Judicial Review of Work Permit Refusal Allowed
Our client retained us following the refusal of his application for a work permit based on a finding of inadmissibility due to misrepresentation. We challenged the decision to the Federal Court of Canada, where Leave was granted, and the matter proceeded to a Judicial Review hearing.
At the hearing, we argued that the refusal was both procedurally unfair and unreasonable. The Application for Judicial Review was allowed, and the Officer’s decision was set aside. Our client’s application for a work permit 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 the best!
