Social - Immigration

  2. 2.  Refugees are people who are leaving their home country because of danger or persecution to go to another country. The government will only allow certain people into Canada that they think will help Canada and not make it worse. These refugees are considered immigrants and they have limited rights to what we have. Government will mainly take refugees in because of worldly crisis.
  3. 3.  The immigration and refugee protection act dates from 2002. They are the most recent made Canadian laws made. The last ones made were in 1867 when Canada became a country. It establishes certain groups of people who can come to Canada from other countries to make permanent homes here. It shows us the goals of these categories.  Some of the objectives of this protection act were pursuing social, cultural and economic benefits for all Canadians. Respect the bilingual and multicultural character of Canada. Support the improving of the minority official language communities inside of Canada. Share benefits of immigration and support an enduring economy across every region of Canada. Bring families back together in Canada. Encourage new immigrants to come to Canada to help establish a good life style that will help yourself and the people around you.
  4. 4.  Immigration aims to meet Canada’s workforce needs by allowing more new people into the country. Doing this will help our economical growth. Like many other industrialized countries, Canada is facing significant demographic changes. By 2025 and 2030 the number of births will equal the number of deaths in Canada. Immigration will be the only thing we have to increase our population unless birth and death rates change. These demographic factors are also slowing Canada’s labour force growth. Labour force growth is the growing number of people who can work. Sometime between 2011 and 2016 the amount of people joining Canada’s labour force will equal the number of people retiring. Immigration is the only way we can increase the amount of people joining Canada’s labour force.
  5. 5.  Immigration affects the economy by allowing skilled workers and professionals to come work for us. If some one is not a refugee or family-class immigrant they must qualify under Canada’s point system to enter Canada as an immigrant. These people who are skilled workers and business people made up 55% of all immigrants in Canada in 2006. Immigration affects health by only allowing people in who pass a  health test. This health test includes checking for tuberculosis, mental disorder or anything that could cause Canada harm, and HIV/AIDS. If the immigrant has any one of these problems the immigrant may refused entry. This doesn’t apply to people trying to get into Canada that are refugees or family-class. No one is excluded from Canada because of their race or country or  origin. They only judge people on their skills and education. Canada’s security is affected by immigration by people entering that are  a threat. People feel unsafe with terrorists around. Our politics are influenced by immigration because of new leaders  coming in from other countries such as Barak Obama.
  6. 6.  Canada’s immigration laws are different today then from the past because in 1951 Canada signed the U.N. Convention relating to the status of refugees  During the 1950 – 1960 era, Canada offered to shelter refugees in response to specific world crisis  In 1976, Canada made refugees one of its immigration categories. This meant that Canada would regularly let refugees in instead of just at times of crisis
  7. 7.  In 2002 made an act called the immigration and refugee protection act  This act was put in place to  save lives and offer protection to the displaced and persecuted  Fulfill and affirm Canada’s international commitments to protect refugees  Believe people if they say they are being persecuted  Offer refuge to people facing persecution, membership in a social group, people who face torture or cruel and unusual treatment or punishment
  8. 8.  The Singh Decision was when a man came to Canada seeking refugee status – The government rejected his case under the immigration act of 1976  The immigration act didn’t allow him to present his case in person or appeal to the government’s decision on his case  The supreme court said that this act violated section 7 of the charter of rights and freedoms  Section 7 of the charter of rights and freedoms is:  Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person, and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamentals justice  If the charter says everyone it means everyone physically in Canada
