Canada to review immigration policy

Canada has decided to unveil sweeping changes in its immigration policy and is planning to take in as many as 300,000 new workers annually for the next five years to tackle a huge backlog of prospective immigrants.

Canada is on track to accept 245,000 immigrants this year, the very high end of last year's target, and will raise its target for next year to between 225,000 and 255,000, Immigration Minister Joe Volpe said.

"We have to start thinking about the Immigration department as a recruiting vehicle for Canada's demographic and labour market needs," Volpe was quoted as saying by The Globe and Mail yesterday.

"We are producing more jobs than the labour market has workers for. We're desperate for immigration," he added.

He said the country was facing a backlog of 700,000 prospective immigrants and pledged to tackle the problem by introducing a system to expedite processing of their applications.

Volpe said prospective immigrants currently face waits of as long as four years to have their applications processed in Canadian missions around the world.
