Right to permanent residence for migrant workers

Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
4
November 2007
Whereas: 
  1. Emphasis on temporary rather than permanent migration creates a class of vulnerable and disposable workers;
  2. Canada’s immigration program should be revised to ensure that those who are able and willing to fill labour market needs can qualify as immigrants;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR demand that all those with temporary work permits, in all the different classes, have the right to apply for permanent resident status at the same time as they apply for the work permit, and should have the right to bring family members as is currently being done in Ontario for the Provincial Nominee Program.
