Only two weeks left to give your input on Canadian immigration

Canadian immigration levels and mix: public consultations

There are only two weeks left to give your opinion on Canadian immigration levels and the mix of the types of immigrants Canada should be focusing on during the online portion of the consultation.

The online consultation is available until September 19th here.

The survey asks questions on Canada’s current mix of immigrants, whether Canadian immigration levels should increase, decrease or stay the same, whether certain categories of immigrants should be held at a higher priority than others, and which categories should increase. In addition, the survey asks which categories should decrease as a result of others increasing.

If you’re an employer who finds it difficult to manoeuvre the paperwork involved in hiring skilled workers, or a recent immigrant who finds the wait for parents and grandparents far too long, now is the chance for you to have your say online.

A full report on the results of the survey should be complete within the next few months, according to Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
