    Oh Canada!

    Say:

    My goal at the time was to have my own distribution company, but the Canadian government rejected my claim for asylum before I could achieve that goal. I got a departure order from the Canadian government, and I had to return to my home country, Indonesia. I cooperated with the Canadian government throughout the process (2010-2014). That means I have not been deported, and I can return to Canada in a normal manner.

    Re: Oh Canada!

    Please do not crowd too much into one sentence. It can make the sentence hard to read and confusing.

    I like to write double digits as numbers:

    In any case, "35" should not be written as one word.

    I would normally write that as a number myself.
