Live Chat responses from Canadian Immigration Minister

Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney engaged in a Live Chat through the Globe and Mail website a week ago, which allowed Canadians to ask questions to both the minister and Rob Oliphant, who is the Canadian Liberal Multiculturalism critic.

A series of well-rounded questions were asked, and several questions sparked miniature debates between Kenney and Oliphant. Questions included whether there were plans to increase or decrease the number of newcomers per year (Canada has the highest number of newcomers per capita annually with 250,000 people), how “boat” refugees should be treated, why processing times for family immigration applications seem to differ across countries (for example, spouses applying from South America can wait over a year while spouses from Asia may only wait a few months), whether including parents and grandparents in the family reunification program drains Canada’s social systems and how the government can remove the obstacles foreign-trained doctors face when trying to establish their careers in Canada.

With regards to how Canada treats and accepts “boat” refugees, such as those from last year’s Ocean Lady, the recent MV Sun Sea docking in British Columbia as well as the very recent arrival of a boat that docked in Atlantic Canada containing refugees, Minister Kenney said that the government needs to create a no tolerance policy in order to get the message to smugglers that those people, who pay them large sums of money to smuggle them, will not be accepted. When asked by the chat moderator when those developments may be seen, Kenney told him to “stay tuned”, as the government is working on ideas currently.

An interesting question in particular was how the government plans on spreading immigrants to smaller cities and towns instead of major centres like Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Kenney responded that the Provincial Nominee Program has reduced the number of immigrants settling in the three major Canadian cities from 80 per cent to 60 per cent over the last five years, with increased numbers of people settling in Manitoba, the Prairies and in Atlantic Canada.

Some of the initiatives though CIC have been indeed positive while others problematic as discussed at length in our blogs.

    Hello!

    I live in the United States. I want to visit Canada for tourism and possibly for meeting some friends over there. I work here in United states since a long time (more than 8 years now) and I hold work visa here.

    If I get Canada tourism visa and I am planning to go to Canada to enjoy my vacation (or I may not go if don’t get time off from my Company)

    My question here is if I quit my job here in the US to go back to my home country permanently but before going back if I want to visit Canada again will I able to visit on the same visitor visa? (Assuming my visa is multiple entry visa)

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    I have seen the requirement for Canada PR. It includes WES evaluation. I have done my Bachelors studies from India and I have done WES evaluation for the same. Recently, I have also completed my Masters of Science in MIS from USA. My question is that do I also need to evaluate my MS from WES? I am in doubt because US education system already have GPA system.

      I’m so sorry to hear about the confusion during your mother’s visa process. Applying for visas can be tough and troubling at points, this is why I always recommend the helping hand of an immigration lawyer. The number one reason applications have been denied is because the application has been filled out incorrectly or there are missing pieces. This is completely corrected by the help of an immigration lawyer. If an application has been denied because of missing documents you may have to pay for another application and wait for another processing time.

    Dear Mr. Minister,
    My name is Maher Haddad, and i am a Canadian citizen . I have a Master degree in electrical and computer engineering from UOIT university in Oshawa, and currently working as a maintenance manager in Bahrain.
    In 2010 i went to Syria to get married and bring my wife (Nancy Chalach) to Canada. However, i got stuck there due to the civil war that paved the way to many other reasons that hindered my going back, and i had to stay there till 2014 . In 2014 i got a job opportunity in Bahrain and i thought it would be my chance to run away from the ongoing war first and to get some money for my family plane tickets and expenses in Canada during the first months. Now i have a daughter (Julie) who also has a Canadian citizenship. The problem now is that when i decided to leave to Canada for good and applied for a visa for my wife; the Canadian embassy in UAE (Abu Dhabi) refused to grant her a visa for vague reasons leaving me puzzled on what to do next. Now i am stuck in here with an unsecured job after they had known about my plans, and they may fire me at any moment leaving me no choice but to go back to Syria which is extremely dangerous. i can not go alone to Canada and leave my family to their destiny whether in Bahrain or Syria and i do not know what to do. I wonder how a Canadian man and a Canadian kid can not take their wife/mother with them and how come the Canadian embassy does not consider the serious situation i am having now. I am seeking your kind consideration and help if there is anything that you can do for us for which i will be highly grateful. I already contacted the Canadian embassy in Abu Dhabi many times either via emails or direct calls, but they did not answer my emails or phone calls.
    Please help me for i am so desperate.
    Yours sincerely,
    Maher Haddad

