This Month’s Featured Success Stories!
Posted by: Alissa Mancuso
Bellissimo Law Group has the privilege of working on behalf of many wonderful people, companies, and associations.
Our clients often tell us after their case was concluded that it would have been helpful to read about stories similar to theirs. So, here are this month’s featured success stories!
Ontario PNP Nomination Re-Issued!
Our office assisted a client with respect to the re-issuance of an Ontario Provincial Nominee Program (“PNP”) nomination certificate. In October 2012, our client received a positive nomination certificate and submitted his permanent residence application before expiry. Unfortunately, his application was deemed incomplete and was unprocessed. Due to some mailing delays, our client did not receive the return of his permanent residence application package until over two years later, well past the PNP nomination certificate expiry date. The category he had been nominated under was also no longer available.
Our office assisted this client to make submissions to Ontario PNP to have his nomination certificate re-issued. Even though over two years had passed since the issuance of his original nomination certificate, the Ontario PNP office agreed to re-issue our client’s PNP certificate and he was able to re-submit his permanent residence application. His application has already passed completeness check and we expect our client to receive the approval of his permanent resident in the near future.
PR Granted Following Initial Medical Inadmissibility!
We were recently successful in assisting our client in receiving permanent residence for their entire family, following an initial medical inadmissibility finding for an autistic child whose education would have resulted in an excessive demand finding for the entire family. We provided advice and assisted in sourcing out a qualified private educator in the appropriate province. Once obtained we developed an appropriate education plan that was to be privately funded, following the appropriate legal test. The detailed plan together with the detailed and particularized legal submissions were well presented, and ultimately successful. The family is pleased to call Canada their home today!
From Refusal to Successful Study Permit!
We were approached by a client who applied for extension of his work permit on his own and was refused. He was a participant of the Alberta special pilot project and without having a valid Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA), an extension of his work permit could not have been granted. With our help, he managed to restore his status and change it to a study permit without having to leave Canada. He will be starting school in September!
