Trudeau unveils Canada’s new immigration system priorities

Sean Fraser and the CICC will be governed by the mandate letter's priorities. Justin Trudeau, Canada's prime minister, has now disclosed the new mandate letters he has sent to his cabinet.

In Canada, the Prime Minister distributes mandate letters stating the priorities that the federal government expects its ministers to achieve throughout their tenure in office. The priorities are then pursued by each minister and his or her department.

Canada's immigration system is guided by the mandate letter, which is the most essential policy document. Sean Fraser, Canada's new immigration minister, and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (CICC) will be in charge of putting Trudeau's policy into action. This will have an impact on not only federal but also provincial immigration laws.

A quick rundown of Canada's new immigration priorities

Priorities revealed in the latest immigration mandate letter include:

Trudeau wants Fraser to "reduce application processing timeframes, especially to resolve delays caused by COVID-19," according to Trudeau. Create new permanent residence pathways for international students and temporary foreign workers through Express Entry.

Family reunification: Introduce electronic family reunification applications and develop a scheme to offer temporary residence to spouses and children living abroad while their permanent residence applications are processed.

Create a new Municipal Nominee Program (MNP): The MNP's goal is to foster a more diverse immigration distribution across Canada. It had been planned as a priority following the 2019 election, but because of the epidemic, it has been postponed. Fraser will also make sure that immigration benefits small and medium-sized communities.

Waiving application fees for Canadian citizenship: This was also a priority for Trudeau following the 2019 election, but it has been delayed by the epidemic.

Establish a Trusted Employer system: Fraser has been urged to collaborate with the employment minister to create a Trusted Employer system for Canadian businesses that hire temporary foreign workers. He's also been tasked with improving the Temporary Global Talent Stream.

Undocumented workers: Build on existing pilot projects to figure out how to get undocumented employees' status in Canada regularized.

Continue to collaborate with Quebec to help immigrants in Quebec improve their French language skills, as well as promote the national Francophone immigration plan.

Resettlement of Afghan refugees: Meet Canada's objective of 40,000 Afghan refugees.

Since 2015, liberals have expanded immigration. In September, Trudeau's Liberal Party was re-elected for a third consecutive term. They have pushed an aggressively greater immigration strategy since taking power in 2015.

This has necessitated an increase in immigration from around 300,000 per year to the present goal of over 400,000 per year.

Trudeau introduced his new cabinet in October after their victory. Fraser is a Nova Scotian lawyer who was first elected to Parliament in 2015. He takes over as Immigration Minister from Marco Mendicino, who is now the Minister of Public Safety.

According to a conference between the CICC and organizations representing Canadian immigration lawyers and consultants in October 2021, the department now has three short-term priorities: attaining its goals.

Graduates of international students

Up to 40,000 recent overseas student graduates will be accepted as permanent residents in Canada. You must have graduated from a post-secondary Designated Learning Institution (DLI) between January 2017 and the time you submit your application to be eligible.

You must also be employed in Canada at the time you submit your application. Work performed as a sole proprietor is ineligible.

You may have obtained your diploma or degree at a DLI in Quebec, but you must be applying to live in another province. Generally speaking, programmes must be at least eight months long.

Each programme of study for a Diploma of Vocational Studies (DVS) or an Attestation of Vocational Specialization (AVS) must be at least 900 hours long, and the combined programme must be at least 900 hours long.

Health Workers

This year, the Immigration and Refugee Council of Canada (CICC) will accept up to 20,000 new permanent residents through a temporary stream of healthcare workers in Canada.

In order to be eligible for several economic-class immigration programmes, you must have competent work experience. This is not the case with this programme; all you need is one year of work experience in a qualified occupation in Canada.

Nurses, physicians, and pharmacists are among the 40 occupations that are eligible for this programme. This category also includes several vocations linked to social work, such as social workers, social and community service workers, and home support workers. This career is not open to veterinarians or veterinarian technicians.

International students with the French language

This new track is for recent international student graduates who are living in Canada and speak French. You must not intend to relocate to Quebec to be eligible for the programme, although you can still apply if you have a Quebec-based education.

You must be working in Canada at the time of your application to be eligible. You must also have completed a post-secondary programme at a Canadian Designated Learning Institution (DLI) after January 2017.

The programme from which you graduated must also meet eligibility requirements. In most cases, they must last longer than eight months. Each programme of study for a Diploma of Vocational Studies (DVS) or an Attestation of Vocational Specialization (AVS) must be at least 900 hours long.

Programs for economic and family immigration

The majority of people who are granted permanent residency in Canada are chosen through Canada's economic immigration programmes:

Express Entry: For most economic immigrants, the initial step is to create an Express Entry profile. The person is given points in the profile depending on their language competence, education, talents, and experience. The candidates with the most points are asked to apply for permanent residency every two weeks.

Provincial Nominee Program: Provinces (excluding Quebec) nominate immigrants based on criteria they set to meet their specific requirements.

Skilled Workers Selected by the Province of Quebec: The Province of Quebec picks its own skilled workers.

Entrepreneurs with company ideas and the assistance of Canadian investors can become permanent residents and begin their businesses through the Start-up Visa Program.
