Liberal Government To Up Immigration Intake To 305,000 For 2016

The Liberal government will look to ease some of the conditions imposed on Canadians looking to sponsor their children and spouses living overseas making family reunification a priority, says Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Minister John McCallum.

McCallum was in Toronto on Tuesday where he announced the government’s plan to admit up to 305,000 new immigrants by increasing spaces available for family reunification and refugee resettlement.

“The government of Canada will make family reunification an important priority because when families are able to stay together, their integration to Canada and ability to work and grow their communities all improve,” McCallum said in a much-anticipated report tabled in Parliament on Tuesday.​


Family reunification is the most costly immigrant category.

We are heading into a major recession but the Liberals need more party members so open the floodgates…

We need a Trump not a Rona.

    It’s ethnic cleansing.

  • Goodbye Canada – soon to be the Northwestern Emirate of the Arab World Caliphate. Non-Arab Canadians will be chain gang slaves, or sex slaves, or domestic servants. Thank you, Justin Trudeau. You have probably already converted to Islam, so they will be treating you well (that’s why you don’t worry).

    • That’s our Justin;)

    “We need a Trump not a Rona.”
    In Canerduh? Good luck with that. Just look at how the relatively, sorta, kinda a bit conservative Harper was vilified. Not a chance anyone like Trump would get anywhere near the levers of power. The CBC would take out a contract on him if all else failed.

      First of all, the only guy in Canada with Trump’s notoriety would be Don Cherry (too old). Trump built his brand for 30 years. No one in Canada is close to that (except stupid Trudeau).

    I think Crowdifornia could spare some Mexicans. At least they are not Muslims.

    • Etobicoke_Gladiator

      Sad but true. I would much prefer Mexicans to Muslims. At least they’re Roman Catholic, like soccer, drink tequila, eat good food, and quite often actually have a decent work ethic. To boot, many of the Latino women are attractive and none are covered up with ridiculous oppressive hijabs and niqabs and burkas. I say bring ’em here!

  • Jay Currie

    I am trying to see how this is different from the 250,000 to 300,000 immigrants the CPC let through the door. OK, more granny visas to strain the healthcare system…but that’s about it.

    • Fran800

      There is no much difference. The Conservatives were disgraceful on the immigration file. Basically, we do not have a country any more.

      • Justin St.Denis

        The “threat” of being called “racist” really, really keeps the already-docile Canadian population in line. Funny that, when you consider we never grew any cotton.

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        Let’s face it, between corporate welfare, social engineering, not killing the CBC, immigration etc etc, the so-called “Conservative” Party proved anything but when in office. More like Grits Lite.

    • No real difference, I excoriated both.

  • Spatchcocked

    Trust me they won’t be white men or women. That’s the issue. That poncified little lisping drama queen will follow his old man’s lead. He’s a Marxist like daddy….

      Check out former immigration minister Conservative MP Jason Kenney’s twitter page. He is not only proud of the fact that he brought in 250,000 people a year into Canada but also how many of them are non whites (in the name of diversity). Jason Kenney reminds of the old song “one of these things are not like the other one” where he is the only white guy standing out in a group of third world immigrants.

        Old Jason was the biggest CINO of them all.

    • Canadian

      We`ll get a lot of grannies, old men, wives 2,3 and 4 disguised as sisters or cousins (they actually are..).
      All of them on welfare.
      Because some think we are rich…

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        Because its jizya to them, money we kuffar *should* be paying our Islamic overlords. Getting the system set up for when its more formal.

  • Spatchcocked

    We need a Trump is right….our ancestors built and fought for this thing called Canada…

    • Justin St.Denis

      But not really. Canada doesn’t possess the same revolutionary history as the USA. Very little blood was shed FOR a “free Canada” hence there is very little “free Canada” to protect or mourn. Canadians keep seeing themselves culturally as Americans, while the fragile political entity called Canada slides into the abyss and nobody seems to give a fuck.

  • Etobicoke_Gladiator

    Wonderful breaking news: Justin Trudeau plans to make Mississauga into a new Canadian caliphate and make Canadian law optional for many of the culturally sensitive “newcomers” to Canada. Perhaps it should be renamed Islamissauga in the next few years?

  • canminuteman

    What a total crock. “Family Reunification” does not aid integration. It does exactly the opposite. How would bringing the whole village over aid integration? It doesn’t and unless the people who said this are retarded they’re blowing smoke up our buts and they know it.

  • Shebel

    Every time I see MacCallum’s face I am forced to take an ativan with a beer chaser.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Just one Ativan? I admire your nerves of steel, Superman! 😉

    • felis gracilis

      Based on his speech and demeanour, I suspect McCallum himself does the same thing – – on an hourly basis.

  • Gary

    This is a ruse to hide the Liberals real plans to bring in 200,000 muslim refugees by the current influx and more later on that will sponsor relatives and no doubt get priority .

    Justin needs to pay back the islamists for their votes which means that he nust bring in the Anti-west pro-sharia jew-hating savages that will start the suicide bombing once the muslim population near 2,000,000 .

    The Toronto-18 muslims terrorist were born here , just imagine importing 100,000 + devout pro-sharia muslims that support hams and ISIS.

  • FivePointSpurgeon

    Even a Lowe’s would be better than Rona.

    • David

      ronas dead to me.

  • Brett_McS

    Genuine immigrants are those seeking to escape their family and its ways. I think that was a point K made a number of times. The rest are invaders.

  • Then let John McCallum house them.

    Demand it.

  • Canadian

    They forgot to mention that, during the election campaign?
    Not that it would have changed anything.
    We`ll have to wait for turdeau to become bald to see the gals vote differently.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Turdeau the Younger’s old man lied like a sidewalk to win elections, check out gas tax and wage and price controls for but two examples.
      “Not that it would have changed anything.”
      Not a thing, the chattering classes and the MSM had him all but anointed the day his arse hit the bench in Parliament.

      • Canadian

        He bought the CBC for a measly 35 millions.
        They`re licking his holy ass like he wasn`t PM yet.
        Maybe they are still waiting for the price he promised he`d pay.

        • DavidinNorthBurnaby

          $35 million, eh? So that’s 30 pieces of silver plus 2000 years of inflation.

          • Canadian


        • Will Quest

          raise the CBC’s budget by $150 million.

          • Canadian

            Maybe it`s for them to open an arabpig channel..
