EDMONTON – A paralyzed former temporary foreign worker Canada has been granted a two-year work permit that voids her deportation order and allows her to stay in Edmonton.
“I have two years I don’t need to worry every night, wake up in the morning, that maybe they’re just going to deport me,” Vicky Venancio said in an interview.
“It’s really a big relief to know that I can stay here legally[as a temporary foreign worker Canada].
At the Alberta legislature Sunday, Health Minister Sarah Hoffman said Venancio will now have access to much-needed pain medication and X-rays.
“What she needed was to have legal status to stay in Canada,” Hoffman said. “Now that the federal government has authorized that, we can give her the health care support that she is so rightfully entitled to.”
Hoffman met with the 29-year-old earlier this month, and later contacted the federal department of Citizenship and Immigration Canada to encourage the new work permit, she said.
“You can’t help but feel inspired by her strength,” Hoffman said. “She is such a strong woman to become a quadriplegic and have it happen when you’re halfway around the world.
