In February 2023, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced the beginning of a continued, whole-of-society collaboration approach to capture a diversity of perspectives on immigration from a broad range of partners and stakeholders with its engagement initiative titled: An Immigration System for Canada’s Future.

Launched as a part of this initiative, an online survey invites input from individuals and representatives of organizations (e.g., chamber of commerce, elected representative, or settlement organization, etc.) to help shape a national vision for the future of Canada’s immigration system.  This is especially important given the changing landscape in Canada — immigrants could soon represent 100 per cent of the growth of the country’s labour force.

Note that this survey is anonymous and participation is voluntary, and will not affect the immigration status or decisions on immigration applications. This will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Click here for the link to the survey.

The survey will run from March 27 to April 27, 2023.

In addition to the survey for the public, the engagement initiative, which will continue throughout the spring, will include in-person dialogue sessions across the country and thematic workshops. The input gathered from this process will inform Canada’s future immigration policies and programs, to benefit communities across the country for decades to come.  Learn more about the engagement initiative.

According to Immigration Minister Sean Fraser: “Consulting clients, stakeholders and those with expertise in immigration in Canada is our opportunity to get your feedback on how best to support and strengthen our communities, from coast to coast to coast. I encourage all Canadians to take the time to share their ideas and perspectives, and help us shape an immigration system that will contribute to Canada’s success for generations to come.”
