Overcoming Suspected Inadmissibility for Misrepresentation
Prior to retaining our office, our client had submitted a permanent residence application through the express entry stream, but had failed to disclose that he and his spouse had been removed by United States Immigration. Our client received a Procedural Fairness Letter (“PFL”) alleging that he had misrepresented on his application. We assisted in responding to the PFL, explaining that they had already disclosed this information when they had previously applied for (and been granted) study and work permits, and had accidentally missed selecting the correct checkbox in their PR application. We also included Humanitarian and Compassionate considerations that complimented the response. We are pleased that our clients overcame the suggested inadmissibility finding and have been granted permanent residence in Canada. We wish them the best of luck in Canada!
