Successful Immigration to Canada Despite Suspected Medical Inadmissibility
Our clients retained us to assist with responding to a Procedural Fairness Letter (PFL). This was concerning a suspected medical inadmissibility finding, given that the medical concern could potentially create an excessive demand for Canada.
The matter concerned an individual with cancer and their resulting need for expensive targeted therapy, that was determined to be over the threshold. We undertook an extensive examination of the individual’s medical records and the circumstances of the condition, together with consultations with medical professionals and credible research. With this we were able to develop a plan for continuing care in line with the individual’s circumstances, examining both medical and non-medical factors.
We are pleased to advise that the plan was accepted by IRCC and the application for permanent residence was recently approved. We wish our client and their family the best of luck in Canada!
