Our Recent Immigration Success Stories

At Bellissimo Immigration Law Group PC, 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 that 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…

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.

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.
