On June 17, 2020 at the Parliament's immigration committee, NDP MP Jenny Kwan asks the minister on the opening of the parent/grandparent immigration and whether Canada is working on a plan to take immigrant/refugees from Hong Kong:
"Thank you, Madam Chair.
The parents and grandparents sponsorship program is supposed to be open for applications in January. It is now June and the government website still states:
Details and opening date for the 2020 parents and grandparents program will be posted on this site when details are confirmed.
When will this program be opened, and will the government still honour the quota for this stream this year?"
