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…

Mandamus leads to Re-Issuance of COPR Document

After a long delay, our office was retained to assist a client with a demand letter for specific performance submissions to send to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (“IRCC”). Our client had previously obtained his Confirmation of Permanent Residence Document (“COPR”) but due to his personal circumstances, was not able to travel to Canada within the validity period and was instructed by IRCC to reach out when he was ready to travel so his COPR could be re-issued based on his unique circumstances and given the COVID-19 pandemic. Our client contacted IRCC independently and had not received a response on the extension or re-issuance of his COPR. Once retained, we submitted a request to IRCC to extend the validity of or re-issue the COPR within thirty (30) days, otherwise, we would commence a Court action before the Federal Court of Canada seeking Mandamus.   

When no response was received, we filed an Application for Leave and Judicial Review to the Federal Court. After some time, our client was issued his COPR. We are thrilled that our efforts paid off, leading to this great result, and wish our client the best of luck as a Canadian Permanent Resident.

TRV Granted After Success at the Federal Court

Our office was initially retained to assist our client with the refusal of his application for a temporary resident visa (TRV).  Upon review of the refusal letter, we suggested that our client challenge the decision to the Federal Court of Canada, as it appeared unreasonable. Once we received the Rule 9 (reasons for the decision), we crafted our legal arguments and filed all 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 client. Our client’s TRV application was remitted back to a new immigration officer for redetermination where he was given the opportunity to provide additional documents and legal submissions in support of his application.

After assisting in preparing and filing updated materials for the redetermination of our client’s TRV application, we were thrilled to learn that the application was approved, and our client would finally be issued a TRV. We wish our client all the best!

Successful Immigration to Canada Despite Suspected Medical Inadmissibility

Our clients retained us to assist with responding to a Procedural Fairness Letter (PFL). This was concerning a suspected medical inadmissibility finding, given that the medical concern could potentially create an excessive demand for Canada.
The matter concerned an individual with cancer and their resulting need for expensive targeted therapy, that was determined to be over the threshold. We undertook an extensive examination of the individual’s medical records and the circumstances of the condition, together with consultations with medical professionals and credible research. With this we were able to develop a plan for continuing care in line with the individual’s circumstances, examining both medical and non-medical factors.
We are pleased to advise that the plan was accepted by IRCC and the application for permanent residence was recently approved. We wish our client and their family the best of luck in Canada!
