Definition of Work and Paid

Steven MeurrensUncategorized

In Ogundiran v. Canada (Citizenship and Immigration), 2022 FC 1397, Madam Justice Heneghan stated that in Pathway for Health Workers the definition of “paid” could include stipends. It is important to note that the Department of Justice pointed to the Help section of the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (“IRCC”) website which defines “paid” as being wages, however, Madam Justice Heneghan said that there was nothing to link that section of the Help portion of the IRCC website to the Pathway for Health Care Workers.
