THE SUCCESS OF CANADAS IMMIGRATION POLICY
Welcoming Canada ImmigrantsIn the past few years, while many countries were quietly streamlining their Canada's Immigration policies to keep out potential immigrants, Canada was going in the opposite direction, actively and openly welcoming immigrants into the country. Given America s penchant for decrying the loss of local jobs to immigrants, one cannot help but wonder if Canadian citizens too felt the same way, however, survey after survey has shown that Canadians not only supported their country s open immigration policy but actually welcomed it. As a testimony to the success of the country s immigration policy, American President, Donald Trump has proposed to change the America s immigration system into a point-based system on similar lines to the one followed by Canada.
Canadas Immigration Policy: The Evidence In NumbersIn the previous year, Canada has taken in more than 320,000 new entrants, which is the most in the history of its immigration policy. The country now has one of the highest rates of immigrants per-capita, which was three times that of United States. Its success can be seen from the fact that despite admitting large numbers of immigrants, the attitude of local Canadians has been by and large positive. In a recent survey, 82 percent of citizenshad responded that immigration has a positive impact on the economy and many saw a mixing of cultures as one of the country s positive features. Canada's immigration policy has had its roots in the national interest and is paying off, the immigrant population in the country is one of the most educated in the world, and some of the most economically successful. Immigrants bring in money into the system and increase productivity in the country. They work harder and are less likely to depend on welfare than citizens. Even in the Government immigrants have contributed at the highest levels, even being elected as Governor Generals of their provinces.

Reasons For Canadas SuccessThe reasons for Canada's successful policy can be attributed to its point based system of appraising who can and cannot enter the country. Immigrants are vetted on a nine point scale which includes age, a level of education, language proficiency and other factors such as job skills, and funds to decide on whether or not to admit a person into the country. The country does not take into account the religion, race or ethnicity of the immigrant before admitting him, but looks at his employability and his ability to contribute successfully to the local economy. Unlike Americas family based system which is dependent solely on having a family member in the USA, the immigration system in Canada gives more weight to the persons ability to settle in Canada. This logical approach has ensured that only those people who are likely to make a positive contribution to the economic and social fiber of the country are admitted. In addition to this vetting process, Federal and local provincial governments sponsor programs that are dedicated to integrating new entrants into the communities that they chose to live in.
