"Conditional Permanent Residences" could place women at risk

Just one day prior to the dissolution of Parliament, the Conservative government proposed "Conditional Permanent
Residences" for sponsored spouses. This proposed measure would apply to spouses and partners who have been in a relationship with their sponsor for two years or less at the time of the sponsorship application. These sponsored partners would have an imposed period of conditional status for two years or longer from the time that the sponsored spouse or partner becomes a permanent resident in Canada, with the threat of revocation of their permanent residency if CIC believes they do not remain in a "bona fide" relationship. If passed, this proposal will place women in particular at an increased risk for spousal and partner abuse. No One is Illegal is looking for support for opposing this proposal.
