Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Caregivers deserve PR status

On November 21, 2018, Jenny rose to speak in support of families and caregivers:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, the Minister of Immigration has left families and caregivers in the dark for months on what will replace the current caregiver program.

This week, migrant workers' rights groups released a report calling on the minister to ensure caregivers would finally be given the respect and security they deserve. Experts and caregivers have been clear for decades. If they are good enough to work here, they are good enough to stay. There should be no more delay tactics.

Will the Prime Minister do what is right and commit to providing caregivers permanent resident status on arrival?"
