Hearings and Appeals
Canada For Me has the legal authority to represent clients before the Federal Court of Canada. We are at your service, and will provide full support for your case, and protect your rights. In most cases, decisions that are made by immigration officials can be challenged (or appealed) in the Federal Court of Canada. Some common examples of hearings and appeals are the refusal of VISAS and PR applications under the CEC, FSW, REFUGEE, PRRA, or other categories.
In some circumstances, decisions must be appealed at the Immigration Appeal Division first. But when unsuccessful at the Immigration Appeal Division, decisions can be appealed in the Federal Court of Canada. Here, a judge will assess the decision in a process called a Judicial Review. This is a highly formal legal process, with strict rules and deadlines – it’s a process that begins with a written submission asking for permission (“leave”) to bring the decision before a judge
In circumstances where “leave” is granted, the next step is a legal hearing in a courtroom. If the effort at the Federal Court of Canada was unsuccessful, the next step is an appeal to the Federal Court of Appeal. Each of the steps in the process proceeds accordingly, and the decisions at this point can only be appealed in front of the Supreme Court of Canada. Clearly, all of these events require a high degree of knowledge and experience – something that Canada For Me can provide.
