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…

Second Stay of Removal for Father

A permanent resident of Canada received a second stay of removal before the Immigration Appeal Board after committing several further criminal offences. Although one of the conditions of his first stay of removal was that he commit no further criminal acts, our extensive pre-hearing negotiations resulted in a brief hearing and our proposed conditions being accepted by the Board.

Our client will now have a further two years with his wife, child and extended family; plenty of time to prove that he is committed to his rehabilitation and will make a positive contribution to Canada.

Unfairly Refused Skilled Worker Application finally Rectified

Our client’s skilled worker application was refused July 31, 2008 for language reasons. We found that the officer did not follow the Regulations and so we challenged the officer’s decision at Federal Court and negotiated a settlement to have the application sent back for reconsideration and the refusal overturned. Supplementary reconsideration submissions were done October 2009 and were recently approved.

The initial application which was submitted in 2003 was finally approved much to the satisfaction of our client and staff.

Successful Entry of Permanent and Temporary Residents

Although this section of our website usually focuses upon our high profile or more complex success stories – medical, criminality, last minute work permits, refugee cases, Federal Court, Immigration Appeal Division etc. we felt it was time to highlight the many permanent and temporary residents our Corporate team help everyday to obtain their status.

In particular, to acknowledge our hard working Corporate team that assists with Citizenship, Business Cases, Work Permits, Arranged Employment Opinions, Labour Market Opinions and successfully navigating the new waters of Skilled Worker Applications every day. Although you do not receive the spot light like our other cases we remembered – hats off to you all!

Removal Order Cancelled

A young mother who had been issued a removal order after being found criminally inadmissible to Canada was successful before the Immigration Appeal Division. Although the client only retained our office’s assistance a week before her hearing, we were able to quickly gather evidence and conduct preparation sessions in advance of the hearing.

Her children and extended family may now rest easy, knowing that she is no longer under a removal order.
