The government’s decision only adds to the frustration of these applicants, who have to wait years before they are finally allowed to enter Canada.

“They feel like they don’t want to apply to another country, they’re committed to Canada, and yet their lives are on hold," says David Rosenblatt, a Canadian Immigration lawyer with Rosenblatt Immigration Law.

The Jack Project, an organization that was created in memory of an 18 year-old who died by suicide, has found an innovative way to help young people deal with mental health issues. It has launched the first ever student-inspired and student-led Student Mental Health Innovation Summit.

"What astonishes us is how much the people care, how real the issue feels for them and how much they are embracing the need to talk about it and find some solutions themselves. And Unleash the Noise is a great example of that."
