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…

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.

Certificate of Rehabilitation Granted Despite Inadmissibility Finding

We recently completed work on a matter where our client was unaware that he was inadmissible to Canada. During the process, Canada Immigration found the client to be inadmissible to Canada, preventing travel to Canada. Substantial evidence was collected and submissions made, first to support the client’s misunderstanding of the inadmissibility, and then the client’s rehabilitation, which was necessary to remove the permanent inadmissibility. We are pleased to inform that our client was granted a certificate of rehabilitation, removing the inadmissibility permanently, and allowing for travel to Canada.
