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…

Study Permit Application Approved in Express Time!

A hopeful student who wished to commence her Master’s degree in Canada approached our office for assistance with her study permit application.  Although her proposed Master’s program was a natural progression of studies from her former Bachelor’s degree, it was completely unrelated to the field of her previous studies and the work she had completed over the past decade. We assisted her to submit an application for a study permit, making strong submissions that she was a genuine student, irrespective of her change in field of studies. Her study permit was recently approved within a one week period!

We were successful on a sponsorship application for a child that was not disclosed and therefore not examined at the time of his father’s application for immigration to Canada.  We made extensive submissions on humanitarian and compassionate grounds and the application was approved!

Detailed Submissions Grant Spousal Sponsorship Despite Criminal Inadmissibility Finding

We recently worked on a Spousal Sponsorship application for a family that had been living overseas for a number of years. We assisted them in presenting the sponsor’s re-settlement plan, together with the family’s settlement plan, as well as established the spousal relationship. In addition, the applicant was criminally inadmissible for a matter dating back quite some time that did not have a direct criminal equivalence in Canada. With careful and detailed submissions advocating for rehabilitation, the application was recently successful and the family members granted permanent residence to facilitate their move to Canada.

Misrepresentation Finding Rejected by Federal Court!

We assisted a person who was being sponsored to Canada under Common-Law Spouse Class. After the application was submitted, the applicant was charged and subsequently convicted of a criminal offence in Canada. The applicant was therefore facing a refusal due to criminal inadmissibility. We were pleased to learn that after our extensive submissions, IRCC granted status to the applicant under humanitarian and compassionate grounds!
