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…

Federal Court Gave Failed Refugee a Second Chance

he Federal Court agreed with our assessment that the Refugee Protection Division incorrectly assessed a Tamil woman’s fear of return to Sri Lanka. Our client, who had withdrawn her claim for asylum in the USA, was deemed not to truly fear return; this decision was made while ignoring our client’s desire to be reunited with her family in Canada.

She will now have the opportunity to present her claim for refugee protection again, and while awaiting her new hearing she is able to remain with her family in Canada

A Stay of Removal for Criminal Inadmissibility

A young man came to our office with his removal order appeal scheduled for only days later. Charged with several crimes, stemming from his involvement with a gang, our office worked over time to interview and prepare our client, his family members and his employer for the hearing. Having removal stayed, where it is based on multiple criminal charges and alleged gang involvement, is not a simple matter. At the close of the first hearing, the Board was still not convinced that our client had taken steps to turn his life around and be a good and supportive father to his children. Our office engaged in post-hearing negotiations, involving the use of DNA evidence, and were able to establish that our client would not pose future risk to Canadians and deserved this second chance.

He now lives with his partner and their children, with whom he has taken an active parental role. Without a stay of removal, it is likely that he would have had very little contact with his children in the future, and this family would have forever been ripped apart.

Parental Sponsorship Application Approved Under H&C Grounds!

Earlier this week we won an appeal for a son whose application to sponsor his mother was refused because he did not meet the necessary income requirements. At the hearing, we argued strenuously that the appeal ought to be allowed based on humanitarian and compassionate considerations. We provided strong evidence of the applicant mother’s difficult circumstances in her country of origin and prepared the family members to provide oral testimony. We are so pleased for this family who will now be reunited in Canada!

Family Reunited In Canada Despite Medical Inadmissibility Finding

Our clients sponsored their family members over 8 years ago. The application was in limbo for a number of years and then delayed further when one of the Applicants was found to likely be medically inadmissible because of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). The Applicant was determined to ultimately cause an excessive demand on the medical services in Canada. Following close examination of the Applicant’s particular circumstances of CKD, and working with medical specialists, we were able to secure appropriate medical evidence and advocate on the family’s behalf to demonstrate to the Medical and Visa Officer that the Applicant would not cause an excessive demand on medical services in Canada. The family’s application has been approved and they have all been reunited in Canada.
