CIC is helping an increasing numeral of Indian people to visit, study in and immigrate to Canada. For over a century, Canada has gained from the aptitude and uphill struggle of newcomers from the subcontinent. Approximately one million Canadians can outline their descent to India, and now rising figures of Indians are receiving the opportunity to visit family and friends in Canada, study at Canadian colleges and universities, or certainly immigrate to Canada as permanent residents.
Previous year, India was the top supply country of immigration to Canada, with further than 32,050 permanent resident visas issued to Indians, a rise of 13% from the previous year, and 53% further than the 3 year average from 1997 to 1999.
The figure of Indian students approved visas to learn in Canada has seen a sharp boost in the current years. By the ending of year 2010, it is anticipated that the figure of student visas that CIC issues to Indian students will have tripled over 2008 levels. This is in part because of the Canada-in-India Student Partners Program begin earlier this year by CIC in collaboration with the Association of Canadian Community Colleges.
This is good news for those submit an application to visit family and friends in Canada. At the same time as every visa assessment is made on the merits of every application, these improved figures show that CIC officials have been functioning harder, and more competently, to make it likely for a rising number of genuine travelers to visit Canada.
Minister Kenney commended Indian officials for the development made in addressing immigration fraud. One of the causes why lots of visa applications are discarded is that they comprise fake documents, or have been mismanage by corrupt immigration consultants.
