Provincial Nominee Program To Get Rigid In Ottawa
Economic Upsurge – Jason Kenney, Immigration Minister is contemplating a tighter set of rules for the way provinces select immigrants.
He acclaims his policy to stimulate a successful economic upsurge. The Provincial Nominee Program that lets provinces to pick their individual share of immigrants as per the local economic needs has been accepted for transforming Prairie Provinces into an immigration hub.
The Other Side – On the flipside, the move has raised some eyebrows far east. Embodiments of the program in Nova Scotia, Prince New Brunswick and Edward Island have been plagued by charges of corruption, tampering auditors-general reports and billion-dollar payments paid to migrants citing that they had been baffled by confusing claims. Apprehensions regarding investor streams of the program extended its clutches all the way long to Manitoba. The Auditor-General is personally performing her own assessment pre-emotively in the province.
The Change – As per experts this program is the change. The novel program has grown considerably and is transforming the face of immigration in Canada. It is helping to send novices to areas that desperately require trades people instead of urban centers where at times highly skilled immigrants can’t get a job. An estimate of the nominee program, which is set to be released come Thursday, implies that Ottawa fancies a more direct hand in guaranteeing the program pays-off the way it is intended to.
Evidences – Every province will be required to present evidence supporting that they need the workers they select and they need to more personally supervise visa offices overseas, which shall be inclusive of fraud detection. This is as per the summary presented to The Globe by a government source. The Immigration Minister dropped a hint at the tightening in an interview with The Globe in late 2011.
There are some apprehensions though the program is a success
More From The Summary – The summary further incorporates that nominated immigrants will have to comply with minimum language requirements ahead of immigration. It proposes having a scrutinizing and reporting structure so as to guarantee that provinces comply with the decided performance indicators. The proposal is that failure to compliance would have consequences on those provinces’ programs.
We want to make sure that each province is carrying out their duties with due diligence, Kenney said.
Special Mention – Kenney gave a special mention of concerning immigration consultants in Maritime Provinces’ investor streams.
Those consultants are dealing with people overseas with no intention of settling in Atlantic Canada,” he held. “Things these are the ones to be watchful of. This is one of the many reasons that we will not be able to continue with the rate of growth in the program lately”, declared Canada Immigration Minister, Jason Kenney.
