Maxime Bernier's PPC policy on immigration
Yesterday, I unveiled our party’s platform on immigration, multiculturalism, and Canadian identity.
We will reduce immigration levels, from 350,000 each year under the Liberals, to between 100,000 and 150,000.
We will focus on skilled immigrants who bring economic benefits to Canada.
We will limit the number of immigrants accepted under the family reunification program, including abolishing the program for parents and grand-parents.
We will accept fewer refugees and focus on persecuted minorities.
We will declare the whole border an official port of entry and send back to the US anyone trying to enter illegally.
We will repeal the Multiculturalism Act and eliminate all funding to promote multiculturalism.
We will emphasize the integration of immigrants into Canadian society.
We will only accept immigrants who share fundamental Canadian values.
We will make birth tourism illegal.
We will take Canada out of the UN’s Global Compact for Migration.
Our immigration laws will be made in Canada, for the interest of Canadians.
