I agree with all of what you say except it being Harpers fault.

I think it was the Liberals with Trudeau that opened the gates . ( I could be wrong on that.)

Regardless of that however, we Canadians are responsible for us needing all these immigrants now.

How  ?  SEX !! Or lack of it. Or lack of having enough children to fulfil our need.

New Brunswick languages commissioner wants more French-speaking immigrants

Katherine d'Entremont says 33% of immigrants to New Brunswick should choose to live as francophone

CBC News , Apr 04, 2014

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/new-brunswick/languages-commissioner-wants-more-french-speaking-immigrants-1.2598280

New Brunswick's commissioner of official languages says more must be done to ensure that one-third of all immigrants to the province are francophones.

Katherine d'Entremont says only 12 per cent of immigrants to the province have registered as francophones in recent years. She says that is too far out of step with the historical reality of francophones making up 33 per cent of the province's population.

"The demographic weight of the community is lessening," said d'Entremont.

"If the francophone community sits at 33 per cent of the overall population and year over year over year, immigration rates are attracting only 12 per cent francophones, then the 33 per cent is going to decline gradually over time," she said.

"We want to maintain the historical linguistic division."

The equality of New Brunswick's two linguistics communities is enshrined in the Constitution, making it the country's only officially bilingual province.

d'Entremont is calling on the provincial government to do more to target countries with francophone populations in efforts to attract immigrants.

"The provincial government can actually, through their programs and policies, control things so that the equality is restored," she said. "They can target more aggressively countries where francophone populations are in a majority.

Canadian Immigration ~ Indo-Canadian immigration continues to grow

Indo-Canadian immigration continues to grow

April 14, 2014 — Brampton, ON — Today Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander, along with Member of Parliament for Brampton–Springdale, Parm Gill, affirmed that Canada remains a destination of choice for visitors, students and business travellers from India.

In 2013, Canada issued more than 130,000 visas to people coming to visit family, friends or as tourists. We also welcomed almost 14,000 students and admitted more than 33,000 Indian citizens as permanent residents of Canada.

For over a century, Canada has benefited from the talent and hard work of newcomers from India. Tens of thousands of Indians continue to make the journey to Canada every year to help us build our country, our economy and, in many cases, to settle permanently and become Canadians.

The government has been making changes to facilitate legitimate travel, welcoming more visitors, businesspeople and students to Canada than ever before. The Business Express Program (BEP), introduced in 2008, was created to ensure faster processing of visa applications for businesspeople. In addition, the Worker Express Program, which provides expedited service to applicants sent to Canada by companies under the BEP, was introduced in India in June 2009 and has since benefited more than 7,200 Indian citizens.

In addition to the BEP, in July 2011, the government extended the duration of multiple-entry visas from five to 10 years allowing visitors to enter and exit Canada for up to six months at a time over a 10-year period. The Parent and Grandparent Super Visa remains a fast and convenient option for parents and grandparents who want to spend longer periods of time with their families in Canada. By the end of February 2014, more than 31,000 Super Visas had been issued, and almost 97 percent of qualified Super Visa applicants were approved.

Quick facts

More than 33,000 Indians became permanent residents in 2013, a 17 percent increase since 2008.
The number of visitor visas issued in 2013 to Indian citizens represents an increase of 14 percent since 2008.
Nearly four times more Indian students entered Canada in 2013 than in 2008 when 3,566 Indian citizens entered Canada as students.
Canada welcomed more than 50,000 parents and grandparents to Canada during 2012 and 2013. Canada plans to welcome 20,000 more over the coming year.
Quote

“Our government is proud to announce that Canada continues to attract visitors, students and business travellers from India. The impressive scale of visitor visas and study permits granted to travellers from India is an indication of the strong ties that exist between our two great nations.”

Chris Alexander, Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister

“I am honoured to be part of a government that continues to welcome record numbers of immigrants to Canada, including India, which was a top source country in 2013. Canada offers tremendous opportunities for many who want to immigrate here and start a new life.”

Parm Gill, Member of Parliament for Brampton—Springdale

Canadian Immigration : launch of "Express Entry" immigration program
« Reply #6 on: April 24, 2014, 08:10:35 PM »
Canada Preparing for the launch of "Express Entry" immigration program

New caps for Federal Skilled Worker and Federal Skilled Trades Programs, and Canadian Experience Class

April 23, 2014 — Ottawa — Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander today announced new measures in key economic immigration programs to prepare for next year’s launch of Express Entry, Canada’s new active recruitment model. Express Entry will lead to a faster and more flexible economic immigration system that will address Canada’s economic and labour market needs.

