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…

Judicial Review of Work Permit Application Allowed

Our client retained us following the refusal of his application for permanent residence under the Family class finding him inadmissible pursuant to paragraph 34(1)(f) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. We challenged the decision to the Federal Court of Canada, where Leave was granted, and the matter proceeded to a Judicial Review hearing. 

Following the grant of Leave and in preparation for the hearing, we undertook an extensive review of the record and conducted additional case law research. At the hearing, we argued that the refusal was both unreasonable and procedurally unfair.  

We were thrilled to learn the Application for Judicial Review was allowed and the Officer’s decision was set aside. Our client’s application for permanent residence will be remitted back to another Officer for redetermination where he will be allowed to provide additional evidence and legal submissions. We are thrilled with this result and wish our client all the best in his journey to becoming a Permanent Resident of Canada!

Overcoming Suspected Medical Inadmissibility for an Applicant with Leukemia

We recently worked on a case in which we prepared a Mitigation plan in consideration of suspected medical inadmissibility for an applicant with Leukemia. The individual was in Canada receiving ongoing treatment with expensive medication, funded by the province. We were able to assist in preparing a plan to mitigate the costs over the period under examination (5 years) with the assistance of both the provincial authorities and medical professional specialists here in Canada as well as complimentary research. We also included humanitarian and compassionate considerations that complimented the plan. Although it was a lengthy and involved process, we are pleased that the individual overcame the suggested inadmissibility finding and was granted permanent residence in Canada. We wish them the best of luck in Canada!

Application for Judicial Review Allowed

Prior to retaining our office, our client had requested Canada Border Services Agency to defer his removal from Canada, which was refused and an Application for Leave (“AFL”) and for a Judicial Review was filed. Once the AFL was allowed, we were contacted to assist with the Judicial Review hearing before the Federal Court. Our team reviewed the extensive record and did additional case law research in preparation for the hearing. We presented our oral arguments and learned shortly after that the Judge agreed with our position, allowing the Judicial Review. We are pleased that we were able to assist our client achieve such a great result and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

Joint Recommendation at the IAD allows our client to stay in Canada

Our client first came to us many years ago to assist with his hearings before the Immigration Division (“ID”) and the Immigration Appeal Division (“IAD”) of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (“IRB”). At that time, his removal from Canada was stayed for a set period of time and enforceable conditions were imposed on our client in order for him to remain in Canada.
Once ready for the redetermination of his removal order appeal, the client contacted us again to assist him with his matter before the IAD. We prepared our client and his witnesses extensively prior to the hearing and submitted a documentary disclosure in support of his appeal.
We are thrilled that we were able to come to a joint recommendation with Minister’s Counsel to extend our client’s stay of removal for an additional two years. We wish our client the best as he continues to build his life in Canada!
