If your application was deemed ineligible by the SINP and you believe that an error was made during application processing or in the assessment of the application based on the criteria at the time of application then you may request a second review.
Second reviews are based on the information contained in the original application. As a result, you may not submit new supporting documents unless a processing or procedural error was made by the SINP that resulted in the information not being considered in the original assessment.
Please note that you can only have one application in process at any time which means that if you have submitted a new application to the SINP while a second review is underway, you will need to cancel your application for second review in order to have the new application accepted for assessment.
To request a second review, you must submit the Request for a Second Review Form by email to firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of the date that the SINP issued the ineligible letter. Your signed form must clearly state your reason for a second review.
- A request for a second review will not be considered if your request is made and received after 30 days of the day the SINP issued your ineligible letter.
- A request for a second review may be denied if you cannot justify your reason for the review. If your request is accepted, a second review case will be created and you will be notified by email that your application has been placed under second review.
- Applications under second review will be subject to second review procedures and processing times that are calculated from when the request is received. Second review processing times vary depending on the volume of the requests received and the inventory level of applications under review. Once the review is complete then you will be notified of the second review decision by email.
If the ineligible decision is overturned through a second review, your application may be approved for a nomination, or additional or updated information may be required from you in order to conclude the review.
If the ineligible decision is upheld after the second review, then the file will be closed. There is no further appeal or review of this application.
Immigration representatives can represent active applications, which include applications in process and applications with a valid nomination, and applications which have been rejected or refused prior to the deadline for a second review request.
