This Week’s Success Story: Deportation Prevented!
Our office was recently retained to respond to a Procedural Fairness Letter issued by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) from a client who had incurred a criminal conviction potentially rendering him criminally inadmissible to Canada.
In consideration of the client’s personal and family circumstances as well as his path to rehabilitation, we prepared a comprehensive submission package, supported by the law, advocating that the s.44 report should not be referred to the Immigration Division. CBSA positively considered the arguments put forth by our office, and decided to not proceed with the s.44 referral or deportation action, providing our client with a warning letter instead.
