Stage 1b: Gathering Information and Research

Fact #1 (Write down one fact that you found that helps you to argue your specific political issue and helps to support your Party’s position on the political spectrum)

Canada allows around 250,000+ immigrants into Canada each year.

Comment on the above fact (make reference to your Party’s goals/political spectrum beliefs):

That is a large number of immigrants entering Canada each year. Allowing so many immigrants into Canada each year is not fair to Canadians already living in Canada. These immigrants are competing for jobs with Canadians. This can also increase the unemployment rate and many could lose their jobs. Immigrants have benefits to the economy too, but not when 250,000 + are entering each year. From those, 150,000 are skilled workers that can benefit Canada. The number of total immigrants must be brought down to around 130,000 – 150,000 a year. That way we give a chance for some skilled workers, refugees and others to enter Canada while saving jobs for Canadians. Of those 130,000 - 150,000 we will make sure that at least 80% (104,000 – 120,000) of these immigrants should skilled and educated workers that can benefit the Canadian economy and society. Others should be people who are desperately in need of a Canadian Citizenship or Permanent Residence cards. Therefore making sure people in the country are served in the highest quality while still giving foreigners a chance to experience life in Canada.
