Canada Family Reunification
With the launch of new Express Entry system for very skilled immigrants on 1 January 2015, a group is pressing for Express Entry system in support of family reunification to make sure that children will be reunified with their parents within six months.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) will process applications for overseas dependent children under the family immigration stream within 17 months and for refugee family members in not more than 34 months, reported by the Canadian Council for Refugees in a press release.

The proposed Express Entry family reunification program is outlined on the basis of Express Entry economic program that will be launched by the CIC very soon. Under the new system, immigrants with a Canadian job offer and who possess set of skills will have their applications processed by CIC within six months.

The president of the council, Loly Rico said that children should be reunified with their parents at the earliest as overseas nationals are brought to Canada to address the skill shortages. Apparently, its slow immigration processing will separate the families for at least two years, which is extremely undesirable, he added.

He mentioned that 2014 is the 25th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, as per which Canada ought to deal with applications of family reunification in a more effective, positive and expeditious way.
