Machel Rayner is a fitness man. Growing to help people be healthy and in good condition.
However, on Thursday, after informing CBC News on immigration issues, it attracted national attention and received job offers from different sectors.
"RNC [Royal Newfoundland Constabulary] They called me and they offered me the recruitment process because they want someone like me, "he said Friday.
Similar offers were made by small businesses in John. Rayner said the sheriff even reached his office in Gander.
Memorial University's Human Kinetics and Recreation School has created a fundraising campaign to help the former student with financial difficulties.
"It was wonderful, wonderful feedback and support from all walks of life … I know many people I work with, they support me. But that was the best feeling I've ever had."
Originally from Trenchtown, Jamaica, 31-year-old Rayner, for eight years and two months. He lived in John.
He was in the final stages of completing his permanent residence this fall and said he accidentally broke his chances of staying in Canada.
Rayner was part of a candidate program where Newfoundland and Labrador's government were candidates to increase immigration and fill labor shortages.
If you're a Newfoundlander, you're all behind you.– Machel Rayner.
After losing some of his salary in John's personal training job, Rayner said he decided to temporarily seek work in Halifax.
He said the state has left the job – temporarily – but it has been automatically removed from Rayner, Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Candidate Program.
He left him with a number of options, including an appeals hearing that could have resulted in him being banned from his country for five years.
Without a job, Rayner felt he had no choice but to go back to Jamaica and reapply with a federal program. It would be a move, he said, financially, crippling him and his family.
Take a break
After telling his story, Rayner asked a state government employee to say that restrictions on the work permit were lifted. Now he can find work anywhere in the state.
His lawyer, Meghan Felt, said it was an uncommon move and that Rayner was a great gift.
On Friday afternoon, both state and federal governments told Rayner that they were discussing the events behind the events and a protest in January was put on hold.
Iyi The work permit is now good; Because I can continue to support my family and I can continue on. çünkü
"Newfoundlanders are the gift of God to this world. They have their back in any way. If you're a Newfoundlander, you're all behind you.
There are rules for a reason
Felt, a partner in McInnes Cooper, who specializes in immigration law, said that Rayner's rule for breaking down by working in Halifax exists for some reason.
He said the idea of a state candidate program was to keep the person in the province, but that would not always happen.
Machel is exactly the type of person Canada wants.– Meghan Felt
Felt, "Once upon a time, once their permanent residences were taken, they would leave for other cities and not contribute to our province here." Said.
If the appeal proceedings continue in January, Felt will represent Rayner.
"Machel is exactly the type of person Canada wants. It's young, well-trained and speaks English."
Rayner's other option is to pass a federal express entry program that can see the country in about six months.
Felt said the Atlantic Immigrant Pilot Program is another option, but has a trading time of between nine and 10 months.
Machel Rayner was at 1:30 am before bedtime after a full day of support calls and support messages.
There was one last person to tell: her mother returned to Jamaica and her mother, Linda, prayed that she didn't have to go back.
"With tears in his voice, he said," Thank you, Jesus, thank you, Jesus, thank you, Jesus. You answered my prayers, "Rayner said.
"He was crumbling and he said," God has answered his prayer and will continue to pray to see it. "
Despite support and good wishes, Rayner said he is still thinking about the stress of having to leave Canada.
”Now I trust this support more,“ he said. "But he could go the other way anyway."
But the goal remains the same. After years of calling herself a Newfoundlander and a Canadian, she wants to make a picture with her citizenship.
"There will be a moment for my mother … if she is still there. I have to work fast to bring her here."
