Successful Challenge of a PR Refusal
When our client first came to us, she wanted to challenge the refusal of her application for permanent residence on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds to the Federal Court of Canada. Following Leave being granted, the Judicial Review hearing was scheduled. We reviewed recent case law and prepared the Applicant’s Further Memorandum. Upon filing, we received notice from the Department of Justice on behalf of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada that they wanted to settle the matter without proceeding to the hearing. Our client was thrilled and agreed. As a result, our client’s application was sent back for redetermination, and she will be given the opportunity to provide new documents and legal submissions for a new Officer to review. We wish our client the best and hope she is able to continue living in Canada with her loved ones.
