#87 – Visa Officers and the IAD Ignoring or Disagreeing with Federal Court, with Raj Sharma

Raj Sharma is an immigration lawyer in Calgary. In Borderlines Podcast Episode 69 we discussed his case Mohammad v. Canada (Citizenship and Immigration), 2022 FC 1, in which the Federal Court quashed an Immigration Appeal Division decision, stating that the IAD did not properly give enough weight to the unique contributions that Ms. Mohammad made as a health care worker during COVID-19, and the debt that was owed to her. The IAD disagreed with the Federal Court, and Raj Sharma sought judicial review again. The case, and today’s episode, provides an insight into how redetermination works, and the degree of deference that visa officers and the IAD need to show the Federal Court.Show more
