Canada Denies Hundreds of Immigration Applicants Annually Based on Incorrect Medical Admissibility Data

Canada denies entry to hundreds of applicants each year based on incorrect medical admissability guidelines says Canadian Immigration Lawyer Evelyn Ackah of Ackah Business Immigration Law

A new report from Global News says Immigration Canada (IRCC) uses incorrect and incomplete data to deny admission due to “excessive demand” and medical inadmissibility guidelines to 900 and 1,000 applicants each year, including 200 to 300 cases related to “special education needs.” Those denied admission due to “excessive demand” exceeded Immigration Canada’s average individual health and social services usage guideline of $6,655 annually; Global News’ investigation indicates that Canadian’s average annual services usage is actually $7,404 – a discrepancy of almost 15%.

“Our clients rely on Canada’s immigration system to be fair and transparent. Managing costs is an important factor the government considers when assessing immigration applicants,” says Calgary immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah. “The government must know these costs when setting admissibility guidelines, and be clear and accurate when denying applications. Especially when families and children are involved, it’s vital that the correct information is given to the immigration officers who are evaluating the case.

Canada is a friendly, welcoming country but does have policies that allow it to effectively deny admission for those who have certain medical or financial needs. If you are refused entry to Canada because of some of those reasons, there may still be ways to enter the country. Immigration law is becoming more complex and challenging every day. Immigration applications can be refused due to minor oversights and omissions that can delay or negatively impact your family reunifications plans. By not using an immigration lawyer you can be putting your family at risk. Hiring an immigration lawyer rather than attempting to navigate the Canadian immigration system on your own can save you time and money.”
