This Week’s Success Story: Long Hard Battle for Study Permit Ends in Joy!
We were retained by a client whose situation was a little bit different than that of many other would be international students. He was much older, married with children, had a significant career but wanted to come to Canada and pursue a long held dream of studying in Canada. Simply put the belief was why now at this stage of his life? He seemingly did not fit the “mold”.
After two refusals the same doggedness that led to a very successful career as well as family life this applicant refused to be pigeon-holed. He simply asked to be considered based upon his individualized circumstances. Look at who and why and not how he compared to others. After a successful challenge at the Federal Court his application was sent back to the visa office for redetermination by another officer. We updated the submissions for redetermination and finally acceptance was at hand. We cannot describe the elation our clients and we all felt! We wish this family all the best as they embark upon a new chapter in their lives.
