Liberals released their immigration platform

On September 30, 2019, the Liberal Party of Canada published its new election platform. In the immigration sphere, Liberals announced several important points. Grits promise to increase immigration levels, focusing on highly skilled workers. They also announced the plan to make the Atlantic Immigration Pilot (AIPP) permanent program and increase the program's quota to 5,000 annually. In addition, Liberals want to launch the Municipal Nominee Program (MNP) that will function similarly to the Provincial Nominee Programs, allowing local communities, chambers of commerce, and local labour councils to directly sponsor permanent immigrants. The MNP will also be allocated 5,000 spots a year. Finally, if elected, the Grits promise to make applications for Canadian citizenship free. #Election, #immigration_policy, #AIPP, #MNP, #citizenship, #Liberals
