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…

LMIA Application Approved After a Potential Refusal

We assisted a client with a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) application as they needed a specialized medical assistant to fill a position. They found that none of the candidates within Canada fit the job requirements. We submitted a detail report on all the applicants, with explanations as to why they did not fit the profile accordingly. The LMIA was heading towards a refusal by Service Canada as they stated not enough effort was made to hire a Canadian citizen. After doing some research, we had a second look at the resumes in question and decided that the employer was correct in regards to not offering a position to the Canadian applicants. These applicants had much higher expectations and all had higher level credentials than the position required. We argued that those applicants would not last on the job, as they were looking for something in their own specialization. In conclusion, the officer was convinced that the employer was right in not offering the position to those applicants. Therefore, we turned this situation from a potential refusal, into a positive LMIA decision. The employer is happy and we are pleased that we were able to reverse the first impulse of the officer to refuse the application. The satisfaction of a job well done!

A Successful Outcome Achieved For A Spousal Sponsorship Appeal

We were recently successful at challenging a Spousal Sponsorship refusal alleging that the marriage was not genuine and that it was entered into primarily for immigration purposes. The Applicant had lived in the United States without status for nearly a decade and immigration Canada suspected his motivation for marriage was to acquire permanent resident status in Canada. In challenging the legal validity of the decision, we provided comprehensive evidence documenting the genuine nature of the relationship. We also dedicated adequate resources to witness preparation which in conjunction with the documentary evidence persuaded the IAD that the marriage was genuine.

Preventing Imminent Removal

Bellissimo Law Group stopped the deportation at Federal Court of a person who was facing imminent removal by the Canada Border Services Agency but had her entire life savings on the line if removed. The decision is notable because stopping removal for economic harm is challenging.  Our team did well as did the Federal Court in preventing removal in these dire circumstances.

Grandfather of Four Granted Stay of Removal

A man with a criminal record stretching over 25 years was granted a stay of removal for a period of three years. Due to a pre-hearing conference between counsel, the hearing was able to conclude in under 30 minutes; relieving our client and his family members from the need for lengthy and emotional testimony. Our client, a father and grandfather to Canadian children, will be able to remain in Canada with his family while he demonstrates that he has rehabilitated his life.
