Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Government to shut the door for PR for caregivers

Jenny's Question to the House of Commons, on Friday February 9th, 2018:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, the Liberals are quietly going ahead with the Conservatives' plan to shut the door for permanent residency for caregivers, meaning if their two-year work requirement is not completed prior to November 29, 2019, they are out of luck.

There is often abuse in the program against caregivers, sometimes forcing them to end their work before the contract is completed. That means some will not be able to complete the 24-month work requirement. Does the minister think that is fair, or will he take action to ensure that caregivers are not penalized? Does he not agree that if people are good enough to work, they are good enough to stay?"
