We specialize in providing legal services to individuals and families dealing with denied Canadian immigration applications. Our experienced and knowledgeable team is dedicated to helping you navigate the complex world of Canadian immigration law and policy.
We understand the complexities of obtaining a study permit in Canada. A person who is unhappy with a decision made by the immigration authorities may, in certain cases, be eligible to apply for a judicial review of that decision in the Federal Court.
Although the decisions of the administrative decision-makers are binding, if they act unfairly or unjustly, their decision can be reviewed in a process called judicial review. Our lawyers at Mussio Goodman can help you through the judicial review process with the goal of overturning your study permit refusal decision.
With our commitment to personalized attention and clear communication, you can trust us to handle your study permit review application with the utmost care.
We are here to support you through the process of judicial review for denied applications, including but not limited to:
- Permanent Residency Applications
- Sponsorship Applications
- Citizenship Applications
- Work Permit Applications
- Study Permit Applications
- Express Entry Applications
- Provincial Nominee Programs

Visitor Visa Applications: A visitor visa is for individuals who want to travel to Canada for a temporary period for tourism, visiting family or friends, or for business purposes. The processing time for a visitor visa can vary depending on the individual’s circumstances and the country they are applying from. To be eligible, applicants must demonstrate that they have ties to their home country, have sufficient funds to support themselves while in Canada, and have no intention of immigrating to Canada permanently.
Permanent Residency Applications: Permanent residency in Canada is a status that allows individuals to live and work in Canada on a long-term basis. There are several immigration programs that lead to permanent residency, including the Federal Skilled Worker Program, the Federal Skilled Trades Program, the Canadian Experience Class, and the Provincial Nominee Program. To apply for permanent residency, individuals must meet specific eligibility criteria and pass a medical exam and security check.
Sponsorship Applications: Canadian citizens and permanent residents can sponsor certain family members to come to Canada as permanent residents. Family members who can be sponsored include spouses, common-law partners, dependent children, parents, and grandparents. The sponsor must meet certain eligibility criteria, including having enough income to support the sponsored family members.
Citizenship Applications: Canadian citizenship can be obtained by individuals who have been permanent residents in Canada for a certain period of time. To be eligible for citizenship, individuals must meet certain residency requirements, pass a language test, and pass a citizenship test. Individuals who become Canadian citizens have the right to live, work, and study in Canada and are eligible to apply for a Canadian passport.
Work Permit Applications: Work permits allow individuals to come to Canada to work temporarily. Work permits can be obtained through various immigration programs, such as the International Mobility Program, the International Experience Canada program, and the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. Work permits are usually tied to a specific employer and are valid for a specific period of time.

Study permit holders are eligible to work on campus and off campus while they study. To be eligible for a study permit, individuals must be accepted into a designated learning institution, have enough funds to support themselves while they study, and pass a medical exam and security check.

To be eligible for Express Entry, individuals must meet certain eligibility criteria and have a qualifying job offer or experience in a high-demand occupation.
Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs): The Provincial Nominee Program allows individuals who have the skills and experience needed by a particular province or territory to receive a nomination certificate. With this certificate, the individual can then apply for permanent residency in Canada. Each province and territory has its own specific criteria for eligibility and nomination.
Family Class Sponsorship: Family class sponsorship is a type of sponsorship program that allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor certain family members to come to Canada as permanent residents. The family members who can be sponsored include spouses, common-law partners, dependent children, parents, and grandparents.
Refugee and Asylum Claims: Canada provides protection to individuals who are refugees or asylum seekers and are in need of protection due to a well-founded fear of persecution in their home country. Individuals can make a refugee claim at the Canadian border or from within Canada. If their claim is accepted, they will be eligible to apply for permanent residency in Canada.

What is the difference between a judicial review and an appeal?
A judicial review is a legal process in which a federal court reviews the decision of an administrative body, such as the immigration department, to determine if it was made within the bounds of the law. An appeal, on the other hand, is a legal process in which a higher court reviews the decision of a lower court to determine if there was any error in the decision.
What happens if my judicial review is successful?
If your judicial review is successful, the federal court will set aside the denial decision and direct the immigration department to reconsider your application. This may result in the granting of your immigration application or a new hearing to determine the outcome.
