This letter is a show of community support for Lanying Zhang. We have been informed  that there is a possibility of Lanying not being allowed to stay in Canada permanently  and that there is a possibility of her being removed from Canada. We want to show  Immigration Canada that removing her from Canada and separating her from the life  she has built here would be very difficult for her, her friends, her community, and her  family.  

We want to persuade Immigration Canada to consider granting Lanying permanent  residence based on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. 

Lanying first arrived in Canada in January 2013, and has been living here, adhering  to the legal and immigration requirements since then. Ever since her arrival, Lanying  has been a model resident and has become an irreplaceable part of our community.  For Lanying, after spending more than 8 years here, Canada has become her true  home, and it would be immensely hard for her, if she was forced to leave Canada. It  would be terribly hard for her to be forced to leave her aspirations and unfulfilled  potential here and go back to China. There are minimal prospects with decent wages  in terms of job opportunities in China for her, and we are asking that she please be  allowed to stay, where she belongs, here with us, in Canada. 

For Lanying, after dedicating more than 8 years towards establishing her life here,  Canada has become her true home. All her recent establishments and  accomplishments have been here. She has a young, loving, Canadian born son,  Joshua, who would be estranged to her if Lanying was forced to leave Canada. Joshua  is in the custody of his father, Jody. If Lanying is not allowed to stay in Canada, it will  force her to live away from her son, and she might not be able to see him again. We  submit that it will be a great hardship for Lanying to get separated from her son, and  she should be allowed to live in Canada. We feel the pain for having to explain to  Joshua that her mother is forced to stay away because of immigration matters. We  trust that the system would not force a devoted and loving mother away from her son.  

Moreover, Lanying is a young, bright individual. She has already become established  in the community and has demonstrated her potential to becoming great asset to the  Canadian community. She was previously gainfully employed as a nail technician at Oska Nails. Even while she is unable to work, she continues to be a contributing  member of the community. 

Our country needs people who are skilled in their field and Lanying wishes to be a  part of the progress in the field of her specialty. We, as a community, support her aspirations and her request for permanent residency status for herself. 

Lanying ‘s true home is Canada. She has worked diligently to ensure that she is a  contributing part of our community. Lanying enjoys her work very much, but if she  was forced to return to China, it would likely be very difficult for her to continue  working in the same industry. Living away from her son would cause her a lot of pain  too.

At Lanying’s age, rather than pursuing unexplored avenues, what holds dear to her is  being able to stay in the same country as Joshua and be able to meet him as often as  possible. She would be heartbroken if she had to return to China. We cannot even  imagine how difficult it would be if she is separated from her son. We feel for Joshua  who too would suffer greatly if he were to be distanced from his mother.  

Lanying is an important member of our community. She makes friends wherever she  goes and knows the importance of community involvement. Her absence would be felt  very greatly throughout the community and we would be worse off as a group if she  was forced to leave. 

Lanying is a pristine example of what Canada stands for, a rich cultural diversity.  Removing her from Canada after all her time and contribution here would be an  unspeakable hardship on her, her friends, her community, and her family. She has  been a valuable and contributing member of the society and community and has given  so much to Canada. We know that she will continue to give so much more if she is  permitted to stay. Life in China away from her son would be very difficult for her if she  was forced to return now, and we know that Canada is her true home. We do not want  to lose an exceptional individual with a caliber and potential like hers. 

As a community we support Lanying’s application for permanent residency based on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. Please allow Lanying to stay in Canada.  Every person undersigned here joins in this request. 

Thank you for your time and consideration.