    My inquiry about Proof funds,
    Me and My family trying to immigrate to Canada through FSW/PNP. By Federal Income Table, 2016 Table 3 pointed for 4 person I should show 45,206 CAD. My wife is Principal Applicant and her bank balance is over 15,000 CAD and the rest amount will show through my bank account. I am doing a partnership business in Kuwait with one Kuwaiti Citizen person. As per Kuwait law You can’t get license or you can’t buy property own your name. so when I need to show the proof fund am going to withdraw my partnership and adding those money to bank account (10000 KWD = 64000+CAD). But the problem is when showing 3 months statement it will show I just added those money so Officers will think fraud/manipulated? I don’t have valid paper to show it’s my own money because we just have normal paper contract that not officially valid to show. In my case what should I do? I am totally disappointed this time.

    I had applied for a study permit to study in Canada but I have been refused. All of my criterias have been met including financial support, medical exam and SOPs.
    The reason I have got is:

    Your proposed studies are not reasonable in
    light of one or more of: your qualifications,
    previous studies, employment, level of
    establishment, language abilities
    or your future prospects
    or plans.

    This is really vague and I do not see how taking a computer course is not the best for me as I did have it in my high school.
    My IELTS was good( 7.5/9.0) and my IGCSE(10th- 75% in computers) . My grades fluctuated in my A levels 12th-(42% in computers) but the college has given me admission. Do you think that there are chances of acceptance if I re-apply?

      Hello Suny. A study visa is one of the most difficult to obtain because the reviewing officer needs to make 100% certain that you will return home after your studies are complete.

    2. Started Working as Marketing Consultant from April 2009 to November 2010.

    i.e. 19 Months in total continuously

    3. Quit Job and started doing MBA in between and finished in January 2014.

    4. Started working again as Marketing Consultant from November 2014 to until.

    i.e. 17 Months continuously.

    So, my total experience which including (study break) is 3 years.

    My question is as Express entry says below :::::

    How many years of skilled foreign work experience do you have? It must have been continuous, paid, full-time (or an equal amount in part-time), and in only one occupation.

    then how should I calculate my points based as I have break in between of total experience ??Should I count only 1.5 years or I can add experience before masters as it is in same job title

    Hi There,

    I am an India citizen currently residing in Canada as international student. Initially I was enrolled in a 2 years diploma program, during my last semester back in Dec 2014 I applied for request to graduate but even before graduating and during that semester itself I changed my program from 2 years to 3 years. I was under the impression that since I changed the program, my request to graduate form will not be considered. But college actually graduated me from my previous program and I never received any notification from them that your diploma is ready to pick up or we are graduating you. Now I am getting a full time job opportunity and I requested college to change my program from 3 to 2 years so that I can apply for my post graduate work permit. Their reply is that since you have already graduated from 2 years program we cannot process this and blame it on me for not having enough information about college rules and policies. Even till now my diploma is in College as I was not aware of it. According to immigration rules you have to apply for post grad work permit with in 90 days of graduation. Is there any way I can get help on this because I don’t want to miss the job opportunity?

    Thanks,

      Hello Anshul. Thank you for writing to us. It is unfortunate that there is an error made by your college. This is something that you must resolve with them. The immigration rules for a post graduate work permit are clear; you have to apply within 90 days of graduating. If you are interested in exploring other options for staying in Canada, I am going to suggest that you contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to plan the best strategy for you.

