HM Minister of Citizenship and Immigration Jason Kenney, wants to consult Canadians on immigration levels. I think this is a try good idea. I am not anti immigration ( I am an immigrant), but I think we need to be far more careful who we allow into the Great Dominion. We should increase skilled immigrants and entrepreneurs and cut back on family reunification. I also think we have to be far stricter on refugee applicants. We need to do better security checks on potential immigrants. What do you think?
Immigration Levels and Mix: Stakeholder and Public Consultation
About this consultation
This past July, Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney, along with Parliamentary Secretaries Rick Dykstra and Chungsen Leung, launched a series of cross-country consultations on immigration issues.
As part of this process, this online consultation aims to seek your feedback on Canada’s immigration program. We are asking for your input on:
a) the right level of immigration to Canada (how many?), and;
b) the right mix between the three immigrant classes to Canada (economic, family and protected persons).
Should immigration levels be higher? Which of these areas should be a priority? If we raise levels in one of these areas, where should we take less?
A report on the consultations, including a summary of this online consultation questionnaire, will be available on the CIC website in fall 2011 or winter 2012.
Before you begin
The online consultation will take about 20 to 30 minutes to complete. Your participation is voluntary and we appreciate your time and input.
Prior to completing the questionnaire, please read the background document. This serves to give you a sense of some of the challenges and realities we face as we strive to best answer the difficult questions involved in managing Canada’s immigration system.
