Canada / Immigration / Other provinces not getting same control as Quebec says Kenney

The federal government is not prepared to cede control over immigration to the provinces to the degree it has for Quebec, despite pressure to do so from Canadian premiers, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney said Friday.

“I believe that newcomers from around the world arrive in Canada not primarily to become Albertans or Nova Scotians, but rather to become Canadians and so I think it’s very important for the national government to retain an important role in the selection of newcomers,” Kenney said.

“Since coming to office in 2006, we’ve massively increased the number of immigrants who are selected by provinces, giving up that space from federal allocation.”
