VANCOUVER — Citizenship and Immigration Canada has reversed its decision to deny permanent residency to the 14-year-old daughter of a Vancouver caregiver from the Philippines because she is deaf.
This means Jazmine Talosig will likely be able to join her mother, Karen Talosig, in Vancouver, after seven years of separation.
Talosig received a letter from C.I.C.’s Manila office early Wednesday stating that her visas for permanent residency were ready to be issued, subject to a final admissibility review by an immigration officer.
“I’m over the moon,” Karen Talosig said of the decision. “I was so happy and relieved.”
