A Critical Examination of 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.

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. Total Foreign Nationals entering Canada through both legal immigration programs and through illegal border crossing into Canada : : over 1.5 million, which includes:
• 340,000 Immigrants in the Economic & Family Class
• 500,000 to 700,000 International Students
• 150,000 to 200,000 Temporary Foreign Workers
• 50,000 to 60,000 Illegal Border Crossers
• 250,000 International Mobility Workers.
All 1.5 million have the potential to apply for legal Permanent Resident (Immigrant) status. The total of 1.5 million is shocking and outrageous !!
Up to now, the total of about 320,000 was already grossly excessive and unnecessary. It was also the highest per capita intake in the world. The new total is virtual insanity.
So far in , the following number of foreign nationals who have settled in Canada is:

3. According to Canada’s Border Police (Canada Border Services Agency or CBSA), about 50,000 Illegals entered Canada in each of the three years starting in 2017. That’s a total of 150,000 illegals, most of whom are now fake “refugee” claimants. Remember that this inflow started after Trudeau foolishly declared in January, 2017 : “To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will welcome you, regardless of your faith.” According to projections, another 50,000 illegals will enter Canada in . So far in , the following number have already entered Canada :

4. According to the Canadian Bureau of International Education (a private advocacy group), there were 494,525 Foreign Students in Canada in 2017. According to Canada’s Immigration Minister, the total in will be over 700,000. So far in , this totals

5. Number of 10-Year Visa Recipients. This immigration category was created by former Conservative Immigration Minister Jason Kenney as a way of appeasing ethnic groups (Sikhs and Chinese especially) who wanted to bring relatives (particularly parents and grandparents) to Canada, supposedly to perform household duties such as babysitting. The 10-Visitor Visa program was invented to prevent parents and grandparents from becoming permanent residents and eventually permanent burdens on Canada. The program allows parents and grandparents of immigrants to stay in Canada temporarily (up to 10 years). According to Vancouver Sun columnist, Douglas Todd, in the first 3 years of this program, more than 3 million 10-Year Visitor Visas were granted. To Canada’s horror, this program appears to be turning into a national scandal. According to recent reports, labour contractors in ethnic groups are using the huge pool of 10-Year Visa Recipients as a pool of cheap labour. Undoubtedly, these Visa Recipients are taking jobs that Canadians should get. Assuming a rate of 25,000 new 10-Year Visitor Visas being issued per year, the total number of 10-Year Visa recipients issued since 2014 is:

6. Number of Temporary Foreign Workers. According to StatsCan, in the years 2013 to 2017, Canada allowed 540,807 Temporary Foreign Workers to come to Canada to work. So far, since 2014, in , this totals:

Furthermore, according to Canada’s Immigration Department, it took 841 pages (!!) to list employers who received approval to import a TFW between 2013 and 2015. It is very probable that many employers were committing fraud. Here is a download link to the list of the employers (39 MB): temporary-foreign-workers.pdf

7. According to the World Bank, Remittances sent ‘back home’ by Temporary Foreign Workers and Immigrants in Canada total $40 Billion a year. That means $40 Billion less circulating in Canada’s economy and not employing Canadian-born. So far, in , the remittance total is:

8. According to Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) statistics, About 142,755 Refugee Claims were referred to the IRB in the years 2015 to 2018. For Immigration and Refugee Board details, see Refugee Protection Claims. So far, the following number have been referred to the IRB:

9. 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.
