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…

A Case of Permanent Residence

We recently were able to procure a permanent residence visa under the Federal Skilled Worker category for a client who was affected by the change of procedures in November 2008, when the Ministerial instructions came into effect. In this case, additional submissions were required to ensure that our client was being processed according to the right stream.

Fortunately, our submissions were successful and our client is now a happy permanent resident!

Refugee Success

A woman who fled to Canada after suffering years of domestic violence, was granted the status of a Convention Refugee today. After genuine and credible testimony as to her fear of return and the practical ability to seek state protection for a woman in a ‘visiting relationship,’ the Board Member accepted that her life would be at risk should she return to her country.

Our client will soon be applying for permanent residence, and will finally be reunited with the  children that she was forced to leave behind.

Medical Inadmissibilty

We were recently successful in assisting our clients’ application for permanent residence. One of the applicants had a condition that would render s/he medically inadmissible.  It was initially determined by Citizenship and Immigration Canada that the cost of medication would be too high and too great of a demand on the Canadian healthcare system. We challenged this finding through our specialized medical legal submissions, and we were able to convince the Minister that the family would not cause any such excessive demand based on their particular circumstances.

Refugee Fleeing Religious Persecution

After having his father kidnapped and escaping a kidnapping himself, our client made it to Canada to seek protection as a refugee. With substantial pre-hearing preparation, our client was ready to tell his story to the Immigration and Refugee Board.  The Board accepted that our client was a member of a minority religion who had, personally, suffered persecution because of his religion.
