Default Further change in immigration laws

Hi. I was in Canada last month and was talking to a British Expat there and he says there will be new laws concerning Permanent resident cards and if you do not have application in by the 31st Dec 2002 you will have to fill in an extra large form... Have you heard anything about this....
I did a check in the CIC site and only found the if you application is submitted prior to 31st Dec 2003 the card will be waiting for you at your port of entry after application is approved and you become landed, or if you are already in Canada on 15th Oct 2002 you need apply for one, but tjhat is all can you enlighten me further

Changes in the immigration law are scheduled for October, when a pan-Canadian conference on immigration will be held in Winnipeg. What the changes will be is difficult to predict, but mainly they will address the government's aim for spreading out the immigrants throughout nordic rural areas and places with low immigration.

No changes are scheduled for October - please stop spreading rumors...

During the conference many views and concepts will be presented and discussed,
but no changes will be made!!!!

Denis Coderre in Vancouver (conference organised by The Laurier Institute) said that a new visa (contract) will be implemented during 2003. It will allow immigrants to work in rural areas for 5 years. After that they will be granted PR. According to canada.com it is expected that details will be presented in Winnipeg

Well yes and no. The PR card requirement is true - all immigrants are now required to have one and existing landed immigrants must apply in a predetermined order to get one. It's like the American ID card - and has been brought in because of the flood of illegal immigrants and family members coming in for holidays and never going home (oh gee what a surprise as if that doesn't happen all over the world!) It is also supposed to cut down on the amount of people with the same surname sharing SIN numbers, because it's photo ID. Details are on the CIC website under "What's new" I believe. It's a credit card size card, which carries a photo and a supposedly tamper proof security feature. Of coures it won't take some bright spark very long to figure out how to duplicate it!

I have no idea about the 5 year thing; my post was purely about the new PR cards. They are just ID - that's all.

As they are planned to be used and limited in validity, they will certainly
also be an enforcement tool.

Some very sketchy info was presented and nothing was agreed upon nor decided.

As I responded earlier - please don't spread rumors...
