How to deal with Spousal Sponsorship refusal by Canada Immigration?

My Spousal Sponsorship Application was refused, what can I do?

You have two (2) options.

You may chose to start the process all over again by re-applying.
Or, you may choose to file an Appeal of the refusal at the Immigration Appeal Division. If you are the Sponsor, you have 30 days from the day you received the refusal letter to file the Notice of Appeal.

Re-applying and appealing the refusal both contain different legal consequences and it is important that you consult with a lawyer to understand these options properly.
