This Month’s Featured Success Stories!
At BLG we are privileged to work on behalf of many wonderful people, companies and associations. We represent people from the time they step foot into the country in airport waiting rooms all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada.
Our clients often tell us after their case was concluded it would have helped to know of similar stories that are real and not just what you hear on the street. So every month we post a few stories to celebrate our success and offer some comfort to those who will soon embark on a similar journey . . .

Applicant Granted Study Permit
Recently, our firm assisted with an individual’s study permit application. The matter was quite challenging considering that the applicant had applied on his own twice in the past, and was refused in both instances. However, with our submissions, we are very pleased with the end result, in which the applicant has successfully obtained his study permit.
Family Landed in Complex and Compelling Case
We were recently successful on an application for permanent residence, based on Humanitarian and Compassionate considerations, for a family who had been living in Canada for over 10 years. In addition to the usual issues that can arise when individuals are in Canada without status, there was also a complicated medical inadmissibility matter under consideration. Ultimately, following extensive submissions, the requested exemptions were granted and the family is thrilled to call themselves permanent residents of Canada.
Submissions Help Grant Work Permit and ARC Approval
Our office was approached by a young man with respect to his options for returning to Canada. He had been previously deported from Canada, however, had a valid job offer as a caregiver. After assisting his employer to obtain a positive Labour Market Impact Assessment, we submitted an application for a work permit with an accompanying Authorization to Return (ARC) to Canada for the young man.
We made strong submissions with respect to the circumstances surrounding his departure from Canada, the need for him to return to Canada, as well as the steps that he had taken since his departure to upgrade his education and find work in his chosen field. Our submissions and supporting documents were accepted by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada and both his applications for work permit and ARC were recently approved.
