Refused or Denied Entry to Canada
We know how frustrating it can be when you have been refused or denied a visa or admission to Canada. Every day, immigration authorities receive applications for permanent residence, visitor’s visas, work permits, TRP’s, study permits, etc. Not all applications are accepted. Also, Canada receives travelers from all over the world by air, or by a private or commercial vehicle. Some are denied entry even though they may have already been to Canada many times before. Fortunately, you have options.
Sometimes, we can resolve these matters informally with the immigration officer handling the matter. On other occasions, we can help our clients by simply applying again with better supporting documentation and a better explanation as to why you comply with all legal requirements. Sometimes, there is no other way to solve the problem other than through a legal challenge.
Fortunately, almost any decision made by immigration officials can be challenged either in the Federal Court of Canada or at the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB). Our team of litigation lawyers can help assemble the relevant facts of your case and determine if the process that was used to refuse the application was fair. Then we can prepare the appropriate proceeding to get you the desired results. When it comes to challenging refusals and removals, timing is everything. The timing for submitting applications to appeal or review a decision is time-limited. It is extremely important to appeal or judicially review an application within the time limits allowed by law. As soon as you become aware of a negative decision please contact us at once to make sure that your right to a fair result does not expire.
