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…

Humanitarian & Compassionate arguments in a Parental Sponsorship refusal case lead to successful PR!

Our client sought our help following the refusal of his application to Sponsor his Parents for Permanent Residence (PR), after an Officer determined that he failed to meet the minimum necessary income requirement. In support of his matter and in preparation for the hearing, we prepared a comprehensive documentary disclosure and conducted extensive client interviews.

On the date of the hearing, after testimony from our client, the Minister agreed to a joint recommendation to allow the appeal on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. The Member agreed, rendering a decision on the spot to allow the appeal. We are very pleased that we were able to assist our client in obtaining permanent resident status for his parents in Canada!

Using Temporary Foreign Worker Programs (TFWP) to tackle Labour Shortage in Canada

Our office is currently retained to assist a Canadian employer bring foreign workers to deal with the ongoing labour shortage in the Canadian mining industry. Upon receiving a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), we continued working closely with the employer and foreign workers in preparing their work permit applications.

Within just three weeks, the work permit applications for two workers have already been approved. The employer is very pleased that the foreign workers can start working right away, just in time for the busier months! We are thrilled about the timely approval and are continuing to work diligently to help the employer bring more foreign workers to Canada.

Inadmissibility due to Misrepresentation & Criminality successfully removed!

Our client had a minor, single conviction that dated well over a decade and was unable to travel to Canada to visit family as his conviction rendered him criminally inadmissible to Canada. We assisted him with a Criminal Rehabilitation application made to an overseas Embassy. In addition to the individual’s criminal inadmissibility, there were also circumstances of a failure to disclose the criminal background on previous applications, leading to various findings of misrepresentation, which too were disclosed within the application. Following very lengthy processing and our consistent follow ups with the Embassy, our client finally received a decision after three years. We were pleased to learn that the application was recently, and finally, approved, and the prior misrepresentations overcome. Additionally, our client’s criminal inadmissibility has been permanently removed and he is now free to seek entry to Canada!

Successful Challenge of a PR Refusal

When our client first came to us, she wanted to challenge the refusal of her application for permanent residence on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds to the Federal Court of Canada. Following Leave being granted, the Judicial Review hearing was scheduled. We reviewed recent case law and prepared the Applicant’s Further Memorandum. Upon filing, we received notice from the Department of Justice on behalf of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada that they wanted to settle the matter without proceeding to the hearing. Our client was thrilled and agreed. As a result, our client’s application was sent back for redetermination, and she will be given the opportunity to provide new documents and legal submissions for a new Officer to review. We wish our client the best and hope she is able to continue living in Canada with her loved ones.
