It is a known fact that Canada is one of the most sought after destinations when it comes to immigration from developing nations. As one of the developed nations in the world, the country offers loads in the form of high standards of living, employment opportunities and other opportunities for life. This brings about taking important decisions by the Canadian immigration officials on a daily basis.
At the same time, it would not be wrong to say that Canadians are being selected. This is because majority of immigrants availing permanent residency in Canada tend to become Canadian citizens at a later stage. In other words, a nation is being built by design through the process of immigration.
The yearly cut-off is somewhere about 250,000 which is the limit for the migrants to enter legally into Canada. These people apply for visas under various categories which includes the Skilled Migrant program, the family class immigrants and so on.
Of the above, the skilled migrants are those who are assessed for their education, professional work experience, and their skills in English or French. This is because these migrants are selected to find a job for themselves and contribute to the economy of the nation. These set of migrants would definitely aid to the development of the nation.
However, when it comes to migrants coming via other programs as well as the refugees, there is no guarantee that they would equip themselves to be able to cater to the nation. More so, become independent and responsible residents of the nation.
On the other hand, the nation also invests in these immigrants catering to programs which could aid these people in becoming a member and integrating with the local communities. At the same time, the problem of illegal migration also persists with asylum seekers crossing the borders illegally.
Above all, it is agreed that certain part of the immigration population apply for citizenship. However, there are no strict checks when it comes to the others who are residing in Canada yet they might not be contributing effectively to the nation.
