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…

IAD Sponsorship Appeal – Settled & Allowed!

Following the refusal of their spousal sponsorship for criminality, a young couple retained our office to assist with their appeal to the Immigration Appeal Division. Our office assisted the couple in gathering evidence both of the husband’s rehabilitation and the genuine nature of their relationship. The evidence gathered was conclusive and compelling. Upon a review of that evidence, the Hearing’s Officer was willing to accept that there were sufficient humanitarian and compassionate considerations and recommended to the IAD that the appeal be allowed without a hearing.

Visitor Visa Issued After Previous Refusals!

A woman who wished to visit her mother in Canada contacted our office after having been refused for a visitor visa on three separate occasions. Her applications were refused for various reasons ranging from financial grounds, lack of family ties in her home country, and purposes of visit. The women’s mother was a permanent resident of Canada whom she had not seen in over nine years.

We assisted the young woman to re-submit a new visitor visa application for herself and for her youngest child. Our application contained extension submissions on family (re)unification as well as detailing the women’s established life and stable financial circumstances in her home country. Our submissions were accepted and passport requests for visa issuance were requested by immigration.

With the Department of Justice agreeing to the settle these matters after reviewing our legal arguments, this concludes the Federal Court process without the need for a hearing. This is fantastic news for our clients!

From Refusal to Successful Study Permit!

We were approached by a client who applied for extension of his work permit on his own and was refused. He was a participant of the Alberta special pilot project and without having a valid Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), an extension of his work permit could not have been granted. With our help, he managed to restore his status and change it to a study permit without having to leave Canada. He will be starting school in September!
