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 . . .
Thorough Submissions Grant Client Temporary Resident Permit
We were successful in assisting one of our long-term clients in securing a new Temporary Resident Permit, which are difficult to obtain. By partnering with our clients and developing thorough and compelling submissions, we were successful in our efforts. Our client was relieved that despite material changes in his life, one of those changes would not include having to leave Canada.
Family Class PR Application Approved in Express Time!
We recently assisted a member of a family class, the spouse of a Canadian citizen, applying for permanent residency from overseas. With our extensive submissions, the application was approved in express time. We sent the application to CPC Mississauga on 16 March 2016 and on 28 Apr 2016, we received a notification that a permanent resident visa was ready!
Extensive Submissions Grant Study Permit After Previous Refusal
Our firm was approached by a young woman who’s most recent study permit extension application had been refused. She had commenced her studies in Canada prior to the new changes to study permits in June 2014 and held a study permit for a school which was not on the Designated Learning Institute list. She had only one semester of school remaining, and was devastated that she would be unable to complete her studies and qualify for a post-graduate work permit. Our firm made extension submissions on behalf of our client and was able to restore her status in Canada. Her accompanying co-op work permit was also approved along with her study permit. She will now be able to complete her program and have the opportunity to apply for a post-graduate work permit!
