When they were questioned for their views about Canada facing racial problems and Indian students misusing Canadian Government’s immigration policy and what are their views on this, they stated,” Canada is one of the most inclusive countries in the world. There are people from every religion, cast, creed, nationality, skin color, gender, sexual orientation who live together in harmony and call Canada their home.

There should be zero tolerance for any international student misusing or misrepresenting themselves in any form or manner or violating the laws in Canada. Off late, there have been a lot of incidents of street violence, rash car driving and other such issues, especially in the Greater Toronto Area created by international students. They should have stricter measures to deal with such incidents. A handful of such students shouldn’t be setting a bad example to the entire community of people who’ve given their sweat and blood to make a name for them in this country.
They further state that Canada has become a haven for Indian students and professionals. Canada is currently one of the only countries with an open immigration policy in the entire world. It provides world class education at very affordable and competitive rates. Especially with immigration becoming worse by the day in the USA, a lot of prospective students and young professionals are choosing to now study, work and settle in Canada.

Also, since they have advanced education, they easily qualify through and receive their PR.”
Timing is of essence in your plans to migrate to Canada. The sooner the better. The current Liberal Government has made it easier to immigrate.
