This Month’s Featured Success Stories!
At BLG we are privileged to work on behalf of many wonderful people, companies and associations. We represent people from the time they step foot into the country in airport waiting rooms all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada.
Our clients often tell us after their case was concluded it would have helped to know of similar stories that are real and not just what you hear on the street. So every month we post a few stories to celebrate our success and offer some comfort to those who will soon embark on a similar journey . . .
Immigration Work Permit Status Issue Overcome and Permanent Residency Granted in Two Months!
A young man who had received a qualifying (LMIA based) job offer from a Canadian employer, approached us for assistance with his permanent residence and work permit applications. Unfortunately, having previously submitted applications which were returned unprocessed and refused, he had inadvertently worked without authorization and lost his status in Canada.
With our assistance and extension submissions, we were able to assist the young man to submit his permanent residence application explaining his unauthorized work and overstay. We are happy to report that his application for permanent residence was recently approved in just two short months.
Canadian Citizenship Granted Despite IRCC’s Misrepresentation Finding
An individual became the subject of (then) Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) investigations on a citizenship application for misrepresentation; specifically for failing to disclose information. CIC’s investigations revealed criminally related information, however after our investigations, we represented the individual in proving that he had not misrepresented any material fact, nor did he have any criminal convictions. This individual has since had his application processed and was pleased to take his oath as a new Canadian citizen.
