This Week’s Success Story: Express Entry Canadian Experience Class Application Approved Despite Medical Inadmissibility Finding

Posted by Fabiola Arevalo - Bellissimo Law Group PC

Our client met the requirements of the Express Entry Program, under the Canadian experience class, and filed an application for permanent residence, receiving a high CRS score. However, there was a roadblock as the Applicant was determined to likely be inadmissible under subsection 38(1) of the IRPA, for an excessive demand, due to the costs of the prescription treatment required for a pre-existing medical condition. Following extensive research and consultations, a Plan was built for private funding and that Mitigation Plan was presented together with legal submissions, advocating that the Applicant would not be using social services that are publicly funded. The Plan was accepted in record time, in under a month, and the application approved.
