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…

Refugee Claim Accepted from the Bench

Our client retained us for assistance with making a refugee claim. We helped him prepare the forms, the narrative, and the documents, all of which were submitted to the Immigration and Refugee Board to start his claim. While waiting for the hearing date, we helped the client gather additional documents to support his claim and submitted an extensive documentation package to the Board. We also had several preparation sessions with the client to prepare him to testify before the Board.

On the hearing date, our client gave his testimony and less than two hours into the hearing, the Board Member stated that he was accepting our client’s refugee claim. The client was declared a Convention Refugee on the spot and will soon be able to become a Permanent Resident of Canada.

TRVs Granted After Success at the Federal Court!

Our clients retained us following the refusal of their temporary resident visa (TRV) applications. Upon review of the refusal letter, we suggested that our clients challenge the Decision to the Federal Court of Canada, as the Decision appeared unreasonable.  

We crafted our legal arguments and filed the materials with the Court. Shortly thereafter, we received a letter from the Department of Justice on behalf of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) offering a settlement to our clients.  

Our clients’ TRV applications were remitted back to a new immigration officer for redetermination which were ultimately approved, and our clients were issued TRVs. We are thrilled with this result and wish our clients the best!

Super Visa Approved Within 2 Weeks Despite Previous Refusal

Prior to retaining our office, our client’s son had submitted a super visa application on her behalf but failed to disclose her multiple refusals for US visas. A year into the process, she received a Procedural Fairness Letter (“PFL”) alleging that she had misrepresented on her application. Despite their honest response with updated forms, the application was refused. Juggling two jobs and parenting two young children, the son wished his mother to come to Canada as soon as possible to assist with family and household responsibilities.

Recognizing the complexity of the situation, our office was retained for re-applying. We prepared the application diligently: after a thorough review of all her previous applications, ATIP results, and correspondences with IRCC, we ensured every mandatory document was provided, forms were accurately completed with all immigration history fully disclosed, and a detailed legal submission was crafted to bolster the application. With processing times averaging nearly 300 days, this application was approved in less than 2 weeks! We are very delighted with the result given the effort and hard work both our client and our office had put into the application. We wish our client and her family all the best!

Successfully Overcoming Medical Inadmissibility Due To Kidney Condition

We recently assisted a hard working family, living in Canada, on their permanent residence application. They came to us because IRCC was concerned that our client’s existing kidney condition complicated by an autoimmune disease would cause an excessive demand in Canada in the coming five years. We worked hard over a number of months to put together a plan of care for our client, whose condition gradually changed, requiring dialysis. We consulted with the client’s specialist doctors and coordinators as well as the provincial authorities to put a comprehensive plan of care in place, and balanced with the family’s contributions in Canada. We are very pleased to share that the plan was carefully considered by IRCC and our client was found medically admissible. We wish our clients the best of luck as they continue their life here in Canada!
