In Committee from the House of Commons - Citizenship and Immigration - March 25, 2014


The committee continues its study on strengthening the protection of women in our immigration system, with a focus on the unique challenges that face sponsored women. The witnesses argue that the language requirements and the two-year conditionality on sponsorship are ineffective violence-protection measures. Forming the first panel of witnesses are Amel Belhassen (Table de concertation des organismes au service des personnes réfugiées et immigrantes), Queenie Choo (S.U.C.C.E.S.S.), and Debbie Douglas (Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants).

Forming the second panel of witnesses are Marie-Josée Duplessis (Collectif des femmes immigrantes du Québec), Saman Ahsan (Girls Action Foundation), and Claudia Andrea Molina (Cabinet Molina Inc.). (March 25, 2014)
