Immigration Refugees And Citizenship Canada Collective Agreement

Canada`s immigration plan for 2020-2022 is expected to be presented to Parliament in March 2020. Total spending from 2017 to 2018 to 2022-2023 is influenced by several areas such as the increase in the reception of permanent residents; The establishment and integration of permanent residents into Canadian society; Assistance to provinces and municipalities for temporary accommodation for asylum seekers; receiving and providing temporary health care to refugees; Increased temporary housing volumes; and fluctuations in passport issuance during the 10-year business cycle for the Passport program. The IRCC promotes the rights and responsibilities of Canadian citizenship and issues safe and internationally recognized Canadian citizenship and travel documents to enable Canadians to participate fully in civil society, facilitating cross-border travel while contributing to international security and internal security. Canada will continue its migration diplomacy as part of the Global Refugee Sponsorship Initiative (GRSI), launched in 2016, which encourages sponsorship of refugees in the community abroad. In 2019, GRSI has created an international coalition of states dedicated to exchanging best practices for refugees who help refugees around the world. In 2020, it will be used to support local sponsorship of refugees, improve shelter for refugees and improve integration outcomes. In support of francophone minority communities, 13 Francophone Immigration Networks (French-speaking Immigration Networks) across Canada (excluding Quebec) bring together a large number of partners to welcome and integrate French-speaking and Acadian immigrants from Canada. These networks also contribute to the implementation of the Welcoming Francophone Communities initiative, a community-based approach to promoting newcomers` sense of belonging and connecting Francophone newcomers with their new communities. The activities and projects under this initiative are developed by a municipal council made up of representatives of French-speaking communities. Recommended activities will begin in 2020-21 and continue until 2022-23. Settlement services help immigrants and refugees overcome the specific barriers to the experience of newcomers to the United States so that they can participate in social, cultural, civic and economic life in Canada. During the period 2020-2021, the Department will work to honour the commitments made with respect to mandate letters to improve the effectiveness of the asylum system.

These include continuing to implement the 2019 Budget investments that have expanded the processing capacity of the asylum system and expanded a pilot project to increase efficiency in the processing of refugee protection claims while preserving the integrity and fairness of Canada`s immigration system. This will be achieved through ongoing cooperation with partner organisations, including the Asylum Systems Management Council. In addition, the ministry will continue to work with federal, provincial and international partners to address the challenges of irregular migration. The department is also focused on improving after-sales service through innovative new technologies. “Quaid,” a chatbot with artificial intelligence, provides automated answers to questions on social media and has provided more than 70,000 responses to customers since its launch in October 2018.
