Canada's 2019 Federal Election: How will it affect Immigration Policies?

Canada is waiting to conduct a federal election in October 2019. Canadians will head to the polls next month to vote for a new federal government, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced today.  Immigration is expected to factor into election debates, but restraint is being urged.

The Liberal party of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is currently holding power, while there is a risk factor because the conservative party that has a real possibility of winning the election expected to be held in October. What would be the effect of the victory of either these parties on Canadian immigration? If neither of the parties wins, can the other parties affect Canada’s immigration laws?

Scenario 1 - Liberals Win The Liberal party of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has delivered good in terms of Canada's Immigration policies and trends. If Liberals win, we can expect their multi-year immigration plan to be delivered, which is to welcome 1 Million new permanent residents to Canada by 2021. Liberals have also made it easier for International Students to come to Canada. Recently the government, announced new Student Direct Stream (SDS) as well, Pakistan was also on the list of countries, which enables International students to get a study permit processing within 20 days. Liberals made it easier for international students to apply for PR after studying in Canada by receiving more CRS points for Canadian education and work experience. A liberal win might cause a decrease in the processing time for family reunification processes as well. Scenario 2 - Conservative Party Wins The leader of the Conservative party is Andrew Scheer. The Conservative Party website states that the party will ‘safeguard and emphasize economic immigration’ and ‘stand up for families and ensure that spouses and children can be reunited. Since there are no set levels of immigration policies that represent Canada’s best interests, there is a chance for the Conservatives to decrease, increase, or freeze the current levels of immigration. The Conservative government was the one that launched the Express Entry in 2015, but they accuse the Liberal government of tweaking the system. The conservatives likely want to allow more candidates with immediate employment expectations, or job offers, concentrating on immediate labor requirements of the employer rather than long-term national goals.

Conservative Immigration critic Michelle Rempel, the Minister-in-waiting, states ‘We feel this reform is needed to allow those who are currently using Canada’s asylum system to enter Canada for economic reasons, a clear alternative path to enter Canada that is focused on integration and self-sufficiency, and to allow our asylum system to be focused on those who are facing legitimate persecution.’ Scenario 3 - Neither the Liberals win Nor the Conservatives If neither party wins, at least one small party will have a chance to turn the will of the larger party, and immigration policy will be significantly influenced.
