C-6法案——修改国籍法的议案正式通过

渥太华——2017年6月16日

C-6法案——修改国籍法的议案正式通过。

我于四月份提出一项修正案,确保达到所有申请标准并拥有永久居民身份的儿童,特别是弱势儿童群体享有同等申请国籍的权利。我深信加拿大有责任和义务确保儿童和青少年的权利。

感谢倡议者、学者、律师以及社区成员提起我对这个问题的重视, 并感谢他们在过去几个月里给予我的支持和建议。

我的修正案去除了入籍申请者必须年满18岁的要求,给没有父母或监护人的儿童,或者父母不能或不愿意申请的儿童提供了自己申请入籍的权利。

这项法案即将成为法律,将会给很多人的生活带来积极正面的影响。“这将是加拿大历史上增进儿童和青年权利的重要篇章。能够为此贡献一份微薄之力,我深感荣兴和喜悦。”

Ottawa – June 16, 2017

 

 

Bill C-6 awaits royal assent.

 

Under the current laws minors submitting an application with a parent or guardian or who have parent or guardian who is a citizen face no significant barriers. However, those without parents or guardians and those whose parents or guardians are unwilling or unable to apply have virtually no option but to wait until they are 18 years of age to apply on their own. The only exception is to request a waiver for a grant of citizenship on compassionate grounds from the Minister – a highly discretionary process that is simply ineffective and inappropriate.

 

My amendment would allow children and youth with a permanent resident status to submit an application for citizenship separately from a parent or a guardian. “This change would not only ensure that these minors can have a permanent and secure status in Canada, but also provide them with increased opportunities to succeed and thrive” said Senator Victor Oh.

 

“This would be a landmark moment in the history of advancing the rights of children and youth in Canada, and I am proud to have played a role in it.”
