Immigration to Canada is in chaos. The federal government’s response to the problems has been to shuffle much of its responsibility to provincial governments and to employers recruiting for ostensibly temporary work. In the resulting confusion, the national purpose for immigration is lost. Some easements, such as better settlement services and language upgrading, are widely urged but little done. At best, they are only band-aids. Fundamental changes are needed.
