Being refused Immigration Canada never feels fun – especially when you’ve made a financial and emotional investment to make your dream happen. All is not lost – it’s never really over. Here are 4 steps to help you get resettled and back on track. Remember: there are many pathways to Canada. You just need to choose the right one.
Get a Professional to Review the File. Have a Canadian immigration professional review and assess your application. If your first attempt at applying to Canada was a DIY application, chances are you’ve overlooked some key components that affected a decision. Hire a Canadian immigration professional to do a quick and affordable assessment; ask for a formal written opinion on “what went wrong” and “what happens now.”
Request the Officer’s Notes. You can ask a Canadian contact/friend/representative or your immigration professional to request the officer’s notes. The processing timeline is 1 month (estimate) and the cost is $5. This will give you the detailed reasons behind the refusal – more than you likely want to see. It’s important that you know about all deficiencies before submitting another application.
Carefully Prepare A Re submission. In your next application, t is very important that you do not present any conflicting details in a second application – unless you can explain the discrepancy. For example: If you presented your work experience as being 2 years in the refused application and now list your work experience as 3 years, they will assume you are lying (either in the past application or the current application). The chances are pretty good that your application will land back on the desk of the officer that refused you. Know your story and stick to it…or explain why the story has changed. Discrepancies = Misrepresentation = 5 year ban (you don’t want that).
Get a Submissions Letter from a Canadian Immigration Professional: Canadian immigration professionals can represent you before Immigration Canada. One of the most effective ways they do this is by writing a powerful submissions letter. Through their submission letter, an immigration lawyer or a consultant speaks directly to the officer reviewing your file. You need someone advocating for your admission.
Most importantly, go easy on yourself. Refusals happen. Don’t let this define your future. Get help. Get back up. Get into Canada.
