Immigration Lawyer Michael Niren in Yahoo News

Yahoo News Canada recently published an article titled, “Should Canada’s immigration policy favour poor and oppressed or educated and rich?”, with commentary and debate from a number of immigration experts including our own immigration lawyer Michael Niren.

He said:

“Canada’s immigration history is based on family reunification. This means that a main objective in immigration policy is to bring families together over vast distances. Many family members of Canadians are indeed economically and socially oppressed in their home countries. I agree that Kenney seems to have lost site of this.
However, the other aspect to Canada’s immigration policies are to compete globally. We need educated, skilled works; we need investment in order to compete. Canada must attract the best and the brightest if it is to fill its labour force especially given our aging demographics.”

Canada’s immigration policies should serve both a humanitarian and economic purpose. It’s not impossible to help others while helping ourselves.
