It can happen to anyone, especially if there is an error on the application. While frustrating, you do have options – we can help you.

Why would an immigration application be refused?

One of the most important things to figure out when your immigration application for Canada has been refused is why it was refused. This is so important because it will determine your next steps towards appealing your immigration decision.

Were important documents lost and your application denied because of an error or mistake on the visa officer’s part?

Did you make a mistake on your application, forget to include a piece of supporting documentation or make any kind of omission with your application?

Were you unqualified for the immigration stream you applied for, or did you not meet all of the requirements needed for that immigration stream?
