Judicial Review

In situations where applications such as work permits, study permits, visitor visas and certain spousal cases, Canada Experience Class or Federal Skilled Worker applications for permanent residence; are rejected, all hope is not lost, as we can pursue your matter and make an application for Judicial review, to review the decision of the Immigration Officer or Panel Member as the case may be. In order to evaluate the success rate at the Federal court, we often ask the client to provide all documents the officer reviewed in order to reach the decision.


Judicial review has some serious time limitations depending on where the application was made. Where it was made outside Canada, application for JR is made at the federal court within 60 days from the date of receipt; while in cases where the application was made inside Canada, the application must be made within 15 days from the date of the receipt of the decision. 

Inadmissibility Issues & Detention

Certain persons due to prior criminal record, can result in a Canadian Immigration Officer refusing their entry, or application, on the basis of criminal inadmissibility. If you are found to be inadmissible or you predict you will be found, and you have cause to travel to Canada that is justified in the circumstances, you may be entitled to be issued a temporary resident permit (TRP). contact us today for your options.

 

In cases of detention, a person is usually detained by Canada’s Border Services Agency, by virtue of section 55 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, an officer:

 

  • considered it necessary to complete an examination;

 

  • was not satisfied with the person’s identity;

 

  • had reason to believe that a person was inadmissible to Canada and was a danger to the public, unlikely to appear for an examination, an admissibility hearing, removal from Canada or a proceeding that could lead to a removal order; or

 

  • had reason to suspect that the person was inadmissible to Canada for reasons of security, violating human or International rights, serious criminality, criminality or organized criminality.

Where the person is detained either in a provincial correctional facility or in a minimum-security immigration holding centre located in Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver, the Canada’s Border Service Agency determines where he or she will be detained. If you are detained contact us today to evaluate your options.

Labour Market Impact Assessment

Where a Canadian employer intends to hire a Temporary Foreign Worker (TFW) to work in Canada, they must apply for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) from the Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC)/Service Canada.

 

The rationale behind this application for LMIA is to assess the likely impact of hiring the TFW on the Canadian job market. where the employer receives a positive LMIA, then the TFW can apply to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for their work permit.
