One of our family members, an Indian citizen female with valid visit visa and with exceptional approval from Canadian

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: One of our family members, an Indian citizen female with valid visit visa and with exceptional approval from Canadian Embassy in New Delhi has travelled from India to Montreal last evening. She is accompanied with her 2.5 year old daughter, a Canadian citizen (born in Toronto). Purpose of her visit is to drop off her daughter with her legal guardians in Toronto in line with PM Trudeau’s directives to all Canadians to come home given the current COVID-19 pandemic. Since she has only a valid visit visa to Canada, she cleared up with authorities in Delhi Canadian Embassy and holds valid letter of exceptional approval for essential travel to Canada with her daughter.
It so happens that she is currently pregnant and CBSA at Montreal airport has taken the view that her purpose of visit is non-essential and she is here to deliver her baby as opposed to helping to repatriate a Canadian Citizen (her daughter) home as directed by PM Trudeau calling for all Canadian citizens to come home given the COVID-19 pandemic.
She has been asked to come back to Montreal airport tomorrow May 5, 2020 at 8 PM and present herself to CBSA officer for “further examination”.
We are looking to contract a lawyer expert in this area who can get on the case immediately and represent/advise her in tomorrow’s further examination by CBSA officer.
JA: What steps has the daughter taken? Have they filed any paperwork with the U.S. government?
Customer: We are dealing with Canada Border Services at Montreal airport
JA: Has she talked to a lawyer about the visa?
Customer: No , not yet, we are trying to contract a lawyer who can review the case help immediately.
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: That's all , we can give further detail as we speak

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

The lawyers on this site cannot act for your family member but she can check on a site called lexpert. This is a legal directory of leading lawyers and law firms throughout Canada and is well-respected by the legal community.

Here's the link to their website:

http://www.lexpert.ca/directory/find-lawyers-or-law-firms/

Does that help as a starting point?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
