What does IRCC think about my country?

IRCC recently released a new set of objectives that helps illuminate Canada's strategy in the Asia and Americas. This purports to help new immigrants with the immigration process.

IRCC recently released its strategic immigration plan for Asia & the Americas. The goals of this strategy involve collaboration with countries in both regions (particularly around the economy, and aid for refugees and asylum seekers), as well as promoting Canada’s immigration pathways and interests within these regions.


IRCC's objective in the region is to manage immigration and refugee protection.

It's important for IRCC to develop programs that will allow for a more equitable distribution of newcomers across Canada, one of which includes family reunification. Social integration programs are also an essential consideration because migration from Asia (and other parts of the world) is a growing trend. Through partnerships with partner governments, as well as connecting with communities, IRCC is looking to work towards managing immigration so that it suits Canada's socioeconomic needs.

Over the past few years, Canada has made refugee support and protection a key part of its policy; naming Afghanistan as one of its main priorities. They also talked about genocide in Xinjiang, China, and the Rohingya crises in Myanmar and Bangladesh, saying they will work hard to support those populations.

One of Canada's main goals is to maintain close relationships with other countries. The report lists a number of partner countries and outlines what relations Canada hopes to have with these nations:

Afghanistan: Recently, Canada has committed to taking in over 40,000 refugees from Afghanistan, which is helping to fulfill its objective of advancing refugee protection and offering support around the world.

Bangladesh: Canada intends to work closely with the Bangladeshi government on migration, which will lead to an expansion in the quality of services for refugees. One of Canada's main objectives is to protect refugees who are international.

China: The Canadian government is actively seeking talks with China in order to increase the quality of immigration to Canada while promoting continued economic ties. Economic ties are strained because of Canada's response to the treatment of Uyghur and Hong-Kongese populations within immigration measures set forth by China.

India: Canada's largest immigration partner India is a key country that Canada hopes to increase the quality of immigration from. IRCC will work to both protect the integrity of its programs in India and increase the size of immigration efforts from the country. The two countries will also work to promote economic and social ties while working towards Canada's interests.

Pakistan: Canada has been focused on increasing immigration from Pakistan and working with the government to offer relief to victims of the conflict in Afghanistan.

Philippines: For many years, the number of law-abiding Filipinos emigrating away from the Philippines is at an all-time high. This has led to IRCC embarking on a project which it hopes will solve this problem for those who want to gain legal immigration status, as well as promote regular immigration for Filipinos who wish to enter Canada.

The Americas

The mandate of the IRCC in the Americas is focused engagement to maximize Canada's influence in the region, protection of local values while sharing immigration expertise with other countries, and encourage regular immigration to support Canadian economic and social goals.

Every year, Canada will re-engage in the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees' global initiative to allow refugees and at-risk persons from throughout the world to find a new home. Canada pledges to accept up to 700 refugee claimants in 2023 and up to 1,000 in 2024.

Canada is looking to maintain the integrity of its immigration system as it seeks to promote its immigration programs. This will help Canada reach its goals internally while stabilizing the region.

Brazil: Canada is looking to promote immigration from Brazil and speed up the processing times for visas in order to increase bilateral partnerships with them. To do this, they will work with Brazilian authorities to create new pathways for immigration. Canada also recognizes how important it is to strengthen economic ties with Brazil.

Columbia: Canada will work with Columbian officials to come up with a plan that promotes immigration within the country, while also dealing with irregular immigration from there. They will also aid Venezuelans who are fleeing their country and seeking asylum in Canada.

Haiti: Canada will work with Haiti to help make immigration between the countries as simple and accessible as possible. In addition, Canada will aid asylum seekers and refugees who would like to move to Canada by providing assistance in terms of language and culture.

Mexico: Canada is looking to increase the number of regular migration efforts with Mexico to promote immigration pathways, like the CUSMA work permit program. IRCC will also work with Mexico to aid asylum seekers and refugees, and try to fix irregular immigration cases. Because Canada views Mexico as a key partner in the Americas, it looks forward to pursuing its strategic objectives with this country.

The Canadian government recently announced its immigration levels plan for 2023-2025. This will not only help them achieve the goals outlined in their Asia and America strategy report, but it will also put the concerns voiced by these communities first.
