“A priority of this government has been to make our immigration system more competitive globally and more responsive to Canada’s needs,” said Minister Kenney. “This framework complements initiatives such as the Action Plan for Faster Immigration; as they make our immigration system better meet the needs of our labor market. We want newcomers to be able to use their skills and work to their full potential. It’s good for them and good for the Canadian economy.”
