Immigration, a clever lie from Legault: care less about it


While consultations on Quebec’s immigration policy for the coming years will begin next week in Quebec, the time has come to review the results of the Coalition Avenir Québec in terms of immigration.

“Less care of it”, this is how François Legault presented his government’s vision on immigration.

However, in the last five years, Quebecers have seen it as just a slogan. The reality is different.

Successful integration?

Reduction – The Legault government has opened the door to a large increase in temporary immigration. Last year, there were 300,000 temporary immigrants in Quebec, more than under Philippe Couillard’s liberal government.

Let’s be clear, although Quebec needs significant immigration to offset the effects of the labor shortage, stimulate economic growth and ensure the delivery of services to which Quebecers are entitled, accepting these workers is not can be done without a clear plan that provides for drastic measures. for integration, francization and housing, which is currently lacking.

Taking care of it – Unfortunately, despite the measures promoted by the CAQ in recent years, it is clear that after five years, the results are not there. Trust has been replaced by a danger that does not fulfill the efforts and aspirations of those who chose to come and build Quebec with us nor the expectations of Quebec society.

The inability of the Legault government to provide adequate francization services in a timely manner, the bureaucratic chaos of Francisation Québec, an immigration system characterized by delays that are longer than in other provinces, especially for of family reunification or even immigration. access to permanent residence for refugees identified there, who face a 25-year wait according to the current admission target, clearly shows us that this government has no control or attention to those immigration matter.

Expected strategy

The CAQ deliberately plays on the legitimate concerns of Quebecers who want an orderly immigration system that matches their openness to welcoming those who choose Quebec. He said one thing, reduce it and take care of it, and did the opposite. He admitted in a populist way for many years that the reception capacity of Quebec has been reached, while increasing temporary immigration, without ever submitting a study to measure this reception capacity.

At this time, it also failed to develop the capacity to receive Quebec or put measures to promote the arrival and harmonious integration of those willing to face the challenges of lack of work.

The government must roll up its sleeves, show a clear picture of all immigration destined for Quebec, but above all, announce a clear strategy that affects all aspects of reception and integration.

Quebec was built by successive generations rolling up their sleeves. Now it’s our turn to build a Quebec that everyone can be proud of.
