Canada Immigration – Changes to Parent Visa System
Added: (Fri Jan 11 2019)
Pressbox (Press Release) -
Earlier this year, the government of Canada has announced its intention to replace the current, highly contentious system of lottery-based allotment of parents and grand parents and visa and move towards a quota-based system.
The applications for the new system are expected to open at the end of this month. A social media post period is set to reopen at the end of the month. According to a spokesperson for the IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada), a social media post conveying the same was issued around the end of the previous year.
The minister for Canada immigration, Mr Ahmed Hussen clarified that an overwhelming frustration among both the immigrants and Canadian citizens over the existing systems was the primary reason for switching to the new one. He however assured the applicants that the change would not blindside anyone and adequate warning would be given to all before the applications are reopened
In the previous allotment for the year 2017 which was through a lottery nearly as many as 95,000 applications were made by permanent residents for bringing in their aged relatives to the country through the Canada immigration process out of which only 10,000 applications were accepted which led to fierce competition. Many people complained of the unfair pressure on the applicants
Mr Rahman opined that politicians need to work out the details of the quota system and see how it will affect the families coming to Canada in the future. In the short term, however he suggested that the IRCC admit its lack of enough manpower to process the application in time.
There has been a huge backlog of applications which have swamped the family reunification system for many years, however with these changes the backlog may be reduced considerably.
The positive changes that are being made not just for this visa program, but the Canada immigration system is typical of the current political climate of the country and is a testimonial to the Canadian government’s commitment to immigration
