Canadian government seeks feedback on current immigration policy

HIGHLIGHTS

Want to voice your opinion on the state of Canada’s immigration policy? Now might be your chance. The country’s recently elected Liberal government issued an open call to Canadian citizens for feedback on the present state and the possible future direction of its immigration programs.

“Canada’s strength lies in its diversity. Our diversity is closely tied to immigration and is a valued part of Canada’s story — we are asking Canadians to help us write the next chapter,” said Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRSSC) Offices in a statement. “The feedback gathered from Canadians will be used to help guide decisions on how many people we will welcome in the coming years and the future of immigration in Canada.”

Those interested in providing feedback have until Aug. 5 to complete the questionnaire, which covers various topics such as modernizing the immigration system and global migration leadership.
