This Week’s Success Story: Overcoming Excessive Demand Finding Due to Chronic Kidney Disease Leads to Successful PR!
We worked on a PFL response last year for an individual with Chronic Kidney Disease who has been determined to expect to create an excessive demand in Canada based on an anticipated need for dialysis or a kidney transplant in Canada. We spent considerable time working with the family, medical experts and provincial authorities addressing Government policy changes to build a reasonable and well supported plan. The response focused on the applicant’s individualized circumstances examining both the applicant’s medical and non-medical factors, and also examined the applicant’s eligibility for the identified public social services in the province of destination. We advocated for an amended medical profile to M3, which we are pleased to report was successful.
