Visa applications from Chinese tourists down since Huawei’s chief financial officer arrested
The number of applications for Chinese visitor visas in January and February of this year was 19,668 and 16,721, respectively, well below the numbers from one year earlier, when 36,406 and 23,108 applications were recorded, according to statistics collected by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. Ms. Meng, Huawei’s chief financial officer, was arrested on Dec. 1 at Vancouver International Airport, sparking one of the worst crises in Canada-China relations in decades.
Majority of Canadians encourage the immigration of skilled workers over refugees
A survey conducted by Public Square Research and Maru Blue shows that Canadians’ views are divided over immigration. The poll shows that 76% of people agreed that Canada should do more to encourage skilled labourers to immigrate to the country, while 57% said Canada should not accept more refugees. Experts say the findings reflect continuing confusion over the legitimacy of migrants crossing the Canadian border outside official ports of entry, a problem they say has been exacerbated by increased media attention. Last year alone, 55,030 people took asylum in Canada and more than 300,000 people came as permanent residents.
