Inadmissibility, Refusals & Appeals

There’s always a second chance.

There is always the chance that an appeal may be successful, and if so it will go through one or more levels of court system. However, with refusal by immigration authorities there are other ways to fight back!

Immigration Refusals

Reasons for refusal may be:

  • Failure to provide proper documentation
  • Failure to demonstrate required financial resources for yourself (and your dependent)
  • Failure to establish your clear intention for residing in Canada
  • Failure to clear inadmissibility on grounds of criminality or security

For VISAs and other applications, sometimes the government doesn’t provide an answer. But, there are always ways and methods to find out – that’s why if you’ve been refused entry to Canada, an immigration lawyer may be the answer. Joshua Slayen is an experienced lawyer who can overturn a refusal and get you back on your feet.
