The Warkentin family from Waterhen are still battling to overturn a decision from Immigration Canada which denied them Permanent Resident status because of their daughter’s disability.
The family has hired Alastair Clarke, an immigration lawyer from Winnipeg to handle their case.
Clarke provides some insight to Immigration Canada’s decision.
“Unfortunately medical inadmissibility are not uncommon. Generally the individuals who face this type of issue come to me before a refusal. In this case the Warkentin family responded to the fairness letter, submitted all the evidence and then after it was refused, that’s when they came.”
If the decision cannot be reversed, the Warkentins could face moving back to the U.S. by November of this year, when their visas run out.
