Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: Reunify families awaiting Spousal Sponsorship Applications & Extend paid maternity leave

On September 24, 2020, I rose to table two petitions to the House:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, I have two petitions that I would like to table today. The first is signed by over 2,600 Canadians and calls on the government to extend paid maternity leave for a minimum of three months for mothers in Canada during the pandemic, and noting that many of them are not receiving adequate health care due to the redirection of these health resources as a result of COVID-19. As well, many are not able to get affordable, quality child care at this time. As such, the petitioners note that COVID-19 has significantly impacted their physical and mental health and call on the government to allow mothers who are currently on 12 months of maternity leave the option of switching to 18 months of maternity leave."
