Ministers responsible for Immigration build on the success of Canada’s shared immigration system

The Federal, Provincial and Territorial (FPT) Forum of Ministers responsible for Immigration (FMRI) met to reflect on Canada’s immigration system. To make progress on Canada’s Vision Action Plan for 2016-2019, all Ministers agreed to work in partnership to ensure a fast, flexible, and efficient economic immigration system; strategic immigration levels planning; and effective settlement and integration supports for newcomers. This work will further Canada’s legacy as a diverse, inclusive and welcoming country.

Ministers reiterated support for Canada’s international obligations and humanitarian tradition with respect to refugees.
