Principle Established: Entrepreneurs have to stick to their business plan
The applicant and his family obtained permanent resident visa under the entrepreneur class. Their business plan was to set up a perfume shop. However, after arriving in Canada, they realized that the perfume shop was not a viable venture. Instead, they invested in a web design company and later bought a café. Neither of the businesses was successful.
They filed an appeal against their removal order, issued by the IAD, requesting for humanitarian and compassionate considerations.
The Court highlighted that the applicants failed to satisfy their conditions of admission to Canada. The Court explained that its role is not to re-weigh evidence submitted to the IAD which had already been taken into consideration.
The application for judicial review was dismissed.
