Our Government has taken steps to ensure newcomers to Canada have a real and fair chance at success.
As an immigrant myself, I’m pleased to share with you Bill C-6’s passage marks the repeal of the unfair provisions of the Citizenship Act brought in under the previous Conservative government, which treated dual citizens differently than other Canadians. We believe a Canadians is a Canadian is a Canadian.
To protect people from abuse relationships, we’ve eliminated the previous Conservative government’s unfair changes for permanent residents that endangered vulnerable immigrants.
With the Targeted Employment Strategy for Newcomers, we are improving the foreign credential recognition process so newcomers can put their skills to work more quickly, and maximize their contribution to the Canadian economy.
Immigration makes our country stronger. With measures like these, we are attracting the best and brightest from around the world, giving everyone a real and fair chance to succeed while protecting those who are most vulnerable.
