Canada’s Federal, Provincial, and Territorial Immigration Ministers Pledge Continued Collaboration to Strengthen Immigration System

Ottawa, Canada – May 10, 2024 In a landmark summit, the Forum of Ministers Responsible for Immigration (FMRI) convened to chart the future course of Canada’s immigration policies. Immigration ministers from across federal, provincial, and territorial governments pledged to strengthen their collaborative efforts to enhance the country’s immigration system. Key Takeaways from the Summit Strategic Plan for Immigration: Central to the summit was the unveiling of the Strategic Plan for Immigration (SPI) for 2024-2027. This comprehensive plan outlines a vision for a flexible, timely, and effective immigration system designed to maximize the economic and social benefits of immigration across all regions of Canada. Collaborative Efforts: The ministers emphasized the critical role of collaborative governance in managing immigration priorities. This includes meticulous planning of immigration levels, economic immigration strategies, and the settlement and integration of newcomers. Economic and Social Benefits: Recognizing the pivotal role of immigration in driving the nation’s economy and enriching its social fabric, the ministers underscored the importance of a well-managed immigration system to ensure these benefits are equitably distributed throughout the country. Public Services and Integration: Effective newcomer integration is contingent upon robust public services. The ministers concurred on the necessity for sustained collaboration to fortify the immigration system and to reinstate funding to employment services under the Labour Market Transfer Agreements (LMTAs). Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) The PNP was lauded as a critical tool for addressing regional labour market needs and supporting economic, cultural, and societal objectives. Discussions also highlighted the role of immigration in enhancing the vitality of Francophone communities outside Quebec. Temporary and Permanent Residents: A balanced approach to the influx of temporary and permanent residents was debated. For the first time, the federal government plans to include temporary residents in the annual immigration levels plan, aiming to reduce their population to 5% of Canada’s total population. Labour Market and Cultural Diversity: Temporary residents were acknowledged for their substantial contributions to Canada’s prosperity, labour markets, and cultural diversity. The ministers called for strategic management of any reductions in temporary resident volumes, ensuring alignment with labour needs in key industry sectors. The 2024 FMRI Summit represents a unified effort by Canadian immigration authorities to tackle the challenges and leverage the opportunities presented by immigration. The concerted focus is on ensuring the country continues to benefit from the contributions of newcomers while maintaining robust support systems for integration and public services.
