Conservatives Launch Pathway to Canada tour

Conservative Party of Canada | August 22, 2018

Ottawa, ON – The Honourable Michelle Rempel, Shadow Minister for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, and Gerard Deltell, Shadow Minister for the Treasury Board, today announced the launch of the Pathway to Canada tour.

“Conservatives have spent nearly three years calling on Justin Trudeau to put forward a plan to ensure Canada’s immigration system operates in an orderly, planned, and safe manner. These calls have gone unanswered and Canadians’ confidence in the system continues to plummet.

“As the next step in our policy development process, we are launching Pathway To Canada, a tour of the country to hear from policy-makers and stakeholders on how best to improve our immigration system.

“Specifically, we are looking for the best ways to integrate newcomers into Canada’s economic and social fabric, address labor needs, and ensure provincial support is adequately budgeted for.

“We are committed to doing whatever we can to restore Canadians’ confidence in their immigration and refugee system.”

The Pathway to Canada tour will seek input from Canadians, newcomers, industry groups, provincial counterparts, international partners, and civil society groups on concepts outlined here: https://www.michellerempel.ca/m_p_rempel_s_pathway_to_canada_remarks
