The paper looks at the purposes of provincial immigration policies and at the mechanisms in place to make those objectives a reality. The paper discusses the disconnection between Canada's objectives and results and explores what can be done to resolve these shortcomings. The paper also shows how Canada and its provinces may have no choice but to liberalize its immigration policy if it hopes to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.

From the Paper:

"More than anything else, it appears as though the chief purpose of federal and provincial immigration policy is to expedite the influx of the most talented and industrious immigrants possible. For example, the federal Foreign Credential Referral Office will "ease" the "assessment and recognition" of foreign credentials. As it stands, when the office is wholly operational, it will operate out of the Department of Citizenship and Immigration (Woods, para.1-5). To elaborate upon the initial sentence in this paragraph, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) seeks - among other things - to admit "immigrants, foreign students, visitors and temporary workers who enhance Canada's social and economic growth" (Citizenship and Immigration Canada, para.3)."
