Judicial Review (Federal Court)

A negative decision on an immigration, refugee or citizenship matter can be requested to be reviewed. This is called the ‘Leave’ stage. If the court is convinced that the decision is debatable and the immigration official may have erroneously denied the application, the leave to file a judicial review is granted-meaning thereby that the court will make an in-depth examination of the decision and grant an oral hearing.

Once the court is persuaded, it will set aside the decision and order a reconsideration of the matter. Please contact us if you feel that the decision you have received on your application is unfavorable.


There is usually no ‘appeal’ against a decision on Citizenship applications. An application for judicial review of a refused Canadian Citizenship application has to be made within 30 days of the refusal.

However, the Federal Court of Appeal can grant a leave to appeal against a negative decision on a citizenship application if the Federal Court Judge certifies that there is a serious question of general importance involved and states the question in the judgment.

Further, from a judgment by the Federal Court of Appeals, an appeal can be made to the Supreme Court of Canada and Supreme Court may grant a leave to appeal if it is convinced that an issue of public importance is raised in the case. The notice of application for leave to appeal must be made within 60 days of the judgment in question by the FCA.
