STOP THE DEPORTATIONS OF HARD WORKING FAMILIES IN CANADA sign now

We, the undersigned, wish to express deep concern with the Canadian Governments hasty decision to deport thousands of hard working individuals and families from our country.

We believe that pursuing the current strategy of strict enforcement of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act not only violates Canadas legacy and its values, it is seriously detrimental to Canada's economy and future prosperity.

FACT: Canada has a serious labour shortage in construction, trades and manual labour that these hard working families are filling.

FACT: These sectors are ignored by Immigration Canada there are no legal channels to apply for this work and no legal way to apply for many of the jobs that need to be filled in our labour force.

FACT: Canadas population is ageing & shrinking - we need to ramp up immigration by as least 100,000 people annually.

We call on the Canadian government to take the following steps to address this situation:

1. introduce an immediate moratorium on further deportations.

2. Establish a worker permit system, whereby any family that has been working for 2 years or more receives a two-year work permit. At the end of the two years, given a solid track record and no criminal record, invite the familiy to apply for landed statu s.

3. Fix Canadas immigration point system so that it reflects the full range of labour force needs in Canada.
