Enhancing the Language Verification Procedure
According to the IRCC, the range of proof of Language authentication process accepted is too broad and not a true reflection of the candidate’s language aptitude. As such, it almost impossible for the immigration officers to assess the candidates’ language capacity due to the subjective evaluation tools set in place. Besides, the officers are also not formal evaluators. Based on their findings, the IRCC recommended a strategy that would equip the officers to assess and validate candidates’ language capacity when needed.
Setting up a New Language Requirement Approach
The knowledge test and study has more requirement for language proficiency that the actual language test. With that, the IRRC saw a great need for more tools and backing for the candidates. As such, the immigration department is relentless in devising a new language requirement approach. This calls for a revised study guide and other necessary tools to enhance the accessibility of the needed information.
Enhancing Active Interaction and Engagement in Canadian Communities
Immigrants who have acquired Canadian citizenship are set to enjoy more positive interaction paybacks. The majority of them feel at home in Canada and their communities. Besides, they express great confidence, satisfaction, and form social connections in Canadian institutions. They are also economically accomplished and are part of volunteer organizations. According to these results, permanent residence comes with a stronger desire to acquire full citizenship and become a Canadian.
The IRCC also noted a difference in employment earnings between citizens and permanent residents. All the same, this was attributed to an individual’s socio-economic characteristics and not residency status. Although volunteering and group membership was also dependent on the socio-economic status, citizens were more likely to participate than permanent residents. Permanent residents who had no intentions of applying for citizenship were least likely to enroll in such activities. While such community activities are central to citizenship objectives and goals, IRCC has minimal approaches to impact these results. Most of the current promotion happenings are focused on the new arrivals.
