Visa officer denied work permit to applicant — Officer was not satisfied that employment offer in Canada was genuine — Officer found documentation submitted in relation to applicant’s pre-existing employment in country of origin lacked authenticity — Applicant sought judicial review — Application dismissed — Officer’s finding of lack of authenticity in documentation relating to applicant’s employment in country of origin did not have any effect on officer’s finding of non-genuineness of job offer — Though officer relied on scant evidence to conclude offer of employment was non-genuine, lack of evidence was failing of applicant and/or prospective employer, not of officer — Officer’s finding that evidence failed to establish that prospective employer was actively engaged in business in respect of which offer of employment was made, and that offer of employment was not genuine, was reasonable
