Federal Court - Judicial Review
Certain immigration refusals may be reviewed by the Federal Court of Canada through the Judicial Review process. If the decision is rendered within Canada, the deadline to file a Judicial Review is 15 days and if outside of Canada, within 60 days. If the Judicial Review is allowed, then the decision is sent back to the immigration office for a re-determination by a different immigration officer.
There are no witnesses in a Judicial Review, lawyers will prepare and submit argumentation and argue at the Federal Court in person should a hearing be granted through the Leave Application.
