Abstract

Many of the students have waited years to be reunited with their families.
The average wait was seven years, but a trio of youngsters from the Philippines have waited 17 years to re-join as a family.
“I can’t even imagine what it’s like to be separated from your families, particular from your parents, for up to 17 years,” said Borrowman.
The temporary foreign worker program does not allow workers to have families stay with them in Canada.
