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…

Successful LMO’s

It has been a successful week for the processing team at Bellissimo Law Group!  Following ongoing communication with Service Canada for over one year, we were able to secure a positive Live-In Caregiver Labour Market Opinion (LMO) for a kind lady who was in dire need of a live-in caregiver to care for her two elderly parents.  We are now in the process of preparing the work permit application for the foreign worker wherein we once again anticipate a positive outcome. Together with this good news, we are also celebrating a second positive LMO, and two approved overseas spousal sponsorship applications. Congratulations to both employers, and to the couples who will soon be reuniting in Canada!

Refugee Claim Approved! – Escape from Torture

A man has been determined to be a refugee by the Refugee Protection Division. Working with our client to obtain credible documentation regarding the plight of his family, we were able to establish that he would be at risk of detention and torture on return to his country of origin. Safe in Canada, he may now take steps to apply for his wife and children to be reunited with him here.

Couple Reunited At Last!

Husband and wife, separated for nearly 5 years while waiting for their spousal sponsorship to reunite them in Canada, find success at the Immigration Appeal Division. The couple, who originally filed their spousal sponsorship application without counsel, were refused with the Visa Officer determining that the marriage was not genuine and that the foreign national was criminally inadmissible to Canada.

Our office worked with the couple extensively to prepare them for giving testimony at their hearing. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Board Member provided oral reasons for allowing the appeal, citing the foreign national’s substantial efforts at rehabilitation. The couple are now awaiting final processing at the Visa Office, before being reunited in Canada.

Successful Residency Appeal

A man diagnosed with a terminal illness who did not meet the residency requirement as a permanent resident was recently successful in his residency appeal before the Immigration Appeal Division. We prepared extensive documentary disclosure for this client establishing the humanitarian and compassionate basis for his case. We also worked closely with the client and his family in order to prepare them for the hearing. Thanks to keen preparation and strong supporting evidence, our client’s appeal was allowed and he has been able to remain in Canada as a permanent resident.
