When a Canadian Visa Officer has made an improper or unwarranted decision, such as the refusal of application or some other unsupported determination, the matter may be submitted to the Immigration Appeal Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada. ICL Immigration Inc will assess your case to determine if an appeal is appropriate. If appropriate, we offer legal representation for the entire Immigration appeals process. If you believe that your case is appropriate for the Immigration Appeal Division, we invite you to contact us directly.
Immigration Refusals and Delays
Certain situations are appropriate for intervention from the Federal Court or submission to the Immigration Appeal Division. Typically, improper refusals or delays in immigration application processing may be appropriate for one of those options.
Immigration applications can be refused by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for a wide range of reasons, from failure of the applicant to achieve the required number of points to credibility concerns. ICL Immigration Inc has dealt with most of these possible scenarios, and can provide representation in the appeal of certain refusals.
Immigration processing delays also occur for a number of reasons. In most cases, the Visa Office processing the application is doing the absolute best they can to process the application in a timely fashion. Under certain circumstances, however, a Visa Office will have delayed far beyond the standard processing time. In those cases, it may be necessary to seek intervention to mandate that the Visa Office process the application in a timely fashion.
If you have been subject to an improper immigration refusal or delay, please contact us directly to let us know about your case.
Certain humanitarian and compassionate cases can increase the likelihood of an immigration application being approved.
Such circumstances require special, individualized attention so that the circumstances of the applicant can be properly brought to the Visa Officer's attention. In some rare cases, a Canadian Member of Parliament may also see a reason to become involved. A typical humanitarian and compassionate case requires that the applicant would experience unusual and undeserved or disproportionate hardship if he or she is not granted an exemption to one or more of the Canadian immigration requirements.
Claiming Refugee Protection
Refugee protection in Canada requires that you are unwilling or unable to return to your country because of a well-founded fear of persecution based on your race, religion, political opinion, nationality, or membership in a particular social group. A person who is need of protection is one whose removal to his or her home country would subject him or her to a danger of torture, a risk to life, or a risk of cruel and unusual treatment or punishment.
Medical, Criminal, or Other Inadmissibility
Reasons for medical, criminal, or other inadmissibility to Canada can be quite complex. Ultimately, if you are found inadmissible, you will be unable to visit or reside in Canada (with a number of limited exceptions for short-term visits).
However, a determination of inadmissibility is subject to review and appeal. In addition, if you are properly found to be inadmissible, there are often ways to correct your inadmissibility. For example, if you are criminally inadmissible, you may be eligible to apply for "rehabilitation", which will allow you to be admitted to Canada. If you are experience problems or have questions about medical, criminal, or other inadmissibility to Canada, please contact us directly so that we can advise you accordingly.

Detention, Deportations, Exclusions, and Removal Orders; Authority to Return to Canada
Misrepresentations, customs violations, immigration violations, or credibility concerns can result in your detention upon your entry to Canada. In certain cases, if the Canada Border Services Agent determines that you have not met the requirement for entry to Canada, you will be allowed to withdraw your application and leave Canada. However, in extraordinary cases, individuals can be deported from Canada, be ordered to leave, and even be excluded from entry to Canada for a period of time. In cases where you have been subject to an exclusion order and you have reason to return to Canada, you must first apply for and obtain authority prior to entry. ICL Immigration Inc. can provide you with a full range of legal immigration services related to detention, deportation, exclusions, and removal orders.