    I am a Canadian citizen and live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

    I have submitted my application to sponsor my father who resides in Cuba, for his application to become a permanent resident in Canada.

    In both 2014 and 2015 my application was rejected because it was received after the 5000 cap was reached.

    On January of this year I submitted the application for the third time, getting on time to the Mississauga Case Processing Centre. Unfortunately a signature of my father was accidentally missed from the last page of the form “IMM5476E – Use of a Representative”. So, once again my application was rejected and returned to me. On the explanatory letter accompanying the returned documents, CPC Mississauga states that “No placement within the cap has been reserved for your incomplete application.” so I will have to wait for another year.

    My big concern is that my father is 87 years old and a widower. I have done some research myself on available health insurance for visitors to Canada. As far as I know, Canadian insurance companies cover persons who are 89 years old or younger. If my dad does not get a permanent resident status before the age of 90, he won’t be able to have any medical coverage at all, and therefore he won’t even be eligible for a supervisa which requires the applicant to have medical coverage.

    I wonder if there is any way to prioritize my case due to my father’s age. It is his desire and mine to spend the remaining years of his life with his family together. So far this has not been possible.

    Is it viable to apply for permanent residence for my father on humanitarian grounds ?. If so, what would be the procedure?

    On the other hand, is there any way to request CIC to reconsider my case, based on my father’s age, allowing us to complete the missing information and re-submit the application?

    I have read that CIC is currently processing applications received in 2011, meaning that my hopes of having my father obtaining his permanent residence are practically reduced to zero, because of his advanced age.

    I sincerely appreciate in advance your time and advice.

      Hello Elena. It must be so frustrating to lose the precious years because of the quota being filed, and then because of a signature omission. It sounds like your dad is made of strong mind and body! There are several options that we can look at. Parental Sponsorship, Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds, and a Super Visa. Let’s get your dad here as soon as possible. I am going to encourage you to contact us to make an appointment to talk with one of our immigration professionals who will be able to plan the best strategy for your dad.

    Hello,

    I am 20 years old and me and my siblings were sponsored by my dad when i was 14 and now we might get deported. We have applied for our citizenship and since he applied when i was 16, i didn’t have to take the test and neither did my 19 year old sister. I started and finished high school in Canada and now I’m in the paralegal/law clerk program and my sister is in university for psychology. Im scared that since my dad was the one to sponsor us, we might get deported with him. if so, is there any way that me and my sister would be able to stay? My other sister turns 18 in February and my brother is only 15. What would be an option for at least me and my sister to keep living in Canada since we are adults?

      Thank you for your post. Generally, there is no deadline for you to travel once you have the Visitor Visa issued in order to activate it. When applying for one you need to specify the purpose of your visit and the timeline in which you would like to travel; my suggestion to you would be to apply for your Visitor Visa closer to when you feel you can make arrangements to come visit.

      Thanks for the question. In your situation, it may be faster to do the spousal sponsorship, and as long as your husband is a Canadian national, then it does not matter where you get married. This is a relatively complex process as there is a lot of paperwork involved and a lot of supporting documentation that you will need to properly present to the immigration officers, and so it would be highly advisable to speak with one of our experienced immigration lawyers who will help guide you through the process step-by-step.

    My husband’s qualification is Master Public Administration (HR), a degree equivalent to MBA. He has a work experience of 6 years as Purchasing Manager for marble blocks and general items. Does he require any diploma or any other degree to qualify for the NOC 0113? Does this purchasing come in units specialized materials or industrials products?

      Hello Mrs. Ibrahim,

      Thank you for your post. Your husband may qualify under the Federal Skilled Worker stream which has just undergone some changes as of May 1, 2014. The FSW stream uses a point system where an applicant is assessed according to various factors that will indicate whether there is a strong likelihood that the applicant and dependents will successfully establish in Canada. An ideal candidate for this program will possess employment skills and experience compatible with occupations that are available to prospective immigrants to Canada.

