A Need for faster Immigration System

The immigrants from diverse countries have played a significant role in the economy of Quebec over the years. Hence, the economic plan of year 2015-16 has allocated $42.5 million for the next five years to support the immigrants and culturally diversified minorities, so that they can contribute more to the economy and development of the province.
