Immigration

I. The Maverick Party will advocate for more control over immigration to western provinces. Immigration must be based on the economic needs and opportunities of the provinces and fulfill the employment skills that are needed.

II. The Maverick Party supports and welcomes genuine refugees.

III. The Maverick Party remains convinced that immigration has been a positive source of economic growth, cultural diversity, and social renewal.

IV. The Maverick Party believes the current refugee policy is unsustainable, costly, and it is being consistently abused by refugees illegally entering at our borders. The statutory responsibility of Canada’s government is to first help those in need among our own population, and then to give priority to genuine refugees in need. Strong legislation and enforcement are required.
