Canada-Plan-to-Invest-in-New-Immigrants

The government in Canada, headed by PM Justin Trudeau, in its federal budget for 2018 has committed massive funding for new immigrants.

This budget analyses the spending pattern of money over the next year by the government. After thoroughly examining the budget, we see that the Canadian government has a plan to Invest in new immigrants.

The immigrants have always played a crucial role to improve the economy and the allocation of funds highlights this central role. The budget allots funds using various channels to support the equality and growth of the immigrants.  

$440 MILLION FOR INCREASING IMMIGRATION QUOTA

In November 2017, the Government had made an announcement regarding having a Three-Year Canadian Immigration Plan. It aims to welcome around one million immigrants to the country in the next three years. The Federal Budget demonstrates the methods to manage the enlarged quotas.

The government has committed $440 million for supporting the enlarged immigration levels in the next three years. There is an allocation for many government agencies for supporting a broad range of services/programs. There is a stress on providing better quality services in the intake as well as processing of immigration applications so that the new immigrants get access to settlement services which help them to adapt to Canadian life. It reflects the commitment to processing immigrant applications efficiently and support the integration of newcomers.  

$32 MILLION ALLOTTED FOR IMMIGRANT WOMEN

Commitment towards women is a major component of the federal budget. The budget facilitates funding to many programs for women and stresses on gender equality.

Immigrant women are a visible minority and finding jobs can be challenging for them because they need to verify educational credentials and improve their language skills before working. There is a commitment of $31.8 million for the next three years in this section.

$400 MILLION TO STRENGTHEN LANGUAGES

English and French are the two official languages of Canada. Knowing and interacting in these official languages helps in finding a job in canada. There is a commitment of $400 million for the next three years in this section for supporting an Action Plan for Official Languages. The government will opt for funding to help the immigrants to improve the skills in English and French. This will improve the integration and settlement process of immigrants. There will be language training, development of an interactive application and increased recruitment of teachers.

 $4.6 MILLION FOR START-UP VISA PROGRAM

The Start-up Visa Program permits global Entrepreneurs to immigrate to Canada and start new businesses having a spirit of innovation and creativity required to succeed at the global level. The program began as a pilot and has met with the success which has prompted the authorities to make this program a permanent pathway to seek PR. Such entrepreneurs can use their experience to become Prs.

There is a commitment of $4.6 million for supporting the growth of the Start-up Visa Program. The funds would be used to improve client-service experience and ensure all applicants, partners of the private sector and officials to process application electronically in an efficient manner.

 $173 MILLION FOR ASYLUM SEEKERS

2017 saw an increase in the number of people arriving in Canada as asylum seekers. They were fleeing poor conditions in their countries of residence. The government committed $173 million to help to process claims of asylum seekers in the next two years. Canada has made a commitment in a comprehensive manner to have great economic growth and has supported all types of equality. The new immigrants will play a vital role in shaping Canada. With the allocation of funds for many programs and services meant for new immigrants, the present year will be very historic for immigration.
