Citizenship Row- Canadian Immigration Minister promised Major Changes to the Citizenship Act

By Rajneesh Kumar Posted 18, Feb 2016

visas default image In view of the whole debate, discussions, statements and chaos about the strict citizenship regulations for the new immigrants, the Canadian Immigration Minister, John McCallum has promised the major changes to the Citizenship Act of Canada in the coming few weeks. The key changes to the Citizenship Act might include the decision on the language test requirement for Canadian Citizenship.

The Government has received Requests for Language Test Elimination
Many Liberal MPs have requested the government to eliminate the language test requirements for new immigrants to apply for citizenship in Canada. The regulation with regard to the language test was implemented by the conservative government under Bill C-24, which now should be eliminated say the liberals.
There are several new immigrants who are failing to pass the language proficiency test required for the Canadian Citizenship. Especially the old age people coming to Canada on PGP visas or sponsored immigrants often find it difficult to achieve the required language proficiency level. The others are usually good assets to Canada as skilled workers, taxpayers, etc. however, when it comes to achieving a higher level of language proficiency they often fall short.

Advantages to Canadian Citizens
The Canadian citizenship often provides considerable advantages for the Canadians, i.e.

  • Voting
  • Applying and getting jobs meant for Canadian Citizens only
  • Running for political office
  • Getting a passport to travel internationally
  • Seeking support from Consulate in a foreign country
The people, who have already established themselves in the Canadian society and community and have become part of the Canadian economy, deserve to receive these rights and privileges, and hence, must not be denied Canadian Citizenship by the way of making the language proficiency compulsory for citizenship .
