I am illegal in Canada facing Deporation. How can I stop it? Can I appeal?

I am having a terrible time with Canada immigration and now I am due to be deported from Canada. It was set for 12th September 2009 but 20 minutes later I received a call from the agent at the CBSA and he told me that they made a mistake and my ticket is no longer valid.  I haven’t received a call back yet.  I have been in Canada for 20 years, worked and paid taxes in Montreal. After my Refugee file was denied I waited two years at the same apartment and never got the Pre Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA) form. So I moved and now I live in Ontario. I now have a Humanitarian and Compassionate claim filed at the Case Processing Centre in Mississauga, for almost two years now.

I know I can try to appeal to the Federal Court but it is very expensive. I do not want to go back to Commonwealth of Dominica. I haven’t been there since I was 16 years old.  What is your advice?

With an immigration history like yours and what appears to be an deportation order issued against you, your only option is to file an appeal to the Federal Court and ask them to Stay or “Freeze” your removal from Canada pending your Humanitarian and Compassionate Application. You should retain a lawyer to assist you with this as Federal court matters are complicated.

Migrating is a hard task for anyone. Finding a job is even harder. Once I got a job offer, things started moving rapidly. So, I called used VisaPlace (Niren and associates) to assist with the process. Rania and Richard deserve the utmost respect in getting the job done. They have been patient with me and some set backs. Very professional.! Hands down, money was well spent. Thanks Rania and Richard, you make an awesome team. You'll definitely have a repeat customer with me !! I was very impressed at how well they were organized and had a positive experience. Very good and professional work led to a successful outcome. I highly recommend using VisaPlace.
