Our Recent Immigration Success Stories

At BLG 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 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…

Family Reunited In Canada Despite Medical Inadmissibility Finding

Our clients sponsored their family members over 8 years ago. The application was in limbo for a number of years and then delayed further when one of the Applicants was found to likely be medically inadmissible because of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). The Applicant was determined to ultimately cause an excessive demand on the medical services in Canada. Following close examination of the Applicant’s particular circumstances of CKD, and working with medical specialists, we were able to secure appropriate medical evidence and advocate on the family’s behalf to demonstrate to the Medical and Visa Officer that the Applicant would not cause an excessive demand on medical services in Canada. The family’s application has been approved and they have all been reunited in Canada.

Visitor Visa Application Approved After Refusal

A client from the Philippines approached us to handle his visitor visa application after it was refused back in 2016 due to various reasons. We started the application by making an Access to Information request for the refused file from Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). We did extensive research on our client’s background, his relatives in Canada and his country of origin. Our submission was comprehensive and addressed the previous issues in his refused application in a clear format. We submitted the application and within a couple of weeks, our client received the visitor visa. Both himself and his family were overjoyed, as he now will be able to visit his children and sister in Canada.

Parental Sponsorship Application Approved Despite Medical Inadmissibility Finding

We worked on and recently had a successful conclusion of a parental sponsorship application that had taken nearly 10 years. The matter was under review for medical admissibility for renal failure – End Stage Renal Disease. Following careful medical evidence review, medical research and consultation with professionals, we discovered that the information relied by the Department in concluding that the Applicant would cause an excessive demand in Canada was incorrect. We submitted the correct information, carefully set out the need for dialysis or a transplant to be remote given the Applicant’s particular circumstances, and applied the Kidney Failure Risk equation. Following all of this, the application was approved, and we are pleased to inform that the family will be reunited in Canada after waiting nearly a decade.
