Is a mother's right to bring her children to Canada in order to bring them to Canada?

Canada (Federal), Canada

The following excerpt is from Begum v. Canada (Citizenship and Immigration), 2018 FCA 181 (CanLII), [2019] 2 FCR 488:

The right to nurture a child and to make fundamental decisions for it, such as medical care, clearly falls within the core of what it means to enjoy individual dignity and independence. It is not at all clear to me that the right claimed by the appellant to bring her parents and siblings to live in Canada is of the same nature. While I appreciate how important it may be for the appellant to be able to live close to her parents and siblings, I am not convinced that such an interest is so intertwined with the “intrinsic value of human life” and “the inherent dignity of every human being” (Rodriguez v. British Columbia (Attorney General), 1993 CanLII 75 (SCC), [1993] 3 S.C.R. 519 at p. 585).
