Canada wants to welcome new immigrants. This situation is the fact that the Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship highlighted during his first major speech since beginning his work in this role. Marco Mendicino was appointed as the Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship in November 2019.
The Reason Why Canada Desires to Encourage Immigration
Mendicino stated that the reason why Canada needs to accept immigrants and to encourage immigration is that the nation has a low birth rate and an aging population. Ipso facto, the government needs to promote migration to maintain its population level and to support its economy. One of the methods used to encourage immigration defines the professions and geographical areas that are experiencing difficulties in recruiting labor and for which access to work for foreigners in Canada is made more flexible.
Thus, Mendicino stated that Canada wants to make it easy for immigrants to find all the useful information they need to come and settle in Canada, to bring their family, and to do seasonal or permanent work, or to study. At the same time, you may wonder: How can the time that is taken by the authorities to process the files be reduced to a minimum, to respect the need for immigration? This fact is one of the goals of the new Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship.
The Problem of How to Encourage Immigrants
However, the issue of how to encourage immigrants to move to Canada has not yet been fully resolved, and the professional integration of foreign immigrants remains a project left open to the new appointment of Marco Mendicino as the new Minister of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship. However, The Municipal Nominee Program (MNP) is a program that the Canadian federal administration will implement to encourage new Canada-wide strategic economic development.
