooms all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada.

Our immigration clients often tell us after their case is concluded that it would have helped to know of similar stories that are real and not just what you hear on the street. So every month, we post a few stories to celebrate our immigration success stories and offer some comfort to those who will soon embark on a similar journey…

Overcoming Medical Inadmissibility: A Triumph in Immigration

A client diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease since childhood faced refusal of their permanent residence application because the anticipated cost during the period under consideration by Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC) was up to $535,000. IRCC was concerned that the client would need renal treatment with dialysis and/or a kidney transplant. IRCC’s concerns in this instance were well-founded as the client had advanced to kidney failure, requiring both short-term dialysis and a transplant. Following months of planning and consultations with the client, medical specialists, and Canadian provincial authorities, a Mitigation Plan was developed, placing the client under the threshold in IRCC’s period under consideration. Following examination of the plan, we are pleased to report that the client was downgraded from an M5 applicant to an M3 applicant, and the medical admissibility assessment was passed. The clients now look forward to a long and prosperous future here in Canada

Successful PR Reassessment Following a Previous Rejection

Our client sought the assistance of our firm following the rejection of his application for Permanent Residence (PR) under the Federal Skilled Worker class, which was denied by an IRCC officer on the basis that his job duties did not align with the National Occupation Classification (NOC) code stated in his application. Our team embarked on the task of challenging this decision in the Federal Court, with the objective of having the PR application reassessed.

Through meticulous preparation and presentation of compelling legal arguments, our legal team effectively demonstrated that the Officer’s decision was unfair and unreasonable, and our client indeed fulfilled the criteria to be deemed a skilled worker at the time of his PR application. Securing leave from the court was a significant milestone, paving the way for us to represent our client in his Judicial Review hearing. During this process, our team skillfully articulated well-researched legal arguments, resulting in the application being sent back for redetermination.

Subsequently, our firm was retained to aid in the submission of new materials to be included with the application before it was reconsidered. After submitting the new materials for consideration, we were delighted to receive news of our client’s application being approved. The recent confirmation of our client and his family’s arrival in Canada marks the culmination of their PR journey. We take great satisfaction in knowing that our assistance has enabled them to embark on this new chapter in their lives. We extend our heartfelt congratulations and best wishes to our client and his family as they begin their journey in Canada!

Successful Appeal: Retaining Permanent Resident Status in Canada

We have recently been successful in the appeal against the removal order issued by the Immigration Division for misrepresentation. The Immigration Division determined that our client had misrepresented his marital status at the time of his landing in Canada (i.e., failed to inform the CBSA that his relationship with his spouse fell apart before his arrival in Canada). However, we were able to present evidence that, in fact, our client’s marriage at the time of landing was intact and ongoing, and it was only after the couple resided together in Canada for a period of time that their relationship broke down. Not only did we vigorously argue that our client did not misrepresent his marital status when he became a permanent resident of Canada, but we also sought relief on humanitarian and compassionate grounds should the Member still determine that our client had misrepresented. We were extremely happy to learn that the appeal was allowed on both grounds: the IAD determined that our client did not misrepresent his marital status at the time of landing, and that in any case, there were sufficient humanitarian and compassionate considerations to grant the appeal. We are very excited that our client was able to retain his permanent resident status in Canada and continue his life here.

Successful Urgent OINP Application

Our client approached us five days after receiving an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP) Employer Job Offer: Foreign Worker stream. With an application deadline looming within 14 calendar days from the date of the ITA, time was of the essence.

Our legal team immediately contacted the client and provided a comprehensive checklist of required documents to proceed with the application. This included coordinating closely with the client’s employer to ensure all employer-related forms and documentation were accurately completed and submitted in a timely manner.

Despite the tight timeline, we worked efficiently with our client and the employer to compile and submit the application within the stipulated timeframe. Our meticulous attention to detail and proactive approach paid off when our client’s application was approved without any request for additional documentation. We are delighted that we were able to assist our client in achieving such a great result and wish them all the best.
