    Immigration Appeal Services

    Almost any refusal made by the Canadian immigration authorities can be appealed in some way. Refusals of visa applications such as Express Entry applications, work permits, study permits or visitor visas can be appealed to the Federal Court. Refusals of family class applications such as spouse or partner sponsorships, child or parental sponsorships can be appealed to the Immigration Appeal Division. Loss of permanent residence can often be appealed to the Immigration Appeal Division also. 

    Refused refugee claims can be appealed to the Refugee Appeal Division. There are also various appeal-like applications that can be made, such as Humanitarian and Compassionate applications, and applications for Pre-Removal Risk Assessment.

    Sponsorship Appeals

    Where a Canadian citizen or permanent resident has attempted to sponsor a family member, spouse or common-law partner and the application was rejected by the Immigration authorities, an appeal may be made to the IAD within 30 days of receipt of the refusal letter.

    Residency Appeals

    Canadian permanent residents who have been found not to have met the residency requirement of being in Canada for 2 years out of 5, and have lost their permanent residence as a result, can appeal the negative decision to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) within 60 days of the decision.

    Federal Court Appeals

    Federal Court appeals include refused visa application, Express Entry, or temporary residence applications like work permits, study permits, or visitor visa applications. These can be appealed with 15 days for decisions made in Canada and 60 days for decisions outside Canada.

    Mandamus Appeals

    An example of where you can do a mandamus appeal is if the immigration authority is delaying the processing of your immigration application for no good reason. Our office can help you to bring a mandamus appeal to the Federal Court, asking the court to order the immigration authority to fast-track the processing of the application.

    Refugee Appeals

    People who made refugee claims in Canada and had their case rejected can, in some cases, appeal to the Refugee Appeal Division (RAD). The RAD will review the evidence and either remit the case back to the Refugee Protection Division (RPD) for re-determination or substitute it with their own decision.

    Citizenship Appeals 

    Applications for Canadian citizenship that have been refused by the citizenship department may be appealed to the Federal Court within 30 days. These appeals proceed as applications for leave and judicial review. 

    Citizenship Revocation 

    Permanent residents who applied for Canadian citizenship and were rejected or have had their Canadian citizenship revoked through certain circumstances can respond or appeal the negative decision to the citizenship authorities.

    Immigration Appeal Success Stories

    Immigration Appeal client

    I used Matthew Jeffrey’s legal services for my husband’s appeal process and I am so glad I did! I wish I would have done this from the beginning of the sponsorship process but I’m happy I had the team on my side when it mattered. Absolutely professional, courteous and realistic (about options, upfront about costs and realistic total cost). They were by my side, advising me throughout my appeal process and hearing. Highly recommend!

    I am extremely pleased with Mr. Jeffery’s expert handling of my appeal to retain my permanent residence status for humanitarian and compassionate reasons. Mr. Jeffery was referred to me by a family friend who spoke very well of him. My case was not an easy one, but Mr. Jeffery skillfully presented its merits before the immigration board which subsequently decided in my favor. I can now join and live with my wife and children in Canada. My family and I are immensely grateful to Mr. Jeffery and his staff. They are very professional and experienced. We highly recommend Mr. Jeffery.
