That's good confirmation. Thank you.
A third area that we've had difficulty with in Canada, in my own riding, is on the topic of family reunification. We hear very plaintively from refugees who've come to Canada. They cannot relax in this country while they know that their family is still in danger. They can't completely settle.
I have a constituent named Fatima. She and her two daughters were refugees from Eritrea. Once they had come to Canada as refugees, sponsored by the neighbourhood church in Nanaimo, which has been terrific at supporting them, they found that the father of the family who they thought had been killed in the civil war in fact was alive. They've now been waiting years since then. They can't get a timeline within our system about when his processing will be complete. At this point, her daughters are starting to say to her, “We don't even believe that our father is still alive. There's no evidence of him.” This is one example of a big heartache in the community.
Do you have examples of programs that can shorten and facilitate the family reunification process to avoid that dislocation?
