This Week’s Success Story: Family Successful at Refugee Appeal Division!
We were retained by a client and his sibling following the refusal of their refugee claim before the Refugee Protection Division (RPD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB). The clients were not satisfied with the RPD decision and wanted to file an appeal to the Refugee Appeal Division (RAD).
After filing the Appeal Record, and almost an eight-month long wait, we finally received the decision we had been hoping for. The RAD Member allowed the appeal, meaning he set aside the RPD decision, and determined that our clients are Convention Refugees.
We were pleased to learn that their appeal was accepted and they would be able apply for permanent residence. We look forward to assisting them in the next stage of their application so they can remain safely in Canada.
