Canada Immigration

Canada’s Immigration matrix of programmes has witnessed substantial changes over the span of the past 5 years.

The former government’s objective was to overhaul the Canadian immigration processing machine that was simply unable to handle the annually increasing number of applications. Ministerial instructions were sanctioned by the regulations, priority occupation lists were devised in collaboration with various provincial labour departments and the suspension of some of the business / Investor programmes.

The objective of the Canadian Immigration and Refugee Protection Act is to attract foreign nationals who can contribute to Canada’s economy, social and cultural weave, reunite families in Canada and finally meet Canada’s obligations towards refugees as declared in the Geneva Convention of 1951 and the protocol of 1967.

Citizenship laws and application criteria was also revised by the department after the passing of the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act (also known as bill C-24), on Friday, June 20, 2014. Legislative changes came into effect in May 2015.

February 25, 2016 a proposition to repeal the June 20, 2014 law was introduced by Justin Trudeau’s new Liberal government.

The complexity, diversity and constant changes to Canada’s Immigration laws require a profound and up-to-date knowledge of Canada’s Immigration and Citizenship array of rules and policies in order for prospective immigrants to plan their immigration endeavor based on reliable and solid advice.
