Well, if you look at the reasons given do they appear to be accurate in = fact? If
there is some error in fact you may have grounds for an = appeal. Or if there is
an error in law, or both. To determine that you = may need to seek some
professional advice.

However, in most cases I would not recommend an appeal to my clients as = appeals are
long, expensive and all that you really get is another = interview. But, if there is
no other way, then you can try.

Also, get an assessment under the new regs and see if you do any better. = If so,
apply again.

If it's any consolation to you, the job market in Canada these days is not very good.
I think a lot of approved applicants are at least considering delaying their arrival
for as long as they can in order to arrive at a "better" time. Unless you have LOTS
of money to bring with you (say, six-to-twelve months of financial support), it may
actually be a blessing in disguise not to have succeeded this time, and you can
always re-apply when times are better and you're more prepared.

Good luck to you and your family.
