Canada Immigration Minister Advocates for Spreading the Positive Impacts of Immigration to Counteract Fear

Ahmed Hussen, the Canadian Immigration Minister, stressed the positive aspects and effects of immigration on the country and the economy while addressing international immigration experts at the annual International Metropolis Conference.

This year’s theme for the conference, which was “The Promise of Migration” is what Hussen calls “the kind of conversation we should be having”. 

Over 1000 immigration officials and experts based internationally were in attendance. 

Hussen spoke of his experience serving as Canada’s Immigration Minister, and how it has opened his eyes to the value of welcoming new citizens to the country, as well as Canada’s attitude towards immigrants. The country is generally known to be quite receptive and accommodating to immigrants, which Hussen believes has only served it well in terms of social and economic growth. 

“In Canada, I always knew intellectually and from reading reports just how crucial the injection of new immigrants and workers is to our economy. But it wasn’t until I became a minister and I travelled from coast to coast in Canada that I realized just how severe those shortages were and how small and medium and large businesses relied on workers to grow their businesses and contribute to the local economy. They’re one of the biggest champions of increasing immigration numbers into Canada.” Hussen said to the audience. 

He went on to say that putting emphasis on the good outcomes of immigration due to a recent growth in fear and anti-immigrant sentiments. Since the inauguration of current U.S. president Donald Trump, anti-immigrant and racially profiling propaganda has been on the rise.

Hussen says that promoting the positive impacts that immigrants have in the community and the nation is the best weapon to combat these fears.

 “The best weapon against fear is facts; facts don’t lie and the numerous studies continue to show that migrants make an enormous contribution to our economies and our societies,” Hussen explained.

“Our job as stakeholders as government as all of you working in [the immigration] space, is to fight fear with facts, to push the reality, the positive impact of immigration on the local economy, the positive role that immigration can and does play in meeting demographic challenges, in filling unfilled jobs, in bringing much-needed skills to countries like Canada. We need to highlight that, we cannot take those facts for granted, that everybody understands them or is aware of them.”

Hussen himself originally came to Canada as a refugee from Somalia, and cited a recent study conducted by the United Nations which revealed that Canada had welcomed the most refugees in 2018 when asked what he is most proud of. 

He felt that this shows that Canada is being recognized for its compassion towards fellow humans, and is seen as a place of hope and opportunity for those who are lost or without a place to call home. 

“I’m proud that we have demonstrated to many other countries and politicians who have tried to use immigration as a tool to divide people, we have demonstrated through our government’s actions and through the leadership of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government that you can be both strong and effective in protecting your country and the health and safety of your citizens while being compassionate and open to refugees. You don’t have to pick one or the other. You can do both, and we have demonstrated that.”

Ontario French-speanking stream

Ontario invited 360 French-Speaking candidates through Skilled Worker Stream

Ontario issued new invitations to immigration candidates with eligible French-speaking abilities to apply for an Ontario provincial nomination through the Skilled Worker Stream. A total of 360 invitations were issued in the May 22 draw.

The French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream is aligned with Federal Express Entry (EE) system. To qualify for the French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream, candidates must meet the requirements of both the French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream and one of the two federal immigration programs: Federal Skilled Worker (FSW) or Canadian Experience Class (CEC).

EE candidates with a provincial nomination receive an additional 600 points toward their Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score, which effectively guarantees an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence from the Government of Canada. 

The French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream does not require a job offer in Ontario, nor does it require a minimum CRS score to be eligible. However, a minimum language level at CLB 7 in French and CLB 6 in English are required. Also, candidates must have been obtained at least one-year work experience in NOC Skill level 0, A or B. If you choose to be assessed against the FSW, you must score at least 67 points on the six selection factors, which include education, language skills, work experience, age, arranged employment in Canada and adaptability.

So far in 2019, a total of 549 invitations have been issued through the French-Speaking Skilled Worker Stream. 

If you speak both French and English and interested in immigrating to Ontario, you are welcome to contact our Professional Canada Immigration Consultants for more information.

entrepreneur

Ontario to come up with new changes for Entrepreneur Immigration

Ontario released new details of proposed changes to Entrepreneur Stream on April 19, 2019. In its budget, the minimum threshold for the OINP’s Entrepreneur Stream will be reduced by half or even more than half of the current requirements. The Ontario government says doing so will “make Ontario more competitive with other provinces” and expand the province’s pool of entrepreneurial candidates.

There are three main changes including the requirements of minimum net worth, the minimum investment, and the minimum number of employees.

If the business is established within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), the minimum net worth will be reduced from 1,500,000 to 800,000; the minimum investment will be reduced from 1,000,000 to 600,000; and a minimum of two permanent, full-time jobs for Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada must be created. 

If the business is established outside the GTA or in the Information and Communications Technology / Digital Communications sector regardless of location, the minimum net worth will be reduced from 800,000 to 400,000; the minimum investment thresholds will be reduced from 500,000 to 200,000; and only one permanent, full-time jobs for Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada must be created. 

