Canadian Federal Court supported visa officer’s study permit refusal decision

On October 20, 2021, the Federal Court of Canada dismissed the judicial review of the application of a Russian citizen who applied for a study permit and got rejected.

Natalia Bondarenko intended to complete an English language study program in Calgary, and then take a two-year Business Administration diploma program.

Then, the applicant applied for a study permit. But after getting a refusal, she sought judicial review of a Visa Officer’s decision. However, the Canadian Federal Court supported the officer’s decision, found it out reasonable.

The Applicant provided a letter from her employer which “strongly encouraged” her to take a course in Canada and pointed out an intention to consider re-hire her after returning to Russia.

The Court did not consider this as a promise to re-hire and agreed with the officer’s conclusion that the Applicant had weak financial ties to her country.
