A mismatch between the Federal Court and the Government of Canada

An applicant from Nigeria who applied for a study permit to pursue higher education in Canada got rejected for not providing sufficient funds to cover all four years of study. The Federal Court of Canada found this decision reasonable and disagreed with the applicant that his financial statements contradicted the visa officer’s decision. While the Government of Canada’s website clearly points out that “students are required to demonstrate financial sufficiency for only the first year of studies, regardless of the duration of the course or program of studies in which they are enrolled,” it is not known how this decision did not breach the Applicant’s rights to procedural fairness.
