More changes coming to Canada’s immigration landscape | Embassy – Canada’s Foreign Policy Newspaper

Excerpts:

“Ms. Alboim said the changes would make it more difficult for people to qualify for permanent entry, stay in Canada, and become citizens. While there’s a tightening of entry of permanent residents, she said there is a loosening of entry as a temporary foreign worker…

“It increases the precarious status of folks. And we’re moving more towards a short-term, just-in-time human resource policy, rather than a longer-term nation-building policy,” said Ms. Alboim, who is also an adjunct professor with Queen’s University’s School of Policy Studies…

And she said Mr. Kenney’s focus on enforcement, which he says is to ensure the integrity of the immigration system, assumes bad intentions on the part of refugee claimants from so-called safe countries or sponsored spouses, for instance.  ”
