In the early 1970’s, my parents entered Canada as Economic Immigrants, sponsored by my uncle (my father’s brother).

For a period of time, under Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau (b. 1919 – d. 2000), a sibling could sponsor another sibling!  This was a very effective immigration policy because it not only reunited families, it brought immigrants to Canada under circumstances where the newly arrived party had access to family support, and the entire family benefitted.

Trudea father and son

As Canada looks to increase the number of immigrants that it receives, the current Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, would be wise to revisit the policy of his father and expand the Sponsorship Class.  Frankly, the young Mr. Trudeau likely received some ‘legacy votes’ from some of those immigrants who were so grateful for his father’s liberal immigration policies. 

Sincerely, 

Antonio Simoes

 

international students in lab

 As of February 10, 2017, full-time post-secondary international students may work on the campus of the university or college at which they are a full-time student without a work permit, and students can apply for a Social Insurance Number (SIN) without an employment contract. 

All individuals who are eligible to work in Canada, whether working on or off campus, are required to have a SIN. Students can apply for a SIN before or within the first three days of receiving an employment position.
 
Permission to work on campus is valid for the period for which students hold a study permit at the institution where they are enrolled in full-time studies.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) defines on-campus work as "employment facilities within the boundaries of the campus", such as at a library, cafeteria, store, hospital, or research facility on the institution's campus. This also includes teaching and research assistant positions. 

 
 
Spousal Sponsorship canada
 
On December 7, 2016, John McCallum, Canada’s Immigration Minister, announced that changes have been made to speed up the processing of Family Class immigration applications. The average processing times are to be reduced from 24 months to 12 months, and gradually, to as fast as six months. 
The new system is operational
as of December 15, 2016.
 
The new 12-month target applies to applicants inside and outside Canada.
 
“Bringing families together makes for a stronger Canada. Canadians who marry someone from abroad shouldn’t have to wait for years to have them immigrate or be left with uncertainty in terms of their ability to stay. What we’re announcing today is a more efficient, more considerate process to reunite families”, said McCallum.
 
In 2017, it is anticipated that Canada will welcome 64,000 new permanent residents as the spouses, common-law partners, or dependent children of Canadian citizens or permanent residents in 2017.
 
“This will be of benefit to the 64,000 spouses we plan to admit to Canada in the coming year, but it will be of benefit to all Canadians because I think that people are more productive citizens, they do better overall when they are with their families than when they are isolated from their families,” said McCallum.
 
Here’s what to expect under the new system:
 
One application kit for all applicants
One checklist 
75 pages of guide material in simplified language
Medical and police certificates required later in the process
