Many Filipinos already live in Canada. A lot of them brought their families with them.
But not everyone knows how they started living in a foreign country. How did they able to begin their lives away from their home, friends, and the culture they grow up with.
In a film made by the 90th Parallel Productions, Filipino newcomers in Canada showed their 1st 150 days there as immigrants.
48-year-old Melona Banico, who’s lived in Canada for eight years, through an immigration lawyer. A single mother who was then working in a Toronto café sponsored her children: her 26-year-old daughter, Judelyn; 24-year-old son, Jade; 14-year-old daughter, Jeah; and 10-year-old grandson, Clyde.
At first, the family's reunion was exciting for them. The children were seen excited seeing snow for the first time.
But reality came in, they had arguments because of some issues they are facing in the foreign land.
Melona needs to feed her children, she wanted them to help her with the expenses but they couldn't find jobs. They don't have enough money to go out and they don't have friends there too. Jeah and Clyde had trouble in school, due to the language barrier.
They wanted to go back to the Philippines if they had a chance.
And Melona even regretted the sponsorship.
Fortunately, the one who's covering their story is an immigrant as well and she helped them understand the life of an immigrant. She told them her own experiences and how life was hard too for her.
According to the article of TVO, the family wanted everyone to show how newcomers dealt with difficulties of life in Canada. And as of now, Banico family is doing well. They are hopeful about their lives there.
