Federal Court of Appeal

Jackett, C.J., MacKay, D.J.

and Sweet, D.J.

June 27, 1974.

Summary:

This case arose out of an application by an alien for permanent residence in Canada. At the time of the application the alien was a student who was admitted into Canada as a non-immigrant student for one year. The student applied to the Toronto, Ontario Immigration Office for permanent residence. The student's application was reported to a Special Inquiry Officer pursuant to s. 7(3) of the Immigration Act. The Special Inquiry Officer made a deportation order respecting the student.

On appeal to the Federal Court of Appeal, pursuant to s. 28 of the Federal Court Act, the appeal was allowed and the deportation order was set aside. The Federal Court of Appeal stated that s. 7(3) of the Immigration Act had no application to the student because the student at the time of his application for permanent residence was not a person seeking admission to Canada for purposes of s. 7(3).
