CIC: Application Process To Be Changed
Avoid Backlog: The CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Canada) has modified its regulations of the intake of immigration applicants. Under the federal business programs, the number of federal skilled workers will be altered to avoid backlog and deal with the wait time on these applications to cater to the demands of the Canadian labor market.
On The Losing Side: Jason Kenney, the Federal Immigration Minster believed Canada is losing out a few of its superlative and most promising immigrants to other nations owing to drawn out processing durations. “Our system is such that we have lost emerging talents to countries like Australia since provide visa rather quickly,” he informed approximately 300 business people on Wednesday in city center Toronto. “People won’t wait for 6-7 years to know their fate.”
Resources: Kenney then addressed the gathering by saying that resources have been accumulated and amends to facilitate hurry up the processing of applications at embassies overseas. Immigrant and expatriate groups, entrepreneurs, overseas workers and students needing visas have been long term critics of the drawn out wait necessary to get visas and added immigration credentials for Canada. These resources are believed to be solutions to this long-term complain.
What Is Actually Wanted - “We wish for a non-lingering and reasonably timed immigration structure in which a submission will be put forward and the whole scrutiny will be done in a year’s time,” said Jason Kenney. “People must be familiar with the fact that when they pay their charge they will be provided the services.” He alleged that there were somewhat 850,000 cases pending in 2006, and approximately 254,000 immigrants are permitted to relocate in Canada every year.
The Rejection Rate: The Federal Immigration was quizzed by a person regarding a soaring rejection rate of aspirants at the Canadian embassy in Chandigarh, India. India and specifically Chandigarh have been a major supply of grievances from the Indian population in Toronto. The minister stated he had paid a visit to the embassy and discussed with the team and the rejection rate is believed to be 50% of the total number of applications filed.
Stakeholders’ View: Kenney was present at a roundtable conference on St. Clair Ave. E. to discuss with stakeholders on immigration levels. Mendel Green, a well-known lawyer of Toronto, has been tetchy for a long time that Canada is missing out on businessmen who can invest substantially in the country but can’t wait long for visas. The department brought forth on Wednesday a new 10-year manifold entry visa that lets visa holders come to Canada on numerous occasions as long as the visa is valid.
