Subject: Re-entry visa to Canada from the Philippines
  I am a live-in caregiver in Ontario, caring for an 11-year-old boy who is turning 12 in Nov. this year. It would be my 24th month as a caregiver on January 12, 2014 and will be eligible to apply for an open permit and permanent residency. However, I need to go home to the Philippines in December this year (2013) in order to attend to family matters. My employer is renewing my contract and I will be applying for a re-entry visa to Ontario, Canada. My question is, would my re-entry visa be an assurance that I would be allowed to enter Canada the second time when the person I´m caring for is already 12 years old by then? When I first entered Canada through Toronto, I was told by the Immigration Officer that a multiple re-entry visa is not an assurance that I can be allowed to re-enter Canada. Was the immigration officer just trying to bluff me? Is my contract with my employer, my work permit, and my re-entry visa sufficient enough to be allowed entry to Canada even if the boy I´m caring for is already 12 years old by then? I do not want to take the risk of going to the Philippines and lose my golden opportunity of working in Canada.

Thank you for your response. I really appreciate it.

The Immigration Officer at the airport was right. Having a contract in place and a valid visa does not give you an automatic entry into Canada.

Having everything in place, minimizes the chances of being refused of entry. In most cases is a very straight forward process but again, as a foreign worker you can still be refused of entry at the airport if there is a problem.

No bluff, the officer told you the truth.
