Statement from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce’s on Minister Miller’s Announcement on Immigration Systems

The Honourable Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, today released 'An Immigration System for Canada’s Future'—a report that lays out a pathway to strengthen Canada's immigration system.

The government’s recent immigration announcements are welcome. We’re happy to see that the Government’s immigration planning will take into consideration housing, healthcare and infrastructure, as well as immigration planning that will better align with the labour market and regional and sectorial specific needs. Immigration is one of the primary tools we have to address present gaps and future workforce demand, and the best immigration policy is that which considers opportunities to strengthen the economy, support business, and create prosperity for all of us. We’re also happy to see the government include some of our recommendations in its immigration report, released yesterday. It will be critical for the government to continue working with the business community to maximize our economic potential.
