This Week’s Success Story: PR Approval After Procedural Fairness Letter
A client retained our office after receiving a Procedural Fairness Letter (PFL) outlining concerns about their immigration history in another country in which they had previously studied and worked – the client had a visa in this country cancelled. The client received this letter in relation to their Permanent Residence application to Canada. The client had declared the visa cancellation on the application, but was understandably concerned that this issue might affect their eligibility for Permanent Residence.
After extensive legal research, our office carefully drafted an Affidavit on behalf of our client, explaining in further detail the circumstances leading to the visa cancellation, to support our written submissions in response to the PFL. We argued that the client’s immigration history did not render them inadmissible to Canada. After submitting our response, IRCC followed up on two subsequent matters before issuing the PR approval for our client! Thankfully, our hard work, as well as our client’s, paid off!
