Immigration Plan

A Conservative government will work immediately to restore the fairness, order and compassion of our immigration system.

We will safeguard and emphasize economic immigration.Stand up for families and ensure that spouses and children can be reunited. Improve language training to ensure greater proficiency in English and French and newcomers’ ability to succeed economically and socially.

Improve credential recognition and make it easier for new Canadians who have existing skills that meet our standards to work here. We all lose out when doctors and engineers are not able to practice their profession. Ensure that our system prioritizes people facing true persecution – focus government sponsorship on the victims of the four atrocity crimes – and restore integrity to our system by supporting the consistent application of fair rules. Work to reunite survivors of genocide who have already resettled in Canada more expeditiously.

Do more to promote private sponsorships of refugees. End to illegal border crossings crisis by closing the loophole in the Safe-Third Country Agreement that allows some people to skip the line and avoid the queue. The Conservative Party has committed to setting immigration levels consistent with what is in Canada’s best interests. That number may change every year to reflect what Canada needs, and who needs Canada.
