SPECIAL SERIES: Immigration Hearings and Appeals

Everything you ever wanted to know about the immigration appeal process with Rekha McNutt

One of the most heartbreaking realities of practicing Canadian immigration law is the fact that not all applications submitted will get approved.There is nothing worse than having to inform a client that their application was rejected. Inevitably, the first question a client asks after being told about the refusal, is how can we appeal that refusal.

Well, in this special series I will be releasing over the next couple of months, my good friend and colleague Rekha McNutt will join me to explore all of the ins and outs of the Canadian immigration appeal process and what happens in these hearings. Whether you are an immigration lawyer, consultant, or recently rejected applicant, this series is for you.

This special series on immigration appeals came about when Rekha and I realized that it was really difficult to try to limit the scope of this topic to just one episode. As we discussed the possible areas of immigration appeal, it became readily apparent that a special series on immigration appeals would be far more useful to the immigration practitioner and their clients than a high level discussion at the 10,000 foot level.

After all, this Podcast was designed to be very practical in nature and filled with numerous take aways that we and our clients could use in navigating our way through this complex area of immigration law, policy, and practice. I’ll leave the 10,000 foot level for my good friends, Peter, Steven, and Deanna over at the Borderlines Podcast….which is one I highly recommend you check out.

So after discussing the possible ways in which we could structure this series, we settled on breaking things down by division first and then type of appeal within each division. Here are the general topics you can expect in the coming weeks and months:

  1. Immigration Division – detention reviews and admissibility
  2. Immigration Appeal Division – spousal and parental sponsorship, removal order appeals
  3. Refugee Protection Division – refugee claims
  4. Refugee Appeal Division – refugee appeals
  5. Special Episode – s.117(9)(d) refusals

I think you are going to absolutely love this series whether you are a new practicing lawyer, a seasoned practitioner, or an everyday applicant staring at a refusal letter and wondering where to turn now.
