Immigration to Canada is the epitome of hope. Many people dream of immigrating to Canada for the promise of a better life. A rejected immigration application can shatter those dreams.

Every year thousands of immigration applications are rejected. However, if your application to immigrate has been rejected, you still have hope.

You may be able to overturn your rejection and fulfill your dream of immigrating to Canada.

What if my application is rejected?

If your application has been rejected, you still have home. You can:

  • Appeal the decision to the Immigration and Refugee Appeal Board of Canada; or
  • Have the decision reviewed by a judge at the Federal Court of Canada.

Why was my application rejected?

Immigration officers are required to follow a rigid set of guidelines when deciding whether to reject or approve an application. These guidelines are meant to help the officer make an informed decision.

However, many legitimate applications are rejected because they do not fit into the standards established by these guidelines.

The appeal process can level the playing field. With an appeal, you can establish the legitimacy of your application.

What can I do if my taking too long to process?

First, check application processing times. If it is still in the designated wait period, then you will have to wait.

However, if your application is outside the designated wait period, then the Federal Court of Canada can instruct immigration officials to act on your application.
