Judicial Review – A process through the Federal Court of Canada. You normally file for judicial review either to reopen a refused application or to speed up the processing of an application. The latter is also known as “writ of mandamus.” The federal court may not approve or refuse immigration or visa applications. However, they have the authority to ask IRCC to reopen a case or review it within a specified timeline.« Back to Glossary Index
