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…

Express Entry Canadian Experience Class Application Approved in 3 Months

We recently assisted a young professional to apply for permanent residence who had acquired multiple periods of part-time skilled work with various employers in Canada, as well as periods of non-qualifying self-employment while on a post graduate work permit. Our office worked to ensure that his qualifying periods of part-time work experience and variable hours of work were clearly set out in our submissions and the supporting documentation, in order to demonstrate that he met the one-year work experience requirements of the Canadian Experience Class. His application was processed smoothly and was recently approved, in just three months after submission.

Couple United in Canada Permanently After Many Years of Uncertainty

We were successful on a matter that dates back to 2011, that began with a Record Suspension for the applicant, then sponsorship by the spouse of the applicant, and then finally an Authorization to return to Canada for previous removal from Canada. The couple are now united in Canada permanently after many years of being in limbo.

Refusal and Five-Year Ban From Canada Overturned; Family’s PR Application Approved

We succeeded in settling a Federal Court case and overturning the refusal of a Federal Skilled Worker application for permanent residence on grounds of misrepresentation. The Visa Office concluded, after conducting on-site verifications, that the applicant had misrepresented his work experience. As a result, the application was refused and the applicant and his family were deemed inadmissible to Canada for five years.

The case was settled soon after our initial arguments were filed, and the application was sent back to the visa office for redetermination. After assisting our client in updating his application, he recently was informed that his application had been approved. He and his family will soon obtain their permanent residence visas and be able to come to Canada for the first time.

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.
