New languages rules proposed for the coming immigrants
The Canadian immigration officials are now suggesting a set of new rules for the language requirements for the ones who are seeking citizenship in the country.
Recently a new set of changes in existing language requirements for the prospective immigrants have been proposed by the Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenny. As per this new proposal the government is looking forward to assess the proficiency in English and French language of the new prospective immigrants to the country.
According to the proposal recently published in Canada Gazette, those of the adult citizenship aspirant immigrants, will now have to prove their proficiency in the both languages that is in English and French, will have to produce evidence to support it, so that government be assured of what is projected is true.
As the new guidelines proposed the aspirants should now assure with evidence that they met the standards set for the language requirements. They are expected to submit the following documents: Firstly they provide with the certificate of third party test undergone by the applicant. Another document that states that the applicant have completed the learning of either of both the languages at secondary and the post secondary levels. They should also prove that they have got CLB/NCLC 4 in the language training programs which have been funded by the government.
The aspirants are required to submit their proofs and evidences along with their application for citizenship of the country. the authorities have also made it clear if incase their documentation regarding is incomplete or improper they will be legitimate to return their applications and will be resubmitted with proper proofs only.
Proposal Will Help:
According to the government authorities, if the new citizens possess efficient and effective of ability to read and write either of the two languages, it will not only help them to survive successfully in the country by giving them confidence and will also be helpful in maintaining the integrity and cohesiveness of the country’s citizenship program.
As according to the existing plan the CIC preferred using the citizenship knowledge test to check the proficiency of the languages and another criterion they preferred is the interaction of the applicants with the CIC staff during their interview session.
Expected Effect on Immigrants:
It is believed that the most of the applicants those had currently forwarded their application may have the proof regarding the language proficiency and could submit along with the filed application. This change will not appear as a burden for them as it was anticipated before. Rather this change would help them to gain confidence and that they can easily adopt the country’s system without many problems.
