Immigration Refusals

If your Canadian immigration application has been refused, then here are some options:

  • You may be eligible to Appeal your Canadian Immigration Application Refusal to the Federal Court of Canada within a certain period after you were notified of the refusal by Canada Immigration.
  • You may be eligible to Appeal your Canadian Immigration Application Refusal to the Immigration Adjudication Division (IAD) within a certain period of after your application was refused by Canada Immigration.
  • You may be able to make a request for Restoration to the Case Processing Centre (CPC) after being notified if the refusal.

What Is The Best Option For Me?

It depends on a number of reasons such as the type of case that is involved. Is it a Skilled Worker Application, Canadian Sponsorship Application or Canadian Work Visa refusal?  If you picked the right type of case, then your paperwork and any support documents must be prepared correctly.

Another reason may depend on where the Canadian immigration application was filed and processed. Was your Canadian immigration application filed within Canada or at a Canadian Consulate or Embassy outside of Canada?

Why did I get refused for Canadian Immigration Application?

Usually refusals don’t just happen for Canadian immigration applications.

  • When applications for Canadian immigration are submitted to Canada immigration, an immigration officer is responsible for reviewing the application and making an assessment about whether the application should be approved or denied.
  • The immigration officer has guidelines for making decisions on immigration cases. These guidelines are found in the Immigration Regulations as well as Immigration Manuals.
  • When applications do not meet the various standards and criteria set out in the Immigration Regulations and Manuals, then the likely result is a refusal.
  • However, in many cases, Canadian immigration officers make mistakes in their decisions.
  • They often are too strict in their interpretation of the guidelines or they simply fail to review all the documentation and information in an application.
  • Sometimes applicants are called for a personal interview and the immigration officer does not believe the applicant is credible or trustworthy.

It is important to act very quickly once you are notified that your case was denied, regardless of the reason. In some situations, an Immigration Appeal may be an option.