      Your husband will need to show proof of completion of the degree you have mentioned and will be required to have his education credentials evaluated for the application.

      In order to assist you please provide us with more information using our free assessment and we will be able to help determine your eligibility under this program and other immigration programs that Canada has to offer. http://www.visaplace.com/immigration-assessment/

      Hello There,

      Your occupation is on the list of the eligible occupations and you might be eligible under FSW class. And whether you should accompany your dependant to Canada is a decision you have to make, and if they are over 18 years of age they must undergo and present police clearance certificates whether they accompany you to Canada or not. However, we need more information in order to assess your eligibility. please complete our online Immigration assessment form and a professional Immigration practitioner will get back to you with your enquiries.

    I turned 19 on April 16, 2014. When I was 7 my family moved from The Netherlands to Canada. We have lived her for 12 years now. However, all of the documents expired in 2010. My parents haven’t renewed any of our documents since. I have applied for my PR Card and have received that in the mail just recently. Now I would like to apply for my Dutch passport, but since I turned 18 over the years the documents have been expired, I will be needing my mothers or fathers valid passport and PR Card to apply for my Adult Dutch Passport. My question is, is there a way around me applying for a dutch passport without my parents paper work since theirs is invalid? If so, how could I continue the application process?

      Hello Berdine,

      Thank you for your question. An immigration practitioner in the Netherlands will be able to answer your question as it relates to processes there. However, there are certain applications that can be done in Canada that could potentially get you copies of your parents old passports and PR cards. If you would like to discuss this potential please fill in an assessment at http://www.visaplace.com and will contact you for a consultation to discuss that matter in detail.

    unfortunately we do not have any shared bank accounts and the rental agreement is under his name only .

      Hi Mona

      It may be possible to have him sponsor you as a common law spouse but that will not be easy given that you do not have many documents that show you are tied together as a common law couple. Also you have to show that you have lived together for at least one year proceeding the application. We handle cases like these. There are some other ways to show you are common law couple such as getting affidavits etc. You can contact us directly for guidance.

      Hello Jaspreet
      I am not sure what you are asking. If your aunty is not a blood relative then she has no relevance for your immigration to Canada. If you are thinking of having her “cover up” or lie about her situation, that is a totally wrong approach. Not only is such action a criminal offence whereby she could be charged, you as an intending immigrant could also be refused and barred from entering Canada due to misrepresentation. If you wish to immigrate to Canada, you should get a proper assessment.

    Hi I am a Philipino married to a Canadian spouse. Can I apply for permanent residence under the spousal sponsorship category while I am in Canada on a temporary resident visa or is it better to apply in the Philippines. Thank you.

    Reply
    1. Alicia Kim

      Dear MJ,

      You may apply for a spousal sponsorship application while you are in Canada on a temporary resident visa. We have a few clients who apply for their sponsorship application while they are in Canada on their visitor visas. Alternatively, you may submit your sponsorship application first while you are in the Philippines then apply for a temporary resident visa.

      In these types of situations, what’s more important is that you prove “dual intent”. This means that you wishes to become a permanent resident at the same time you want to come to Canada temporarily as a visitor. As visa officers will look closely into whether you will return to your home country after your short visit to Canada as a visitor, your pending or future permanent residence application under the spousal sponsorship category will likely raise a flag on your visitor visa application.

      For this reason, we have had many clients, especially from South Asia and Eastern Europe, where their visitor visas are refused because they have pending or future spousal sponsorship application. To be successful, you have show that you have dual intent and your intent to permanently relocate to Canada won’t necessarily affect your intent to visit Canada temporarily. This requires clear legal arguments and sufficient documentation.

      As such, I highly recommend that you consult with a qualified immigration lawyer to carefully prepare a strong application in order to not to get refused entry.

      Hope this helps.
