Latest available information made available by the Immigration Canada suggests that the nation continued to roll-out red carpet welcome to a large number of fresh migrants onto the soils of the nation during 2011.
There were as many as 248,660 fresh permanent residents during the year in question even as this comprised of 156,077 fresh economic migrants. This covered those migrating via the Skilled Worker Visa, 56,419 fresh family class migrants, besides others.
At the present, the Skilled Worker Visa of the nation has a yearly cap of 10,000 new applications, with a cap of 500 applications being put for each of the 29 vocations. Those having an offer of job in a vocation --wherein there could be a scarcity of skilled workers -- are not impacted by this cap.
People who do not possess such an offer of job should understand that just a handful of the visas are available for grabs even while the visa cap of 500, per profession, may be reached sooner than later.
Meanwhile, the Citizenship & Immigration Minister was quoted as saying that the rate of migration (per-capita) of the nation is still very high across the world. He added that since too long immigration has been a supporting characteristic of the history of the nation even as it still plays a decisive role in developing the country.
Jason Kenney, the minister, continued that the new Parent and Grandparent Super Visa has turned out to be a famous option for the new migrants, with the applications of over 1000 candidates being given green signal since December 2011 - when the programme in question became operational.
He further said that he was more than happy that the visa mentioned just a short while ago was working nicely, and giving an impressive number of qualified parents and grandparents a chance to spend the much needed time with their family members in the Maple Country.
