Evaluating Potential Visa changes for Mexicans

Canada – Mexico Partnership (CMP)  has benefited both the countries. The CMP was started in 2004 as a bilateral project to encourage public-private cooperation between Canada and Mexico by the respective governments of former President Vicente Fox and Former Prime Minister Paul Martin. Participants include corporate leaders, stakeholders, and representatives of the governments of Canada and Mexico.

Mexico’s Role in Canada’s Labor Market

Mexico, which is frequently used as a model for international labor-mobility agreements, is still the leading source nation for the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program. Under the Temporary Foreign Workers Program, a record-breaking over 40,000 workers were welcomed to Canada in 2022. This acknowledges the vital contribution that immigrants from Mexico provide to Canada’s labor market, particularly in supporting the country’s agriculture industry. The number of workers with work permits from Mexico entering Canada increased by 28% in 2022. Since Canada is being lenient regarding immigration policies and facing labor shortages,  a lot of Mexicans see this as an opportunity to migrate to a better country. However due to this Canada is facing problems.

What is happening

  1. Amidst the nation’s housing and healthcare crises, there is mounting pressure on Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to effectively handle the unprecedented influx of immigrants.
  2. The United States is also exerting pressure on Canada to make sure that Mexicans do not use it as a temporary base from which to cross the border illegally. The elimination of the Canadian Evaluating Potential Visa requirements for Mexicans led to an increase in arrests in the US, suggesting a Evaluating Potential Visa incentive for illegal immigration via Canada.

“We talk about this issue and many issues that impact the migration of people,” U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told BBC’s chief political correspondent Rosemary Barton in an interview early last year.

  1. To reduce the number of arrivals of refugees, the Canadian government may apply Evaluating Potential Visa or other sanctions to Mexican nationals.

Public Safety Minister Dominic LeBlanc allegedly stated, “We’re looking at a number of measures that would, in fact, put us in a position to have done what is necessary to ensure that these flights directly from Mexico don’t become sort of an indirect way to get access to Canada and to claim asylum.”

  1. When entering Canada for purposes connected to the investment or trade of products or services, businesspeople who are citizens of the United States and Mexico are free from the LMIA requirements. According to the agreement, Canadians entering the United States or Mexico also enjoy similar treatment.
  2. The letter from Quebec Premier François Legault to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed the province’s incapacity to take in further refugees and asked for compensation

The ability to entering Canada from Mexico without a Evaluating Potential Visa undoubtedly explains some of the influx of asylum applicants, as Mexican nationals make up an increasing percentage of those coming in Quebec, according to the premier’s reported letter.
