Deportation cancelled for Winnipeg family

Deportation cancelled for Winnipeg family, Vladimir Volenyuk

Thousands of new visitors every single year come to Canada and become citizens. Immigration in Canada is always was a big part of the country`s development and growth. With a great number of refugees coming into our country, the Federal Government wants to attract the brightest and hardworking young people to move to Canada and become permanent residents.

The Bonito family moved to Winnipeg from Venezuela after a home invasion in which gunmen tied the family up and threatened them. The family had been involved in anti-government protests and said they feared for their lives.

They entered the country on tourist visas and had been trying to obtain permanent residence since then. However, in late 2018 they were told they were being deported.

The Bonito family's prayers have been answered. Bonito says that on Saturday, February 16, he received a phone call from a Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) agent. The agent told him that the deportation had been canceled.

"You have no idea how happy my daughter is," Bonito said. He said he and the family are grateful for everyone who has helped and prayed for them.

The most recent statistics show that Canada has taken a leading position in the field of refugee resettlement, according to new data collected by a researcher from the University of Calgary, which raises questions about the country's role in overcoming the growing international refugee crisis.

Canada received just under 30,000 refugees in 2018, which is slightly higher than the number of displaced people in the European Union and by several thousand more than in the United States, which puts Canada on the position of historical leadership, thestar.com reports.

The Government of Canada has slightly modified the requirements for candidates applying for the Express Entry program.

1.5% increased the minimum financial requirements for candidates. If earlier it was enough to show that you have 12,474 dollars in your account (for each candidate), now this amount is 12,669 dollars.