Immigration pilot for smaller communities

The budget also says the government would launch an immigration pilot program in smaller communities in the northern and rural area to bring highly skilled immigrants to these communities. It is like the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIPP), which allowed the four Atlantic provinces to nominate up 2,500 foreign workers and international students for permanent residence in 2018. The government says the pilot programme was aimed at “spread the benefits of immigration to smaller communities.” The smaller communities are those either a city with a population of 50,000 or less, located at least 75 kilometres away from the core of a metropolitan area of 100,000 or more or a city of up to 200,000 people that qualify as remote.

As one of the most popular provinces for immigrants, these big reforms will surely attract more entrepreneurs to Ontario. If you are interested in this program, you are welcome to contact our professional Canada Immigration Consultants for more information.

Agri-Food industry immigration pilot

Canada to launch the Agri-Food industry immigration pilot

The Canadian government will launch the Agri-Food industry immigration pilot in the second half of 2019. The pilot will run for three years and has 2,750 allocations each year. It is designed to support the growth of Canada’s agri-food sector. 

In its Budget 2019, the Government of Canada stated: “To help the agri-food sector meet Canada’s ambitious export targets and attract and retain needed labour, the federal government will launch a three-year immigration pilot to bring in full time, non-seasonal agricultural workers that will include a pathway to permanent residency.”

The Agri-Food industry immigration pilot is an upgraded version of the temporary foreign agricultural worker visa, which allows temporary agricultural workers to work in Canada for a short period. However, it requires them to return to their original place of residence to renew their visas every year. Therefore, becoming a permanent resident is almost impossible. 

The new program: Agri-Food industry immigration pilot will issue Canadian agricultural workers a three-year visa, which will give the foreign agricultural workers enough time to get their permanent resident status in Canada. 

The Canadian government has not announced the specific launch time. At present, it is known that the pilot does not require English scores and funds. As long as you can prove that you are qualified for the agricultural jobs in Canada, you can apply for it.

Masters Graduate Stream

Ontario reopened and paused Masters Graduate Stream on the same day

Ontario reopened its Masters Graduate Stream (MGS) to 667 new registrations on Tuesday, April 30 and quickly reached its allocation in just a few hours.

The total intake limit of the MGS is 1000 in 2019. It was last opened on Tuesday, March 5th at 10:00 a.m. with an intake limit of 1,000 registrations. Due to technical issues, the stream was closed at 11:42 a.m. Only a total of 333 candidates successfully submitted their applications within1 hour and 42 minutes.

The MGS is designed for international students with an eligible Ontario master’s degree to apply for a provincial nomination for Canadian permanent residence. It is one of the most popular immigration streams in Ontario because it does not require a job offer from an Ontario employer. Due to limited immigration allocation and a competitive employment environment, many graduates have to leave Ontario to seek immigration opportunities in other provinces.

H-1B problems draw more foreign workers to Canada

In light of the recent difficulties of obtaining H-1B immigration visas in the United States, more skilled foreign workers are looking to Canada.

The U.S. has an ever-increasing rejection rate for visa applications, whereas Canada’s immigration system is much more efficient and has higher approval rates. Many workers who had tried to get an H-1B visa in the United States have instead successfully moved to Canada, where they have found more opportunities awaiting them.

The H-1B program in the United States has been on the decline since Donald Trump took over from former president Barack Obama. The policies have becomes stricter, and many have lost faith in the system’s design and fairness.

While highly skilled foreign workers are being rejected in the U.S., they are greatly valued by Canadian governments. Because of this, the immigration process for moving to Canada has been made easier in recent years.

Canada Express Entry system

In 2015, Canada created the Express Entry system, which evaluates candidates based on age, skill level, language proficiency, and education, and does not require the applicant to secure a job offer before obtaining a visa.

In addition, the Provincial Nominee Programs are designed to fit the local needs of each province, making it easy for residency applicants to see where they will find the most opportunities.

There are temporary work permits available for skilled foreign workers, which can take only 10 days to obtain.

With Canada’s better immigration system, it is easy to see why so many workers are making the move to the Great North.

Immigration Advantage To Canada

Canada’s immigration Policies have a competitive advantage and attract business. November 8, 2018 By CIC News

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada’s immigration policies have an edge over U.S., when it comes to attracting manpower & business.

 

Canada has been able to attract the top talent through draw on pools of highly educated, futuristic, growth oriented diverse people from all corners of the world.

 

Trudeau gave the statement at the Fortune Most Powerful Women International Summit in Montreal, which was attended by women CEOs, thought leaders, entrepreneurs and Canadian government representatives.

 

Last week, the Liberal government also launched new immigration levels plan, which shall encourage new permanent residents through Canada’s economic, family and refugee / humanitarian programs. This numbers will be almost one per cent of Canada’s population in 2021.

 

60% of the 350,000 immigrants that Canada is planning to welcome this year, will be through Canada’s economic immigration programs. A majority of economic immigrants will be using the Canada’s Federal High Skilled immigration programs and its Provincial Nominee Program.

 

David Bier, an immigration policy analyst with the Cato Institute’s Centre for Global Liberty and Prosperity in Washington supported Trudeau’s remark.

 

Bier said Canada’s new immigration levels plan were competitive with U.S. if immigration rates remain as they are or are even reduced further.

 

In 2017, the Canadian immigration rate was 0.8 per cent.

 

In terms of economic immigration, Canada’s rate was higher than U.S, and would widen the gap further.

 

Republican proposals to reduce legal immigration would not be favourable for the economic growth of America.
