This paper develops the argument that Canada's current immigration laws do not work and closing its borders to migrants would not evoke a positive response for the national interest of Canada. The writer argues that the international image of Canada in the global village of civilized and humanitarian nations depends upon its accessibility to foreigners.

From the Paper:

"Does it follow then that Canada must admit anyone or everyone who calls at our doorsteps for entrance irrespective of our own national interest priorities. Again, the enlightened approach to the issue would be to admit those that are deemed to be able to serve our national interest, as the current Canadian federal immigration regulation would have implied. Or to grant entrance to victims of political oppression in their homeland by brutal authoritarian regimes or permit foreign migrants to stay here on human rights and compassionate grounds, such is the strategic orientation of our federal refugee programme."
