Stories From Immigrants Stuck in the Waiting List

When we hear about the government legislating away the applicants on the waiting list, we only hear about numbers. The waiting list is 280,000 applicants long, and applications older than four years will be legislated away to the tune of $130 million in application fees refunded.

After that, they’ll have to start over.

But hopeful immigrants to Canada are much more than just another number. They’re people with lives and families, all of which has been effectively put on pause because it’s an easy solution for the government.

Canadian media service PostMedia News has been in contact with just a few of these immigrants via e-mail, publishing their stories online today.

These stories are heartfelt, and these immigrants are disappointed and feel lied to.

Spectacular experience. Completely smooth process, they were able to answer any of my questions any time and I had peace of mind throughout the application time, which was invaluable. I have recommended them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications, and will continue to do so. Worth every penny.
