The Canadian federal government is all set to introduce changes to the existing immigration system, said John McCallum, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, on 13 July during his visit to Peel region.
McCallum was visiting this region as part of the countrywide consultation process of the government to put in place crucial changes to the immigration policy the Liberal Party had pledged when campaigning for elections in 2015.
He met the members of parliament and others to talk about immigration-related issues in Brampton and Mississauga. Reportedly topping their priority was family class immigration procedure. McCallum was quoted by the Mississauga News as saying that it takes a married couple about two years to get together, which was not acceptable. He said that a system was passed on to them by the previous government which is causing concerns and they were trying to address it by putting in place a better policy. This system is likely to be introduced in fall.
The Markham-Thornhill MP said that they wanted to make the process of settling of economic immigrants along with refugees and family class more efficient. They would make it much more convenient for foreign students to attain permanent residency status, added Thornhill. It was their endeavour to see to it that foreign students would find it easier to come to Canada than go to other countries such as the US, the UK and Australia.
McCallum said that foreign students were on their government’s priority list to become Canada’s permanent residents as they are young, literate and had fluency in English or French.
If you are also willing to migrate to Canada, which is pitching itself as the most-immigrant-friendly country, come down to Y-Axis and get assistance and guidance to file for an appropriate visa at one of its 19 offices located across India.
