the agent said' Based on the assessment of your information, including your request, the
supporting documentation and the information you provided during the interview, I am not
convinced that your marriage to your respondent is genuine or that it has not been established for
needs of acquiring permanent resident status in Canada.

1. If it was an out of Canada spousal sponsorship, you will be sent a copy of the refusal letter and the instructions on how to appeal the decision to the Immigration Appeal Division. You have 30 days after the date of the receipt of the refusal to appeal.
2. Here is some information from the Appeal Division on how the appeal works: https://irb-cisr.gc.ca/en/filing-immigration-appeal/Pages/immapp-a1.aspx

Hi,


Only spouses or partners who submitted outland sponsorship under the Family Class to CPC Sydney can appeal

Right to appeal — visa refusal of family class

63 (1) A person who has filed in the prescribed manner an application to sponsor a foreign national as a member of the family class may appeal to the Immigration Appeal Division against a decision not to issue the foreign national a permanent resident visa.

I believe that if the couple made an inland sponsorship, they probably need to resubmit the application or seek the federal court decision to review the initial decision instead of appealing to the Immigration Appeal Division

I believe there is a certain deadline where an applicant can appeal a decision. You may need to contact a lawyer https://www.legalaid.on.ca/lawyers-legal-professionals/for-refugee-and-immigration-lawyers/


Thanks
