Despite your best efforts, your application may be denied. In these cases, you have a number of options to appeal or request a review depending on what you were originally applying for. We can help you choose the best option to receive a positive result.
Appealing a Permanent Residence Decision
If your application for sponsorship or permanent residence is denied you have the right to appeal the decision and receive a new hearing. These cases are heard by the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board. During the appeal witnesses can be called, new evidence can be introduced, and you can testify or answer questions.
Judicial Review for Work Permit Application
In cases where your work permit application is denied, you must file a judicial review with the Federal Court of Canada. The decision is based solely on the original information that was included in the application, and there is no opportunity to introduce new evidence, call witnesses, or testify. Only a lawyer may file for judicial review and be present during the proceedings. Immigration consultants and other advisors cannot present your case, and you cannot be present in the court
