A Serious Look at Canada's Immigration Policies

Immigration Watch Canada is an organization of Canadians who believe that immigration has to serve the needs and interests of Canada’s own citizens. It cannot be turned into a social assistance / job-finding program for people from  other countries. It should not be a method to suppress wages and provide employers with an unending supply of low-wage labour. It should never be a social engineering experiment that is conducted on Canada’s mainstream population in order to make it a minority. **

But immigration has become those three things.

Un regard sérieux aux politiques immigration de Canada


Immigration Watch Canada est une organisation de Canadiens qui croient que l’immigration doit servir les intérêts de ses propres citoyens et ne doit pas être transformé en un programme d’aide sociale / de recherche d’emploi pour les personnes d’autres pays. Elle ne doit pas non plus etre une méthode pour diminuer les salaires et fournir aux employeurs un approvisionnement sans fin de main-d’œuvre à faible cout. Finalement, les pratiques d’immigration ne devraient jamais être une expérience d’ingénierie sociale qui est menée sur la population du Canada afin d’en faire une minorité. **

Mais l’immigration est devenue ces trois choses.

QUICK IMMIGRATION FACTS
THE FOLLOWING “CLOCKS” BEGAN ON JANUARY 1, :

1. Net Cost of Immigration to Canada: Up to $35 Billion per year about 10 years ago.  The amount is now probably at least $40 Billion per year. How many homeless could Canada take off our streets with  that $40 Billion? The lower figure ($35 Billion)  amounts to $95,890,000 per day, and so far in ,

2. Number of immigrants coming to Canada : an average of close to 250,000 per year since 1991 (Note: in each of the years 2016 and 2017, Canada took in about 300,000). That’s 822 per day, 34 per hour. This unnecessary and relentless intake is an abnormality in our immigration history, and has made many Canadians feel like strangers in their own country. And Trudeau and his Somali Immigration Minister are plotting to take even more.  They contemptuously  tell us that this is “THE NEW NORMAL” for Canada. This intake is outrageous, yet our cowardly politicians refuse to debate the intake. Our national Parliament has been transformed into a House Of Sodomy where MP’s appease immigrant groups in order to get their votes. If Canadians  think this is an exaggeration, take note that Parliament recently declared the month of April as “SIKH HERITAGE MONTH”.  Not a single MP abstained or voted against this law. The chief “heritage” event that Canadians will forever remember Sikhs for is the bombing of an Air India plane.  329 Canadians were killed. To this day, the main Sikh conspirators  remain unpunished largely because of Sikh intimidation of other Sikhs. See Why Parliament should repeal Sikh Heritage month

3. According to the Canadian Bureau of International Education (a private advocacy group), there were   494,525 foreign students in Canada in 2017. The CBIE and many public agencies claim that International Students are a net  economic contributor to Canada. However, NO Canadian study has ever been done to prove that claim. Even more outrageous,  most Top administrators at Canadian universities boast that International students create “Diversity”.  As Canada’s top immigration critic (Martin Collacott) has said, “universities such as UBC have Diversity coming out of their ears”.   Ethnic Chinese students comprise over  50% of UBC’s student population.  Those Chinese contemptuously refer to UBC as the “University of a Billion Chinese”. The pursuit of do-called Diversity has been harmful to Canadian-born and has probably displaced tens of thousands of Canadian-born. As for the U.S., the truth is that a study done by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and other agencies showed that in spite of the high fees paid by International Students, U.S. sources were actually subsidizing  International Students. In the case of Graduate International Students, the average subsidy was about $12,000 + per year.  Yet, without proof of any economic benefit to Canada,  Canada continues to accept large numbers of NEW international students every year.

4. Number of Temporary Foreign Workers allowed to work in Canada has grown as high as 500,000 in some years, representing new arrivals and those already here. Immigration Canada has stated that Canada took a huge number of TFW’s in the years 2013 to 2015. According to Ottawa, the names of employers who imported TFW’s comprised over 814 pages !  It is probable that the TFW program has been thoroughly abused by employers to illegally import TFW’s who are probably displacing at least tens of thousands of Canadian workers. For the list, see Temporary Foreign Workers

5. Remittances sent overseas total $24 Billion a year. Remittances represent the amount of money sent ‘back home’ by foreign-born workers in Canada. That means $24 Billion less circulating in Canada’s economy and not employing Canadian-born.

6. According to Immigration and Refugee Board statistics, about 142,755 refugee claims were referred to the IRB in the years 2015 to 2018.  For details, see https://irb-cisr.gc.ca/en/statistics/protection/Pages/RPDStat2019.aspx

6. The International Mobility Program admitted  about 70,000 guest workers  to Canada in 2005. But by 2018, Canada was accepting more than 250,000 in this category, which is typically made up of younger foreigners  on two-year visas. Many find jobs in the service sector. The International Mobility Program is a second Temporary Foreign Worker Program, and according to two Canadian economists, most Canadians are unaware of this program and employers are widely abusing it. These workers are suppressing wage increases and displacing Canadians. They are also adding significant pressure to Canada’s already extremely distressed housing situation. Worse still, an increasing number want to remain in Canada. The largest group came are from India, followed by those from the U.S., China, France and South Korea. Toronto took in about 70,000 international mobility workers in 2018, while Vancouver took 30,000.
