Another program that CIC – Citizenship and Immigration Canada that improved is the issuance of Multiple Visa Entry for Canadian Visitors. This strategic move will attract economic growth by tourism to Canada. Small and big enterprises  including  Canada as a country will benefit on the results of loosening up visitor’s visa and offering multiple visas to those who qualify.

Today, the Office of CIC released an announcement that “Visitors to Canada will automatically be considered for a multiple-entry visa, starting on February 6, 2014. Multiple-entry visas allow qualified visitors to come and go from Canada for six months at a time for up to 10 years without having to reapply each time.”

 It is important to note that processing fees for TRV – Temporary Resident Visa has been reduced from $150 CAN to $100 CAN. This applies to either single entry or multiple entry.

Same Sex Marriage Equality is a Recognition of Loving & Caring Relationships Among Individuals

The US Supreme Court has issued its ruling on two controversial issues that divided Americans for many years.

In June 26, 2013, the American LGBT Citizens gained equal respect, rights and privileges to their counterparts in the American Society within the Federal Level of government.   The Supreme Court Judges removed the second class classification that was provided to the LGBT Citizens and recognized all Same-Sex Marriages in all states that allowed marriages, as equal to their counterparts among heterosexuals.

“This ruling is a victory for couples who have long fought for equal treatment under the law; for children whose parents’ marriages will now be recognized, rightly, as legitimate; for families that, at long last, will get the respect and protection they deserve; and for friends and supporters who have wanted nothing more than to see their loved ones treated fairly and have worked hard to persuade their nation to change for the better” – Pres Obama

“DOMA is unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment,” “The federal statue is invalid” wrote Justice Kennedy.

A New York City immigration judge, Barbara Nelson, immediately adjourned Brooks’ deportation hearing after reading the Supreme Court ruling, specifically section 3 of DOMA which recognized only marriages between a man and a woman and granted federal benefits to such marriages. By striking down Section 3, the Supreme Court has allowed same-sex couples to receive more than 1,000 federal benefits and entitlements linked to marriage status.

It’s not just a generation gap that explains the profound shift, pollsters are discovering — even some older Americans are changing their minds about gay marriage, as are citizens in rural areas, from religious backgrounds and in traditionally conservative jurisdictions.

All Five Justices who demonstrated their decision in removing the discriminatory parts of DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) will be remembered in the annals of history. They stood for the people who were being discriminated by such Law, that was signed in 1996 by then President Bill Clinton, of which he recently expressed regret and advocated the Supreme Court’s invalidation.

President Obama and his administration will be appreciated forever by Same-Sex Marriages including their families, friends and communities.

Where do we go from here?

In addition to our rich US History, today it illustrated that we have achieved another significant level of respect and dignity – Marriage Equality. While everyone do not agree to the Supreme Court Ruling, it is important to celebrate the correction of a wrong doing. The most important is the federal recognition of the same-sex marriages that exist within communities, will now have equal treatment with the heterosexual marriages. Same-Sex Spouses are now publicly documented in any legal documentations for both federal and state (where same-sex marriage is allowed) governments.

“So we welcome today’s decision, and I’ve directed the Attorney General to work with other members of my Cabinet to review all relevant federal statutes to ensure this decision, including its implications for Federal benefits and obligations, is implemented swiftly and smoothly.” – President Obama

A Salute to Everyone involved, who participated hard in this discrimination fight. Prayers to the souls of those who were discriminated, lost their lives and did not see today’s invalidation of DOMA.
