Default 67 points

Let me get right to the point. Today I am proposing several changes to
the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations.

These changes will allow more skilled workers to have their
applications assessed under the provisions of Canada's old Immigration
Act. They will also lower the pass mark for federal skilled worker
applicants.

The proposed changes reflect the principles of fairness, openness and
flexibility which form the core of Canada's immigration program.

They respond to the needs of many newcomers who applied to come to
Canada under the previous rules, and they will continue to help us
attract and retain the skilled workers businesses will need to
effectively compete in a global economy.

First, I am proposing that the applications of everyone in the
previous economic applicant category who filed for permanent residency
status before January 1, 2002 be assessed under the provisions of the
former Immigration Act.

This represents another step in our efforts to bring a fair end to the
old system, while ensuring that the new system is introduced in the
most open and transparent way possible.

Second, I am proposing changes that will lower the pass-mark for
federal skilled worker applicants in the system who have not yet
received a selection decision from 75 to 67.

Lowering the pass mark will make it even easier for Canada to attract
skilled workers businesses need, while continuing to ensure newcomers
can thrive quickly in their new environment.

I said when IRPA was initially implemented that we would closely
monitor the pass mark and adjust it to better match our needs. This is
what we are now doing.

The Government has consulted widely and regularly since 1996 to build
an immigration system that meets the needs of all involved -- from the
applicants themselves to employers and communities that need skilled
workers and the taxpayers who fund the immigration program in Canada.

Today's proposed changes to the regulations reflect our ongoing
efforts to listen to the viewpoints of all stakeholders and respond in
a way that continues to encourage immigration within the confines of
existing resources and a balanced plan.

Default Re: 67 points

Who in Hell do you think you are? Your posting from somewhere in
India and telling Canadians that we must except low life immigrants
that can't even score 75%. Give me a break. In all reality the pass
mark should be much higher 90%.

If Canadians were not so hung up on only having 1 or 2 children we
would not need Immigrants. The only think that immigrants bring with
them are the rug rats and the ability to live 4-6 in a 1 bedroom apt.,
eating rice and beans mixed with some eggs.
