Immigration lawyers quoted in the report stated that IRCC recently refused applications from nearly 100 per cent of students from Maghreb and Western African countries applying to study in Quebec.

“But it would be silly if I were to stand here and say that in a department of 11,000 people, if you look at the different operations of IRCC, to say that there is no discrimination,” he added.“International students are one of the groups that successfully integrate more and more so than just about any other group of newcomers,” Fraser said. “That’s a good thing, not just for the newcomer to Canada, but for our economy as well.

In a follow-up statement, Fraser’s press secretary noted that the minister intended to continue the work already launched by IRCC to “eradicate racism” within the department, including creating a task force dedicated to the task “full-time”, mandatory unconscious bias training for employees and executives and appointing an “anti-racism representative” within each sector of the department.

“In addition, employees paint a picture of an organization fraught with challenges at the level of workplace culture” and a “history of racism going unchecked.”

Where to start? Perhaps asking clients about their experience with Immigration Canada would be a good start. I’m anxiously awaiting the questionnaire.

where do the english speaking applicants go? quebec or other provinces who don't give direction

Another way of saying, “I want funding for looking busy and doing nothing”.

Oh really? Another socialist narrative to blame Canadians of being racist. This is how Socialist govt.'s work. They 'divide' races much like the Critical Race Theory (CRT). 1 group the oppressors the other group the oppressed. Pure Marxism

JustinTrudeau, fordnation and many others have said that discriminating against people is the most important and life saving you can do. Someone should tell the immigration minister.
