Canadian visa law changes 'could help skills shortage'
Canadian immigration could be the answer to the potential skills crisis on the horizon in British Columbia. With a predicted one million new job openings set to hit the Canadian province of British Columbia over the next five years, but only about 650,000 students set to graduating from high school over the same time period, a need for skilled workers has become a necessity.
Speaking to the Globe and Mail, Mr Hochstein said: "I take heart in the fact that politicians have realised that the [immigration] system is just completely broken. He added that using old ideas t solve the problem will not work and it takes "a more dramatic approach". Proposals to change the laws of Canada immigration would mean that the immigration minister Dianne Finlay would have the power to instruct immigration officers on the number and type of applications which get processed.
Canada welcomes new immigrants: The Canadian Visa Bureau can assist skilled workers interested in Canadian immigration. More information on Canadian visas is available on the website. Anyone applying for a Canadian visa should begin by completing the online Canadian visa application to see if they meet the legislative requirements.
