Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Caregiver language test questions to immigration minister at CIMM

At the parliament's Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration, MP Jenny Kwan once again raised concerns regarding the language test for caregivers:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Recently, we learned of the caregiver who committed suicide after failing the language test 26 times. If a caregiver has secure employment here, clearly they are able to communicate effectively in their work. So why do we need to make them take these extra language tests in the UK for individuals who would not be entering into more technical and professional fields, there is a shorter level 2 skilled test that could be used. If the government won't get rid of the language tests, will the minister adopt the UK model?"
