APPLICATIONS TO REOPEN
In certain circumstances where an individual is prevented from adequately presenting his/her case, the person may be eligible for applying to reopen his/her case. This is based upon a very simple principle that is fundamental to the Canadian legal system, namely, the right to be heard. In the legal jargon, these are called cases in which there has been a “failure of natural justice” which enables the person to ask/request the reopening of his case.
These requests for reopening can only be made in a limited set of circumstances and are subject to complex legal requirements and prerequisites. It is therefore crucial that you obtain advice from an experienced immigration lawyer who regularly deals with administrative tribunals and bodies.
