If you have been refused Canadian citizenship, or your application to reside in Canada was refused, you can apply to the court to seek a judicial review on the decision made. A lawyer must be appointed to apply for judicial review on your behalf.There are certain deadlines which needs to be met if you are planning on applying for a judicial review, Usually, you are required to file for a review within 15 days since you got your refusal.
Wrongful refusals may be appealed to the Federal Court of Appeal (FCA) when and if the federal court judge certifies that there is a serious question of general importance involved and stated the question. A serious question of general importance arises when the court finds an issue that transcends the interests of the parties and contemplates issues of broad significance or of general application, and that is also dispositive of the case within its jurisdiction.
An appeal can also be made to the Supreme Court of Canada if the case raises an issue of public importance.The appellant must file the notice of application for leave to appeal with the registrar of the Supreme Court within 60 days after the date of the final judgment appealed from.
