            Work permit holder

  • We are writing this Demand letter as part of the voices to grant permanent residence status to Workers Refugees and Students in Canada. Canada is recognised as one of the leading countries for the protection of human rights and recognises the value of Workers and Students and their contribution in the growth of Canadian economy.
  • We have learned great experience about Canadian work etiquettes.  Based on our work experience in Canada, we understand working requirements and job expectations of the industry. Moreover, we gained experience about customs of other cultures and living in diverse community with a habit of caring and respect for each other. We are willing to work and relocate anywhere in Canada. Our aim is to work hard and make a larger contribution in Canada’s economic growth.
  • COVID-19 has unprecedentedly brought challenges to Workers, including those who are currently working in Canada or have previously worked in Canada.
  • Whoever is working in Canada or has worked in Canada on closed work permit or based on Labour Market Impact Assessment (“LMIA”) during COVID-19, if their work permits have expired, they should be given open work permit until permanent residence status is granted to them.
  • Whoever is working or has worked in Canada on closed work permit or based on Labour Market Impact Assessment (“LMIA”) during COVID-19, if their work permits are expired, they should be given open work permit until they will get permanent residence status.
  • Whoever is working or has worked in Canada on closed work permit or based on LMIA, during COVID-19, if their work permits are expired, their children should be allowed to attend and complete remaining study or course year in Canada and their parents should be given open work permits until they get permanent residence status.
  • Whoever is working or has worked in Canada on closed work permit or based on LMIA during COVID-19, if their work permits are expired, they should be given Canadian permanent residence status solely based on their Canadian work experience, so they are allowed to continually contribute in Canadian economy.
  • Whoever is working or has worked in Canada on closed work permit or based on LMIA, are continually supporting Canadian economy in many ways as paying taxes GST, PST and contributing to CPP. They have been renting apartments, own cars and paying car insurances, spending money in local stores, their children are studying in Canada and they are more likely to be good citizens like other Canadians.
  • Whoever is working or has worked in Canada on closed work permit or based on LMIA, during the outbreak of COVID-19 and helped others, their services to Canada and Canadian should be recognised and based on their services they should be granted permanent residence status in Canada.
  • This fact cannot be denied that Workers have played increasingly important role in the Canadian labour market. Close to 470,000 foreign nationals have been issued work permit in the year 2019 as compared to 390,000 in 2018 and 340,000 in 2017, referred

             Refugees

  • It is a well-known fact in the whole world that Canada promotes and supports the protection of human rights. Refugees come to Canada for protection and stability in their lives. Refugees have faced torture and have been traumatized in their own countries. It is not good feeling for anyone to permanently abandon their homeland.
  • Refugees came to Canada for better life and they were, and they are still ready to do any work assigned to them. Several Refugees have been accepted and granted permanent residence status in Canada but Refugees, who are still waiting for the determination of their refugee claims have been temporary settled and they are still significantly contributing to Canadian economy.
  • Refugee claimants have good jobs, they have opened and are operating their own businesses. They rent houses, apartments, own cars, pay insurance, taxes and their children are attending schools and also learning about Canadian cultural values. Refugees are directly and indirectly contributing in Canadian economy. It is evident that many former Refugees have built successful business empires in Canada and are continually supporting Canadian economy.
  • Grant of permanent residence status to Refugees- based on their Canadian work experience
  • We are demanding that Refugees should be given permanent residence status without their claims hearing and based on their one year working experience in Canada in light of COVID-19. With additional conditions for example, full time permanent job offer, paying all taxes, able to meet out their financial responsibilities, bearing good moral character, offered voluntarily services to community and ready and willing to relocate and work anywhere in Canada. At the end and most important condition-having no criminal record in Canada.

             Students

  • Students choose Canada as their destination to pursue studies and in the past most of them have permanently settled here in Canada. Students are paying higher tuition fees in comparison to Canadian students. They are playing major role in order to meet out the shortage of labour for the local businesses, where labour is not easily available.
  • Many Students are working or have worked to support Canadian businesses during the outbreak of COVID-19. Their services to Canada and Canadian businesses during the difficult time has proved that they deserve to be given permanent residence status as they worked and cared to Canadians.
  • We are writing this demand letter with the hope that the Workers, Refugees and Students those who are currently working in Canada or have previously worked in Canada, their sincere and hard work during the outbreak of COVID-19 should be recognised by Canadian government and their status in Canada should be regularized by granting them the status of permanent residence.
  • By signing this petition, I consent to disclose my name, contact information to any authority in Canada.
