Immigration has played a major part historically in the growth of Canadas population Between 1901 and 1911 alone Canada received over 15 million immigrants representing 28 percent of Canadas total population at the time Recently however Canadas immigration policies and practices have come under scrutiny and criticism as increasingly larger numbers of people begin to question whether current progressive immigration policy is beneficial in the long run for Canada and Canadians Essentially Canada has begun to question itself whether its current restrictions on immigration are sufficient Throughout its history Canada has maintained numerous immigration policies many not surviving the life span of the government under which they were created Yet these policies although highly restrictive were not in the best interest of the country Many were established to protect the individual interests of the current government or they were established in an effort to maintain the government of the times essentially racist conception of Canada In fact it wasnt until 1962 that Canadas essentially all-white immigration policy was abolished In 1976 Canada adopted a points-based system where potential immigrants were assigned various points based on such things as age education and net worth This system was designed to prevent immigrants from being barred entry into the country based on race religion or creed Essentially those immigrants with sufficiently large personal savings or with jobs skills listed under the governments General Occupations List would be awarded more points thus increasing there chance of being granted admittance into the country Recently the government has adopted new policies to bring this system up to date Under current proposals new immigrants would have to demonstrate fluency in one of the official languages As well points would no longer be given out based on a potential immigrants occupation but their occupation must still appear on the new National Occupational Classification in order for them to qualify for entry The new system essentially places more responsibility on visa
