    Credentials to be recognized

    New agency will help newcomers
    Landing fee to be cut, Solberg says

    A new agency will be created to “cut through the red tape” and recognize the foreign credentials of newcomers, says Canada’s citizenship and immigration minister.

    “Canadians pride themselves on their fairness, but how profoundly unfair that a highly educated professional from another part of the world should be driving a cab because his or her credentials aren’t properly recognized,” Monte Solberg told about 300 people attending the Public Policy Forum conference in Toronto yesterday.

    “It’s not fair that a foreign-trained doctor should spend years charting a course through a maze of rules and regulations before he or she can find suitable work, despite the growing shortage of doctors and nurses in Canada.”

    Solberg also said he’ll cut the Right of Permanent Residence landing fee in half “to make it easier and more attractive for newcomers to come to Canada.

    “Our efforts should be focused on welcoming newcomers and helping them fit in, not taxing them to death,” he said, adding that slashing the fee won’t mean less money for his department.

    Solberg plans to introduce legislation to extend citizenship to foreign-born children legally adopted by Canadian parents, putting them “on an equal footing” with native-born kids.

    He later told reporters he isn’t sure when the new agency looking at foreign credentials will be established, noting it will require co-operation from other levels of government, business, community groups and the academic community.

    Solberg also said details of the cut to landing fees won’t be announced until after the throne speech. And he confirmed there are no plans to either increase or decrease the number of immigrants coming into the country.

    Despite the lack of a time frame for the changes, it was welcome news to conference delegates, many from frontline agencies who work with some of the 230,000 immigrants who come to Canada each year.

    The aim of the conference was to underscore the importance of immigration to Canada’s social and economic health. Newcomers establish businesses that create jobs, boost the economy by increasing demand for local goods and fill niches in the labour market, according to a Public Policy Forum backgrounder provided to reporters.

    It also noted a growing number of newcomers are highly educated and skilled but have difficulty integrating for various reasons including language and cultural differences.

    According to research by the Public Policy Forum, there’s a higher rate of unemployment and under-employment among recent immigrants compared with those who settled in Canada years earlier and native-born workers who have similar education and skills.

    Though various levels of government and community agencies are working to help newcomers, Solberg admitted “the immigration program is under stress” and his department must do more to make transitions smoother. Reducing waiting times and processing applications more quickly is a must and will go a long way to reunifying families sooner, he said.

    Analizar la situacion y ser critico de ella o ponerse lentes rosados y ser mas papista que el Papa.

    Concuerdo con Silvia en que ojala mejore esta situacion que es el meollo de los problemas del inmigrante legal calificado. Porque si no se hace esto con Harper, mejor que muestren la propaganda en el extranjero solo a camioneros, gasfiteros (plomeros), carpinteros, electricistas, albañiles, "nannies" y "exotic dancers".

    "El camino al infierno está lleno de buenas intenciones" dicen en la tierra de donde yo vengo.

    El que no conozca a Harper y a los conservadores que los compre, yo no abrigaría muchas esperanzas sobre este tipo de iniciativas viniendo de los conservadores, después de todo, es el mismo partido reformista (Reform) reciclado, y los que tenemos algún tiempo en Canadá sabemos que la posición de ese partido en relación a la inmigración era "menos es mejor" (mis palabras, su posición).

    Entonces, miremos mas allá de las ruedas de prensa y veamos las acciones concretas que tome este gobierno (cuando las tomen, si las toman)
