Children from a previous marriage of age to 22 years who are dependent on the mother, are eligible for permanent resident status on a par with their mother. In principle, dependent mother's children are entitled to receive permanent residence status the same after 22 years. For example, it extends to university students. As a condition of entry - the presence of the sponsor, it also applies to children of a spouse of a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, but if they do not fall under the status of dependents. Moreover, the mother in this case can not be a sponsor, because her husband is the sponsor. The attitude towards foreigners in general and to the Russian in particular in Canadian schools is more than loyalty. The country of immigrants, Canada has declared a democratic approach in the absence of any discrimination on grounds of country of origin. This is not only an official position of the authorities. At the domestic level is considered improper to divide people on any grounds: color, the presence of an accent, etc.
In principle, despite the absence of even the slightest discrimination, our children have a lot of another problems in Canada. The language barrier is not the biggest of these problems. The difference in mentality, a very different rhythm of life and lifestyle, unusual school rules and other household characteristics often lead to the psychoses and nervous breakdowns. In Canadian schools,(you might wonder), is not uncommon fights. The clarify the relationship between classmates is a common thing. As newcomers to any children's group became the object of "raids" and targeting of the life of a child often turns into a living hell. Especially it is often if the class has a lot of people from the East.
Teachers try not to intervene without good cause in relation of the class. A strong reason may be even the bruised or scratched, torn clothing or just tears. As in Russian schools teachers primarily engaged in the prevention of conflict and try to make the class friendly and united as much as possible. But the Canadian teachers think and attitude to these at least strange. They are quite concerned about the tensions between pupils, and some consider it a manifestation of competition, which will help children in futurelife.
That is why the most of Russian children, especially in the early years of Canadian life, need the assistance of qualified therapist. And also a good way, for your child will be a telephone communication with friends who stayed in Russia.
