Refusal and Five-Year Ban From Canada Overturned; Family’s PR Application Approved
We succeeded in settling a Federal Court case and overturning the refusal of a Federal Skilled Worker application for permanent residence on grounds of misrepresentation. The Visa Office concluded, after conducting on-site verifications, that the applicant had misrepresented his work experience. As a result, the application was refused and the applicant and his family were deemed inadmissible to Canada for five years.
The case was settled soon after our initial arguments were filed, and the application was sent back to the visa office for redetermination. After assisting our client in updating his application, he recently was informed that his application had been approved. He and his family will soon obtain their permanent residence visas and be able to come to Canada for the first time.
