|Subject: CIC NEEDS YOUR HELP!
||Canadian Minister of Immigration Jason Kenny is requesting the Canadian peoples help in regards to feedback on the levels of Immigration to Canada. This public consultation will help the government guide its targets and policy for 2014 and onward.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
This process will consist of a series of cross country meetings with various stakeholders and special interest groups able to voice their concerns at an open forum hosted by Parliamentary Secretary Rick Dykstra. Participants in these consultations will be able to voice their views on the increasing role that economic immigration is playing in the prosperity of Canada and to the Governments move towards a faster and more flexible immigration process.
WHAT ARE THE CHALLENGES?
This process is not only fraught with great challenge as a balance must be struck between the government’s ability to process proposed increases in applications and various government commitments to the provinces / territories and other economic conditions that still plague the 2008 recovery.
IMMIGRATION IS KEY TO OUR ECONOMIC GROWTH!
Minister Kenney stressed that “since 2006, the Government of Canada has welcomes the highest sustained levels of immigration in Canadian history and given the importance of immigration to our economic growth, we are especially keen to hear the views of Canadians as we prepare for the years ahead.”
WHAT ISSUES WILL CIC BE LOOKING AT?
These consultations are a fantastic opportunity for the government to raise awareness of the benefits that immigration brings to Canada including the multitude of options that are available via CIC for the economic and social benefits of Canada.
The consultations shall be exploring a number of issues related to three main questions:
• What is the appropriate level of immigration for Canada, this year and beyond?
• What is the best ratio – or mix – between the number of economic immigrants, family class immigrants and the refugee/humanitarian class?
• Economic immigration is a key immigration goal for Canada’s long-term economic growth. What role can immigration play to support Canada’s economy?
