Ways to appeal an immigration denial

The three ways an applicant can appeal a Canadian immigration denial are making a request for restoration to the Case Processing Centre, appealing their immigration application denial to the Federal Court of Canada or appealing their immigration application denial to the Immigration Adjudication Division.

While there are three different methods, which method is right for you depends on your own personal situation, your country of origin, your immigration application type and the reason for your application’s denial.

Keep in mind that applications for Canadian immigration are generally not just arbitrarily denied. There is generally a specific reason they are denied. However, you may have made a mistake in your initial Canadian immigration application or have forgotten to include an important piece of information that resulted in your application being denied.

Either way, once you receive notice from Citizenship and Immigration Canada you must contact a licensed immigration lawyer immediately.
