A woman in Saskatchewan and her daughter are facing deportation from Canada because her daughter has cerebral palsy. Eniko Reka Kincses and her daughter Boglarka are scheduled for deportation on January 30th.
According to the Saskatchewan Star-Phoenix, Boglarka’s disability makes her ineligible to be a permanent resident of Canada because she would place an excessive demand on social and health services in Canada.
But according to her mother, Boglarka doesn’t have any medication she needs to take, she has never used any social programs in Canada and she does not have any extraordinary healthcare needs.
Eniko has significant experience managing care homes for elderly people and people who have disabilities, and to say Canada is in extreme need of more of these homes and workers is a very big understatement. Canada’s aging population has resulted in very long wait times for beds in care homes, and many people who should be in care homes are taking up hospital beds.
Eniko originally came to Canada through the Provincial Nominee Program in Saskatchewan, sponsored by her sister and brother-in-law. Once her job ended in 2010, Eniko would have been eligible to apply for additional work permits to stay in Canada had it not been for her daughter. Originally from Romania, there is no one back home to take care of her daughter as her husband left and her parents disowned her after she decided to keep and raise Boglarka.
Eniko is going to appeal to the Federal Court of Canada and if that does not succeed, to the immigration minister.
