Plan de inmigración de Quebec para 2013: la provincia espera recibir al menos 51.000 nuevos residentes
El Gobierno de Quebec presentó sus previsiones en cuanto a la inmigración para el año 2013, sin muchos cambios pero con varios puntos a remarcar.
 
La ministra de Inmigración, Diane De Courcy, presentó el documento ante la Asamblea Nacionalhace unos días, según reporta el portal Immigrant Québec, en el cual se siguen los planes pautados por el anterior gobierno para el periodo 2012-2015.
En base a los datos hasta agosto de 2012 y las proyecciones para el resto del año, Quebec debería recibir en este año entre 51.800 y 54.400 nuevos inmigrantes, ligeramente sobre las proyecciones hechas por el ministerio a finales del año pasado.
De este total, cerca del 70% debería ser parte de los llamados “programas económicos” (trabajadores calificados, inversionistas, empresarios). De igual forma, los datos demuestran que 7 de cada 10 inmigrantes deciden establecerse en la región de Montreal.
Así mismo, entre el 64 y 65% de los nuevos residentes en 2012 deberían tener conocimiento del francés. Para las categorías económicas, este porcentaje sube a casi el 80%.
Los objetivos para 2013
El plan del gobierno de la provincia prevé la entrega de entre 46.200 y 50.800 Certificados de Selección de Quebec, el conocido CSQ. Esta cifra está ligeramente por debajo de lo proyectado para 2012.
En parte esta disminución se debe a las situaciones excepcionales que ocurrieron en los últimos años, como el terremoto en Haití y las crisis en los países árabes, que obligaron al gobierno a tratar casos especiales. También es una consecuencia de la decisión de Quebec de detener la recepción de solicitudes de residencia permanente hace unos meses, con la finalidad de no “sobrecargar” el programa.
En el plan está entregar entre 38.000 y 40.000 CSQ para trabajadores calificados y entre 5.000 a 7.000 para empresarios.
Casi la mitad de los CSQ que serán entregados para trabajadores calificados serán a ciudadanos de países africanos, en segundo lugar los de Europa, Asia y en cuarto lugar de América, con un mínimo de 6.300 CSQ y un máximo de 6.600.
Todo esto significa que para 2013 Quebec planea recibir entre 51.000 y 53.500 inmigrantes, prácticamente las mismas cifras planificadas para 2012. De estos entre 35.500 y 37.200 serán parte del programa de trabajadores calificados.
Entre 10.400 y 10.700 personas llegarán a la provincia a través de los programas de reunificación familiar, mientras que entre 4.700 y 5.100 lo harán bajo la figura del refugio.
Una de las cosas que cambiará para 2013 es la repartición geográfica de los seleccionados. El 30% de los inmigrantes vendrán de África, el 28% de Asia, el 23% de América y el 20% de Europa.
El gobierno diseñó este plan luego de un periodo de consultas que se ha desarrollado durante todo este año. Entre las conclusiones que se presentaron, y sobre las cuales Quebec hará énfasis, están:
  • Aumentar a 50% la proporción de trabajadores calificados con experiencia en profesiones que el mercado laboral de Quebec necesita con más urgencia.
  • Aumentar la proporción de trabajadores calificados que manejan un elevado nivel de francés.
  • Mantener la proporción de inmigrantes menores de 35 años entre 65 y 75%.
  • Mantener por encima del 65% la proporción de inmigrantes que solicitan la residencia a través de programas económicos.

Kenney set to fast-track foreign students for immigration

 


 
Immigration minister wants qualified newcomers to integrate quickly

CBC News

Posted: Oct 31, 2012


 Immigration Minister Jason Kenney has announced that he wants to admit more foreign students currently studying in Canada as permanent residents and potential citizens, though he also plans to maintain Canada's overall immigration level at the same tally that's been in place since 2007 — between 240,000 to 265,000 people.
 
Flanked by young foreign students from Carleton and the University of Ottawa, and fronted by a large sign that said "Faster Immigration," Kenney said Wednesday he is expanding the number of admissions under the Canadian Experience Class, which aims to recruit and retain international students who have studied and graduated in Canada as well as temporary foreign workers who speak one of Canada's official languages and already have Canadian work experience.

Up to 10,000 permanent residents will be accepted next year in the Canada Experience Class, up from 7,000 in 2012 and 2,500 in 2009.

Last month, Kenney's department marked its 20,000th immigrant under this class, after five years in existence. Admitting up to 10,000 in a single year represents a big jump.

The minister's annual immigration plan must be tabled in Parliament each year by Nov.1. It sets overall targets for how many newcomers will be issued visas to be admitted to Canada from abroad, as well as how many students and temporary foreign workers already in Canada will be allowed to stay.
 
Pointing at the students behind him, Kenney said, "These are the kind of bright young people we are trying to recruit." In the past, Kenney said, these kinds of students would be told to leave the country and apply for residency which could take up to eight years.
 
Kenney said that immigration is a tool to address the problems of Canada's aging population and shortage of certain types of skilled workers. "But we must do a better job of selecting those who can succeed quickly, who can integrate quickly, who can find and keep good employment, who can start successful businesses and add to Canada's prosperity."
 
"The data tells us [what to do]," continued Kenney. "The reforms we're making are based on evidence, on research and on data that tells us that the immigrants who do better over their lifetimes in Canada are those with a higher level of language proficiency in Canada and those with Canadian degrees and diplomas."

'Under pressure to increase immigration'

Kenney said he was under pressure from some provinces and from some interest groups to increase immigration levels. He accused the NDP of wanting immigration numbers to rise to half a million newcomers a year. But, Kenney said, he was very aware of polls suggesting that Canadians view immigration less favourably than in the past, partially because, he thinks, the unemployment level of immigrants is 14 per cent.
 
The NDP immigration critic Jinny Sims said she was disappointed that the government was cutting back on the family reunification that allows immigrants to sponsor their parents and grandparent. "This is a government that talks about families, and the importance of families. And yet once again it has abandoned the hundreds of thousands Canadian citizens by not increasing the numbers under the family reunification class."
 
Kenney said that his department is actually increasing the numbers for family reunification, especially for immigrants' parents, going from 17,000 a year to 25,000 a year. But he added that Canada cannot admit what he called "unlimited numbers of seniors."
 
Sims also accused the government of being obsessed with temporary foreign employees, such as mining workers, and said that companies, permitted to pay temporary workers lower wages, are actively recruiting them from overseas.
 
Kenney said that he was disturbed at the number of temporary workers who are often in jobs that can't be filled by Canadians, which he found "bizarre." But he added this was only a "last resort" for companies, and that his government is careful not to do anything that would stall economic growth.
 
"We are rebuilding our economic immigration programs to get higher levels of employment, higher levels of income, more immigrants realizing their potential contributing at their skill level, rather than coming to Canada and being stuck in survival jobs and being underemployed.

  • : Ecología y sostenibilidad socioambiental, énfasis en conservación de ríos y ecosistemas, denuncia de impacto de megaproyectos. Todo esto es indesligable de la política y por ello esta también se observa. Ecology, social and environmental sustainability, emphasis on conservation of rivers and ecosystems, denounces impact of megaprojects. All this is inseparable from politics, for it, the politics is also evaluated.
