John McCallum, the immigration minister of Canada has given strong hints new steps will be taken to give a significant boost to immigration and stretch it way beyond its present level. These new measures, according to McCallum, will be directed towards fulfilling the labor needs of Canada.
The immigration minister was there in Manila, Philippines on August 12, when he made the statement. He highlighted the fact that the population of Canada is aging shortages of labor looming large. The Liberal minister was talking in Philippines before the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.
To counter the problem of aging and labor shortages we are thinking of increasing the number of immigrants that are coming to Canada. This is precisely what we are going to do.
At present a large number of applicants applying for Canadian permanent residency are from Philippines, as per the latest data published on May 31 by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
It was also stated by immigration minister that the processing time for granting a visa in Philippines has also reduced to half, to around 12 months. This means that people can reunite with their family much more quickly.
Earlier, McCallum was there in Beijing, China, where he made the announcement that more visa processing offices will be opened up there in China. This has been planned with the objective of attracting highly skilled workforce to Canada.
The Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau and his government has already planned to bring in nearly 300,000 immigrants in 2016. In case this number is achieved, and in all likelihood it will, than it will be the highest number of immigrants that will be called in a year.
The immigration plan for three years that has been chalked about John McCallum is part of the bigger plan of Liberal government to grow the economy and bring in more innovation. This plan will be unveiled by the government in this fall season.
