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…

Family Invited to Finalize PR Application Despite Medical Inadmissibility Finding

A family applied for permanent residence in 2014 and IRCC was of the opinion that their youngest child, who is on the autism spectrum, would cause a strain on Canada’s social services. IRCC specifically focused on the cost of the child’s education, required therapies and availability of relief care in Canada. After hiring our firm for assistance, a detailed plan was presented to IRCC, focusing on the child’s individualized circumstances, including medical and non-medical factors, providing details of how the child’s education would be delivered in Canada together with the therapy, without leading to causing an excessive demand in Canada. We are pleased to report that following our extensive submissions, the family has been invited to finalize their permanent residence application!

Couple Reunited After Years in Limbo

A spousal sponsorship appeal was recently allowed for a deserving couple separated for far too long. After her application to sponsor her husband to Canada was refused, the sponsor retained our office to initiate an appeal. We worked with the sponsor and applicant to provide strong evidence that their relationship is genuine and was not entered into primarily for immigration benefit. After the sponsor testified at her hearing, the Minister agreed that the evidence was irrefutable and consented to allowing the appeal. The Member also agreed, and the appeal was allowed. This is the best possible result for this couple who will soon be together in Canada.

Finding of Medical Inadmissibility Overturned on Appeal

This parental sponsorship had been refused based on a finding that the sponsor’s mother had a heart condition which would cause an excessive demand on Canadian health services. The sponsor retained our office to appeal this decision. In preparing for the appeal, we worked closely with the sponsor and medical professionals to both contest the Medical Officer’s diagnosis and to challenge the legal basis of the finding. Extensive medical evidence was filed and the sponsor was prepared to provide oral testimony at her hearing. After providing detailed legal submissions, the Member at the Immigration Appeal Division agreed that the decision was legally incorrect. The appeal was allowed and the application was returned to the Visa Office for final processing. We are delighted that this mother and daughter will soon be reunited in Canada after a long wait.

Request for Early Resolution Granted – Minister Agrees that Decision Made in Error

Our office was recently successful in filing an application for Early Resolution to the Immigration Appeal Division. This spousal sponsorship application was refused based on criminality. Upon receiving the appeal record, our office noted a legal error in the Visa Officer’s determination. We immediately filed an application for Early Resolution, which was granted after the Minister agreed with our argument and submissions. Thankfully, this couple will not have to endure the lengthy wait times for a full appeal hearing, allowing them to be reunited in Canada much more quickly.
