Quebec solidaire wants to regularize the status of 10,000 immigrants in 2023

Solidaire Québec, which participated in the rally, intends to regularly organize 10,000 people in the first year of this program, the eligibility criteria to be established with the federal government.

This project will contribute to significantly improving the living conditions of immigrants and children and adolescents, allowing them, among other things, to complete their education in Quebec. Currently, young people who have a precarious status – that is, those who do not have refugee status or permanent residency – cannot be enrolled in CEGEP or university.

They speak French, they completed their secondary education here, they are on sports teams, they are successful. […] These young people are Canadian, those are Quebecers. They have to settle as soon as possible for permanent residence so that they can focus on their development and future, argued Guillaume Cliche-Rivard, the new MP for Saint-Henri-Sainte-Anne and an immigration lawyer, in an interview.

For Andrés Fontecilla, deputy MP for Laurier-Dorion, the situation is extremely painful.

“There is a double speed society that is being created now: people who have rights and status and everyone who lives in darkness and invisibility. […] We need a political solution that comes from the federal government but is also accepted by the CAQ government. »

Young immigrants have also testified to their fear of being at risk of deportation.

I love the school, my colleagues and my life here. I am an athlete and I won competitions in Quebec. But now I’m finishing high school and I’m afraid I won’t be able to continue my studies and go to CEGEP. I fear lest my house and I should perish [expulsés] while all his life is present, Hardeepe (not really his name), 19
