A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday morning in the case of a family scheduled to be deported to Egypt a few days later.
The family of four from Verdun is hoping to stay in Canada after living here for 8 years.
However, two young Canadian daughters of the Khalifa family can stay.
Their father, Tarek, says leaving them behind is not an option and hopes things go their way.
"They understand. Suddenly I found them understanding everything and asking me, why they hate us and why they want us to go to Egypt. We should talk with them. This was the word from my daughter", said Khalifa in an interview with CTV News.
The parents have applied for personal residency, but it's been turned down.
They point to improper legal advice and serious application mistakes.
Deportation is set for next Friday.
