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…

Young Professional Granted PR Under the Express Entry System

Our office was approached by a young professional to manage her permanent residence application under the Express Entry system. We worked diligently to complete and submit her permanent residence application pursuant to the Express Entry category – Canadian Experience Class within the deadline provided to our client by Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Only two months after submission, we received a request for original passport for IRCC to place her permanent resident visa inside. Her original passport was submitted to IRCC and we expect our client to get landed in the near future.

Couple Reunites in Canada After Subsequent Refusals/Removal Order

After a removal from Canada, followed by a refusal of a sponsorship application, we were recently successful in securing permanent residence for a spouse of a Canadian citizen under the Overseas Spousal Sponsorship application which was supported by a comprehensive application for Authorization to Return to Canada (ARC), that clearly set out the compelling reasons that this individual should be allowed to return to Canada to reunite with her spouse. Prior to hiring legal representation, the couple had experienced many years of separation. We are pleased that we were able to quickly assist and have the couple reunite in Canada!

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.