To prepare for the launch of Express Entry in 2015, Citizenship and Immigration Canada will begin accepting applications under new caps for the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP), Federal Skilled Trades Program (FSTP) and Canadian Experience Class (CEC), starting May 1, 2014. These measures will ensure a steady supply of skilled workers who are settling in Canada permanently and helping to supplement the Canadian workforce in areas where there are skills shortages.

With the FSWP backlog on track for elimination this year, a new cap of 25,000 applications will provide the appropriate number of applications to support expected admissions in 2015. The list of eligible occupations – reflecting the latest labour market needs – will be more than doubled, from 24 to 50 occupations.

To support Canada’s need for skilled trades people, the FSTP cap will be increased to 5,000 applications. All 90 skilled trades designated under the program regulations will now be eligible for consideration, although sub-caps remain in order to ensure appropriate representation of occupations.

The CEC cap will be re-set at 8,000 applications, as of May 1, 2014, to cover the transition period leading up to Express Entry.

The full set of Ministerial Instructions will be available in the Canada Gazette on April 26, 2014.

Quick facts

These are the last FSWP, FSTP and CEC applications that will be accepted under the current system before Express Entry launches in January 2015.
Application caps ensure that the immigration programs continue to address labour market needs and that backlogs are not created.
The latest FSWP occupation list was developed based on recent labour market data from Employment and Social Development Canada and input from the provinces and territories on regional labour market needs.
Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2014 will invest $14 million over two years and $4.7 million per year ongoing to ensure the successful implementation of Express Entry.

Canadian Immigration ~ reforms to the Citizenship Act
« Reply #7 on: June 20, 2014, 09:49:20 AM »
Government welcomes Royal Assent of Bill C-24

The government celebrates the passage of reforms to the Citizenship Act

June 19, 2014 — Ottawa, ON — Canada’s Citizenship and Immigration Minister Chris Alexander announced today that reforms to the Citizenship Act received final passage and Royal Assent. The reforms will strengthen the rules around access to citizenship to ensure that new citizens are better prepared for full participation and integration into Canadian society, with the goal of fostering in new Canadians a stronger attachment to Canadian values and traditions.

Key reforms include:

Improving efficiency

Canada’s citizenship program is being improved by reducing the decision-making process from three steps to one. It is expected that, by 2015–2016, this change will bring the average processing time for citizenship applications down to under a year. It is also projected that by 2015-2016, the current backlog will be reduced by more than 80 percent.

Reinforcing the value of Canadian citizenship

The government is ensuring citizenship applicants maintain strong ties to Canada. These amendments to the Citizenship Act provide a clearer indication that the “residence” period to qualify for citizenship in fact requires physical presence in Canada.

More applicants will now be required to meet language requirements and pass a knowledge test to ensure that new citizens are better prepared to fully participate in Canadian society. New provisions will also help individuals with strong ties to Canada, such as by automatically extending citizenship to additional “Lost Canadians” who were born before 1947 as well as to their children born in the first generation outside Canada.

Cracking down on citizenship fraud

The updated Citizenship Act includes stronger penalties for fraud and misrepresentation (a maximum fine of $100,000 and/or five years in prison) and expands the grounds to bar an application for citizenship to include foreign criminality, which will help improve program integrity.

Protecting and promoting Canada’s interests and values

Finally, the amendments bring Canada in line with most of our peer countries, by providing that citizenship can be revoked from dual nationals who are convicted of serious crimes such as terrorism, high treason and spying offences (depending on the sentence received) or who take up arms against Canada. Permanent residents who commit these acts will be barred from citizenship.

As a way of recognizing the important contributions of those who serve Canada in uniform, permanent residents who are members of the Canadian Armed Forces will have quicker access to Canadian citizenship. The Act also stipulates that children born to Canadian parents serving abroad as servants of the Crown are able to pass on Canadian citizenship to children they have or adopt outside Canada.

Quick facts

Requiring 14-64 year-olds to meet knowledge and language requirements provides an incentive for more individuals to acquire official language proficiency and civics knowledge, which helps them successfully integrate into Canadian society.

Citizenship applicants will need to be physically present in Canada for a total of four out of their last six years. In addition, they will need to be physically present in Canada for 183 days per year for at least four of those six years. These provisions will come into force in approximately a year.

Under the new streamlined decision-making model, citizenship officers will decide all aspects of a citizenship application. Under the old model, obtaining citizenship was a three-step process that involved duplication of work.

Since 2006, Canada has welcomed over 1,300,000 proud new Canadians. Citizenship and Immigration Canada received 333,860 citizenship applications in 2013, the highest volume ever.

This is a bit silly. I don't mean it shouldn't apply just that to a large extent it applies at the Permanent Residency stage already.

Citizenship may be applied for after a period of residency. During which integration has taken place. I mean, look at me. Lived here since 2004. The new rule means if I applied for citizenship I'd have to 'prove' I can speak English and that I can integrate.

There are obviously exceptions. So focus on them.
