Canada Federal party is influenced by the Trump Immigration plan and if came into power the PPC (People Party Canada) will implement the solid American immigration model. The PPC plans to trim down immigration, combat multiculturalism, emphasize on high-skilled immigrants, and accentuate adaptation.Maxime Bernier, a Member of Parliament from Quebec and PCC's leader, delivered the plan along with ‘Muslim Dissident' and long-time critic of multiculturalism, Salim Mansur. The PCC's extraordinary idea is about "Canada Immigration Policy to economically benefit Canadians and Canada as a whole."
PPC's idea of reducing immigration has sidelined them from most of the Canadians. Nearly 50 percent of Canadians are in favour of a reduction in immigration, while only 6 percent want it increased.
Bernier says that "mass immigration, open borders, unvetted immigration, (and) extreme multiculturalism" fails to meet this obligation. "On the contrary, it's a very dangerous type of social engineering. It amounts to large-scale government intervention in society and culture," talking about Canada's current policies. "It will bring increasing cultural balkanisation, distrust, social conflict, and potentially violence, as we are seeing in other countries where division has reached a critical level."
The Quebec minister also argued about the immigrants claiming 74 percent of subsidies given by the government which accounted for Canadian taxpayers between $16 billion and $24 billion every year. He also says that an increase in several migrant results in congestion of major Canada's urban areas, cause housing prices and rents to increase in popular cities like Vancouver and Toronto.
Keeping these facts, Bernier argues Canada should "stop being politically correct. We must recognize that not all values, not all social customs, not all cultures are equally valuable. Our distinct values are those of contemporary Western civilization."
He blames Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of being the "biggest peddler" of the "that all cultures are equal." Mr. Trudeau isn't concerned about Canada's customs and distinctiveness, heritage and traditions. He is just seeing himself as a citizen of the world.
The PPC plan is aimed to address five key issues: Firstly, "A People's Party government will substantially lower the total number of immigrants and refugees we accept every year, from 350,000 to between 100,000 and 150,000, depending on economic and other circumstances."
The second focus is on Multiculturalism: "A People's Party government will repeal the Multiculturalism Act and eliminate all funding to promote multiculturalism. We will instead emphasize the integration of immigrants into Canadian society."
The third focus is economic immigration where The PPC wants to restructure the country's point system to favour skilled immigrants, limit the number of migrants accepted under family reunification and discard birth tourism.
The fourth focus is Assimilation where the PPC party will introduce tougher screening process to ensure migrants "share mainstream Canadian values." People with no western values will be rejected.
The fifth focus is refugees. The Party will incorporate more barriers on the border, accepting less number of refugees from the United States and abroad, diminish the government subsidization, and Canada's dependence on the United Nations for refugee selection.
The only emphasis was on "Uniting Canadian with an immigration policy designed to benefit all of us."
The PPC plan is influenced by USA President Donald Trump proposals. Mr. President said that he will make America's immigration system more merit-based and cut down chain migration. He favours English speaking migrants who can easily integrate and contribute towards their economy.
However, if PPC comes into power, they will call for a reduction in immigration from close to 400,000 currently to between 100,000 and 150,000, depending upon the economy.
So, with unpredictability in the Canadian Immigration sector and the country's political scenario, it is practically impossible to predict the future of Canadian Immigration.
