This Week’s Success Story: Medical Inadmissibility Finding Overturned!
We were recently successful on a case where a dependent applicant had an autoimmune disorder and the Officer made the assumption that because the individual had this condition, the condition would deteriorate to the point that the individual would require home care services and even placement in a long-term care facility in the next 5 years. This was determined to cause an excessive demand as these services are publicly funded. A Plan was built together with the family to challenge the need for the publicly funded services based on the individual’s personal circumstances of the condition, and also provide details of their plan of care in Canada that was going to be delivered outside the public sector. We are pleased to report that the matter was successful and the family has recently been reunited in Canada, permanently.
