Lawyers for Immigration Proceedings in Canada
If you have been found inadmissible to Canada or otherwise aggrieved by a decision of the immigration authorities, litigation may be your best option. Litigation may include an immigration hearing, appeal or proceeding in Federal Court. The litigation process can be extremely confusing, and it is always best to be represented by a qualified, competent lawyer.
At Embarkation Law Group, our Vancouver litigation lawyers are highly experienced at representing clients throughout Canada and worldwide in adversarial proceedings before the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) and the Federal Court, including the following:
- Immigration Division hearings : A person who has been detained or found inadmissible is entitled to a hearing before the Immigration Division. A hearing is often a necessary step in the process of pursuing an immigration appeal or judicial review.
- Immigration Appeal Division cases : Canadian permanent residents and citizens are entitled to appeal findings of inadmissibility and sponsorship denials to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD).
- Refugee Protection Division cases: There are many countries in the world where certain groups may fear persecution based on their race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership to a particular social group. These people are able to seek Canada's protection through the refugee process.
- Federal Court applications for leave and judicial review : If your immigration application has been denied, one remedy you may have is to pursue judicial review in Federal Court. As lawyers, we are qualified to represent clients before the Federal Court.
Each level of the litigation process — hearings, appeals, refugee protection and Federal Court — is governed by its own procedures and legal standards. Our lawyers have an in-depth understanding of what is required to achieve success for our clients in each type of proceeding. We will carefully advise you and diligently pursue your options.
