Judicial Review

When an application has been refused, there may still be options. If there is no opportunity to appeal to the Immigration and Refugee Board then challenging the decision means applying to the Federal Court of Canada for judicial review. In the event of a refusal, a judicial review might be the only possibility of keeping an application going, without starting from scratch again.
