The Minister of Immigration is coming to the Region of Waterloo next week (Thursday) to hear about any ideas to improve the Immigration System. I want to ask you to share your ideas in the comment section below so that I can present them to the Minister on your behalf! I want your voices to be heard, loud and clear!
This is an invitation to you, as supporters and fans, to share your ideas for improving our immigration system.
Appreciate the opportunity.
I am a Canadian Citizen and an electrical engineer. As I many time brought up this issue to your office attention. I have never seen a country which gives Permanent Residence (PR) and then takes it away.
My Mom is a Canadian PR. She had her PR card for renewal at the immigration offices in Niagara, Ontario. She had to return to Iran a week before she gets her PR card back. She had to stay in Iran for a longer period of time than anticipated due to my father sickness. She can’t come back to Canada now.
Canada has no diplomatic ties with Iran. Immigration Canada is asking a 78 years old woman to go to one of those dangerous countries around Iran to obtain a travel document to be able to come back to Canada. She can’t also come back as a visitor unless she denies her Canadian PR which would make things even more complicated.
I find this really horrible and unjust. I am very upset about this. I haven’t seen my Mom for a very long time. I think Canada should allow these people to use their country of origin passport with proof of Canadian immigration to return to Canada.
My Mom has given me signed authority to be her representative in immigration cases but Ms. S Brady from Niagara Falls immigration office denies these rights.

My question for the Minister…What are his plans for international students?, will any adjustments be made to accommodate international students in the express entry program?..
