Default Oh dear....

Just heard about someone who has been here on a WP for the full term (5 years??)...... has just been declined Landed Immigrant status!

He's in his 60's.... will that have had a big negative effect? The immigration lawyer told me that if you're accepted with a WP, LI is 99% certain. Maybe this is not so......

The lawyer is full of crap. The criteria for getting a PR visa are completely different to getting a TWP. Probably he overestimated his points score or didn't prepare a conclusive enough package. Certainly he employed a useless lawyer.

No, that was my lawyer when applying for the WP. I told him to assess my case with a view to applying for PR when here. In other words, I was not willing to relocate my family to work here unless I had an extremely good chance of getting PR.

I don't know what the person in question did..... I suspect he never asked the question until it was too late.... poor bloke.

I hope it wasn't your lawyer that was using the term "landed immigrant", because if he was, he's alarmingly out of date. Does he have any statistics to back up his 99% claim? Sounds like he was just eager to get your business.

There are several possible reasons for PR visa refusal under the circumstances, some more serious are:

- Medical inadmissibility due to excessive demand on health and/or social programs (not a problem for WP);

- Criminal inadmissibility due to recent conviction in Canada or abroad, or to the older conviction never disclosed with WP and PR application;

- Inadmissibility due to fraud, omission and/or misrepresentation made with any of applications (WP, PR or admission to Canada during first entry and/or any re-entry);

- Negative security check;

- Negative selection decision on the basis of R76(3) Substitute Evaluation (quite possible taking age into account).

There may be other reasons or combination of reasons though.

He based his assessment on the score we got after filling in the application form.

Maybe I used Landed Immigrant, not him. Can't remember!
