Human resources managers and foreign students alike were thrilled last week to learn of dramatic improvements to Canada’s Post-Graduation Work Permit Program.These changes signal the charting of a whole new course for the way Canada will be selecting professional immigrants in the years to come.Since 1967, Canada has been selecting foreign “skilled workers” on the basis of a point system that attempted to determine if the candidate was likely to be successfully established in Canada. The system was speculative at best and produced immigrants whose foreign education was often not recognized here and whose work experience abroad was not always valued.An obvious source of young and promising immigrants was the body of foreign students who were studying in Canadian colleges and universities. They were allowed to work in Canada for a year (or two in certain areas) after their graduation so they could acquire some study-related work experience. One year of work experience is an essential requirement of our skilled worker program. Once these graduates acquired this experience, they often had to return home since it was often difficult for them to have their work permits extended in Canada for long enough to allow their applications for permanent residence to be finalized overseas. Knowing that these young people may have to leave them in a year, Canadian employers sometimes refused to hire them, did so reluctantly, or resisted investing a lot of time in them. Many graduates who could not extend their status here returned to their home countries and re-established themselves there and never bothered to return. In letting them do so, we opted for foreign professionals with foreign degrees and foreign experience who only might be able to make it in Canada while turning our backs on young foreign graduates who had Canadian credentials, Canadian experience, and who were, in effect, a sure bet.Last week, Immigration Minister Diane Finley announced that, effective immediately, those students who complete a Canadian program of study of at least two years at a qualifying post-secondary institution can qualify to work in Canada for up to three years.They will be permitted to work in any field and will no longer be restricted to their field of study. Also, they won’t need a job offer to secure a work permit.The ramifications of these changes will be profound. Firstly, these changes will make Canadian universities and colleges far more attractive to foreign students.Foreign students pay much higher tuition fees in Canada than local students, thereby reducing the tuition burden on our own children. Secondly, Canadian businesses can now feel much more confident in hiring these graduates since it is much more likely that their employees will be able complete their applications for permanent residence without having to leave their employment. Finally, Canada will have an immigration system whereby we can actually “test drive” the candidate before accepting them as permanent residents here.

ဘြားသက္ရွည္



Is it her genes? Oldest known person turns 115 on Sunday
Rick Callahan, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
April 18, 2008 05:50
SHELBYVILLE, Ind. - Maybe it was a lifetime of chores on the family farm that accounts for Edna Parker's long life. Or maybe just good genes explain why the world's oldest known person will turn 115 on Sunday, defying staggering odds.

Scientists who study longevity hope Parker and others who live to 110 or beyond - they're called super centenarians - can help solve the mystery of extreme longevity.

"We don't know why she's lived so long," said Don Parker, her 59-year-old grandson. "But she's never been a worrier and she's always been a thin person, so maybe that has something to do with it."

Immigrants are changing the face of Canada

Visible’ minorities
Immigrants are changing the face of Canada:?Data
THE CANADIAN PRESS
April 02, 2008 11:02
For the first time in Canada’s history, visible minorities have surpassed the five million mark as a new wave of immigrants from Asia is changing the face of Canada at a staggering rate, according to new census data released yesterday by Statistics Canada.Visible minorities now comprise more than 16 per cent of the total population as their number skyrocketed by 27 per cent between 2001 and 2006, more than five times the previous increase of 5.4 per cent.The sharp growth in the visible minority population was largely due to the fact that three-quarters of new immigrants to Canada since 2001 were visible minorities, analysts said.South Asians — those who hail from such countries as India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka — now slightly outnumber the Chinese, who were identified as the top visible minority group in 2001, the last time the census was taken. Nearly 1.3 million people identified themselves as South Asian in the 2006 census — a 38 per cent jump over 2001.Blacks, Filipinos, Latin Americans, Arabs, Southeast Asians, West Asians, Koreans and Japanese round out the Top 10 visible minority groups — a list that’s relatively unchanged since 2001.Should current immigration trends continue, Statistics Canada predicts one in five Canadians will be a visible minority by 2017, when the country turns 150 years old.

Toronto exceeds national average
Locally, the visible minority population exceeds the national average. In what’s known as the census metropolitan area of Toronto, 42.9 per cent of the population identified themselves as a visible minority. A total of 27.8 per cent of the visible minority population was born in Canada. The largest visible minority population was South Asian (684,070), followed by Chinese (486,325) and black (352,220).

Scholarship helps youth pursue higher learning....

Scholarship helps youth pursue higher learning
Cali Jamal thought his future was over when he received his high school diploma at Toronto’s City Adult Learning Centre.

Despite an 85 per cent average, the former East African refugee was ready to give up his dream for a university education and continue his $7-an-hour job at a warehouse because asylum seekers were not eligible for student loans.

Although the law eventually changed in 2004, Jamal was able to get a head start at University of Toronto’s business school in 2003, thanks to the Maytree Foundation scholarship program designed to help financially stressed young refugees pursue post-secondary education.

Each year, the scholarship program awards eight to 10 refugee youth with a $17,000 scholarship, covering tuitions, books and living expenses. Since its 1999 inception, it has helped put more than 140 students through universities and colleges.

Maytree’s chair Judy Broadbent said the foundation started the program after noticing a growing number of young refugees being denied access to education — and a better future.
