Hang in there algrn ! it is so frustrating... each of us are going thru challenging time in the PR process.
I don't get the logic why they dont give TRV for spouses to even visit. And how they can give work permit for spouses of temporary foreign workers and students but not to spouses of canadian citizens and pr holders ? won't these people misuse and stay in Canada illegally?
do they trust them more to leave the country when their visa or work permit expires ? PR applicants are even denied health care due to this.
if i plan to enter the country and stay here illegally, i would do it as a visitor, i will not go through the head ache of marrying a PR or citizen and try to gain entry.
As a PR applicant - inland or outland, an open work permit should be given plus the health care. the same as for spouses of foreign workers and students. if PR is denied, then they can take the necessary action if the applicant is violating any rule. in this way honest applicants will not be affected. even the fraudulent ones will be caught eventually. the current system is not fool proof either. i am sure there r fraudsters making their way into Canada even now.
this will result in a happier Canada, better economic growth. less frustrated minds. less crimes.
more workers means more tax money. with that they can continue with background checks and invest their resources in removing people for any violation.
