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…

Student Approved for Study Permit After Two Refusals

After being refused twice for previous study permit applications, we were recently successful in securing a study permit for a student passionate about learning and gaining international experience in Canada. A comprehensive study plan was submitted with extensive documentation to alleviate the concerns outlined by the visa officers in his two previous refusal letters. Furthermore, we worked with the student to provide strong evidence that he is a bona fide student based on his language ability, proposed course of study, and ties to his home country. We are pleased that we were able to quickly facilitate the student’s opportunity to learn in Canada!

Successful Outcome at the Refugee Protection Division!

Our office assisted a client from south Asia seeking refugee protection in Canada. The client initially arrived in Canada and claimed refugee protection several years ago. This case presented some difficulty, as the events forming the basis of the claim were not recent and the client had to demonstrate that there would be present risk were he to be returned to his country of nationality today. We extensively examined the client’s claim and collected ample information to show that the situation in the client’s country of nationality had not improved for individuals like our client and, if he were returned to that country, he would likely be at risk. As a result, the RPD determined that our client is a Convention Refugee. He will now be able to apply for permanent residence in Canada for both himself and his family.
