Tears of Happiness


An old adage says that a tear is 1% water and 99% feelings. When Casimiro Eslao Jr knew that he could not anymore extend his permit to work in Canada, his tears were 100% sadness.

Casimiro arrived in Canada in 2009 to work as a machine operator. His wife and two daughters joined him in 2012. Before his work permit expired last February 2015, he tried to renew it. But due to the four-year limit that foreigners could work in Canada, his efforts proved unsuccessful. The threat of unemployment and the possibility that his whole family would be required to leave Canada drove Casimiro to tears.

Casimiro found hope in Carl Benito, who helped him apply for Permanent Residence (PR) just a few weeks before his Work Permit expired. Carl is an Edmonton-based immigration consultant who used to serve as a Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) of the Province of Alberta. Casimiro thought that Carl was the answer to his prayers. Carl did not only help Casimiro apply for PR but also for an Open Work Permit. Both applications were approved in a matter of months.

When Casimiro finally received the approval of his PR and Open Work Permit applications last June 2015, it drove him to tears again. This time, the tears were 100% happiness.
