How to Appeal a Canadian Visa Refusal in Vancouver in 2012

Many people face a Canadian visa refusal – you’re not alone. Being notified by Citizenship and Immigration Canada that your Canadian visa application was denied can be very disappointing and frustrating. However, depending on the reason for your Canadian visa application being denied, you do have options.

Ways to appeal a Canadian visa refusal

1. You could be eligible to make a request for restoration to the CPC (Case Processing Centre) when you’ve been notified that your Canadian visa application was refused.

2. You could be eligible to appeal your Canadian visa application refusal to the Canadian Immigration Adjudication Division (IAD) after you receive notification your Canadian visa application was refused.

3. You could be eligible to appeal your Canadian visa application refusal to the Federal Court of Canada after you’ve found out your Canadian visa application has been refused.

Note that there is no legal requirement to work with a licensed immigration lawyer during the appeals process. However, the immigration appeals process is extremely complicated and difficult if you have no experience in the appeals process. You will have to make compelling arguments as to why your application needs to be looked at again and why you deserve to come to Canada. In addition, the government has plenty of lawyers and officials working for them already, putting you at a disadvantage if you go it alone.
