After being granted 120 days to build a strategy, Sean Fraser, Canadian Immigration Minister, is expected to present a strategy of programs for converting temporary working immigrants and international students to Canadian PRs.
A parliamentary vote demanded that Immigration Minister Sean Fraser present a strategy for enhancing temporary residents’ access to routes to permanent residence. Fraser was allowed 120 days from May 11 to react, which is past the House of Commons’ scheduled time.
“It is part of the House’s rules and practice to stand in line for the bill’s creation and first reading before its information is being publicly disclosed,” wrote Heather Bradley from the Office of the Speaker. “If the government has chosen to create a strategy as recommended in motion M-44, and if such modifications to broaden immigration processes for temporary residents in Canada were to take shape into a proposal. To submit such legislation, a minister would need to postpone until the House was in session.
Jasraj Singh Hallan, the Conservative Party’s shadow minister for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), said he anticipates the plan being introduced as early as the House reconvenes the following week.
Hallan added, “We are expecting the House to convene and we would like the plan introduced on the very first day. A strategy that’s genuinely going to change someone’s life who wishes to immigrate here and become a Canadian citizen.
In accordance with the calendar, the House of Commons will reconvene on September 19, the day of the Queen’s funeral.
A representative from the office of NDP lawmaker and immigration skeptic Jenny Kwan said they anticipate Fraser’s response to be presented during normal hearings on September 20.
A representative for the IRCC stated on September 12 that “work is ongoing on the Government of Canada’s response to Private Member’s Motion 44 (M-44).” To fulfil Canada’s economical needs and support our development, discussions are currently in progress, and we look forward to contributing to the acceleration of the process of converting new immigrants into permanent citizens. Information will be released as soon as it is available.
A representative from the Library of Parliament asserts that a private member’s proposal, such as Motion 44, is not a legally enforceable agreement. This indicates that Fraser is not required to answer by his contract.
In spite of this, Andrew Griffith, a former director general of IRCC, claimed that politicians should always stick to their deadlines since failing to do so is humiliating.
There are no significant differences between the proposal and what the Liberals are already attempting to do, and all of the secondaries to the move are from the same political group as Fraser, the Liberal Party.
According to Griffith, “it’s basically supporting what the administration is saying they’re intending to do already.”
Fraser had also expressed his happiness to support the measure on June 21.
