Canada Immigration For Bangladeshi
This is the first drive-through Halloween in Toronto, I saw the news on the CP24 channel. On this beautiful autumn afternoon, the whole city is just a play of colors, colorful leaves, and Halloween. But what seems to be a depression around everyone’s mind Toronto, Canada, Bangladesh, America, including this depression all over the world. Covid-19 has caused a great deal of panic since March this year. There is no end to that panic yet, the second wave is going on everywhere. But how many new hopes and dreams did not start in 2020!
Moving To Canada
On March 12 last year, when Canada’s Minister of Immigration announced plans to bring in one million immigrants in the three years 2020-22, I was naturally very happy. Soon after, Covid-19 started, all plans were thwarted. Landing as a PR in August 2020 decreased by 64% compared to August 2019. Immigration Canada did not specify exactly how many people landed as PRs in 2020. However, they say, they are working to bring even half of the target of 3 lakh 41 thousand as PR. With health and safety first, and therefore travel restrictions and mandatory quarantine, immigrant landings have certainly been greatly reduced as a maximum of 72 hours prior to the Covid Negative Testing Report is mandatory. How many festivals, how many plans, how many dreams, how many festivals have risen from the daily life of all of us. How many people close to us have died, got sick in this epidemic. In general, no one’s plan is right. Man in one way, or another, man proposes God disposes of. No one has a hand in the will of the Creator.
Canada will take more than 1.2 million immigrants, 80 percent of whom are skilled
In Ottawa, Canadian Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino reads out immigration plans for the next three years.
Canada’s new plan will bring eligible immigrants outside of the big cities to specific less populated areas according to specific needs there. In 3 years, 60 percent of the skilled migrants will be taken through Express Entry, PNP, Agri-Food Pilot Program, Rural and Northern and Municipal Pilot Program. Allocations in Family Class, Refugee Sponsorship, Humanitarian and Compassionate, and Asylum categories have been increased.
12 lakh 33 thousand immigrants between 2021-23
Canada is the second-largest country in the world. All but a few indigenous people are immigrants in the vast country. Indigenous ancestors are also known as Red Indians. That is, their ancestors also came from other countries. Whatever it is, we are all settlers, we have taken the place of the tribals, we are indebted to them. We have a lot of responsibilities towards them, we should work and plan accordingly. Immigrants are therefore the driving force of this country. Despite trying hard to increase the birth rate in this country, it is not going to be successful, the number of elderly people is more here. The way Canada has tried to protect Canadians through humanity, science, and prudence during Covid-19, the way it has treated international students, visitors, workers, refugees, the diplomatic co-operation with neighboring countries America, the disputed China, the World Health Organization, and other world leaders. Has made Canada’s position even more glorious in the world. And so the desire to immigrate to Canada has grown all over the world.
Canada Immigration For Skilled People
On October 30 last year, Canadian Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino announced that 1.32 million immigrants would be brought in between 2021-23. The plan is to bring eligible immigrants outside the big cities to specific less populated areas according to their specific needs. Over the next three years, 60 percent of skilled migrants will be recruited through the Express Entry, PNP, Agrifood Pilot Program, Rural and Northern and Municipal Pilot programs. Allocations have been increased in Family Class, Refugee Sponsorship, Humanitarian and Compassionate, and Asylum categories.
Virtual Oath of Citizenship in Canada
The goal of the Minister is as follows:
64,01,000 immigrants in 2021,
64,11,000 immigrants in 2022,
There are plans to bring 64,21,000 immigrants to Canada by 2023.
This is by far the most ambitious plan in Canadian history. In 1913 alone, 4 lakh 1 thousand immigrants were brought to Canada. Canadians have no choice but to bring in more immigrants to create new jobs, to boost the Canadian economy by compensating for the loss of covid in all areas including healthcare, information technology, food sector, agro-food, farming.
There has been a mixed reaction inside Canada to Minister Mendichinu’s announcement. Many have said that where Canada itself is going to fall into a massive economic downturn due to Covid, what is the need to bring in people from outside? Covid-19 has pointed the finger at Canadian policymakers for how much manpower Canada needs, and so Canada will no doubt bring in immigrants for its own needs. But the problem is, you don’t just have to plan, you have to implement it properly. And in order to do that, we have to take timely modern measures, reduce the bureaucratic procrastination of immigration, and above all, increase the manpower to reduce the procrastination of the immigration process.
The Canadian government is working on a plan to bring in 64,11,000 immigrants in 2022 and 64,21,000 in 2023
What will reduce the procrastination of immigration
The protracted Canadian migration dates back to before Covid-19. And there is no end to the frustration. Humanitarian and Compassionate Ground Application Processing Time 36 months, 5,000 spousal sponsorship applications have been pending for more than 3 years. And so on September 19, thousands of protesters, dressed in red as a symbol of love, protested in various cities in Canada, including Edmonton, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver. NDP leader Jenny Cowan wrote a special letter to the Minister of Immigration demanding special temporary resident visas for thousands of spousal sponsorship applicants. The official immigration website provides an estimated processing time. There is a notice given that it is not possible to give the exact processing time for the epidemic. Prior to Covid, it took a year to process Canadian citizenship applications, with the first virtual citizenship being authenticated during the epidemic.
Canada will take 1.2 million immigrants in three years
Immigration interviews should be virtual otherwise targeting and processing delays in Canadian immigration will only increase. Hopefully, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada will meet its immigration targets very quickly by increasing its manpower and improving its digitalized modern system. Let’s think positive, keep everyone well, and keep everyone well. The demands of this small life are not too much.
