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…

Out of Status Caregiver Issued Work Permit and Permanent Residence Finalized

A caregiver who had completed two years under the former live-in caregiver program submitted her permanent residence application. Unfortunately, while waiting for her permanent residence application to be finalized, she inadvertently lost her temporary resident status in Canada. Canadian immigration advised the caregiver that without temporary resident status, her application for permanent residence would be refused.

She approached our office for assistance regarding her situation. Although she had been out of status for over two years, with our extensive submissions, the caregiver was issued a new work permit and her permanent residence application continues to be processed. Her permanent residence application is now in the final stages and we anticipate she will receive her confirmation of permanent residence shortly.

With extensive documentation filed to explain the Applicant’s complicated past and corroborate the genuine nature of this relationship, the Minister consented to allowing the appeal. We could not be happier for this couple and their two young daughters!
