Medically Inadmissible Granted Work Permits
We were successful in advocating for our clients and securing work permits, following an initial medical inadmissibility finding for a medical condition of HIV. Based on this the family was determined to require medical treatment and access to social services that was expected to result in an excessive demand. We challenged the resources relied on by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, and after exhaustive independent research were able to accurately determine what medical care would actually be required and where it was available in their intended province, all of which would not cause any excessive demand. The research was presented together with a comprehensive mitigation Plan, and our specialized legal submissions. As a result, the medical admissibility finding was overcome and the family was able to pursue their intended employment in Canada.
