Immigration Reforms in Canada’s Economic Action Plan 2013 (IECBC)
Canadas Economic Action Plan 2013 announced this afternoon outlines the Governments intention to enhance Canadas immigration system with a focus on fuelling economic growth and job creation. The Action Plan confirms the Governments intention to improve the foreign credential recognition process and create a new Expression of Interest immigration management system which will allow for Canadian employers, provinces and territories to select skilled immigrants from a pool of applicants who best meet Canadas economic needs. In the coming year, the Government will also reform the Federal Skilled Worker Program, test new approaches to attracting immigrant investors through a new Start-Up Visa and strengthen Canadas position as a country of choice to study and conduct research.

Cost of coming to Canada, and becoming a Canadian citizen, likely to rise (Maclean’s)
The cost of coming to Canada and becoming a Canadian citizen is set to rise. Thursdays federal budget suggests the government is eyeing fee hikes to cover the ballooning cost of processing hundreds of thousands of visa and citizenship applications each year. The Conservative government is seeking to shift more of those costs onto the businesses who want to bring in temporary foreign workers, as well as to those applying for citizenship.

Cost of becoming Canadian citizen could double (Arthur Weinreb, Digital Journal)
As part of the federal budget tabled yesterday, fees for applying to become a Canadian citizen and the cost of obtaining temporary visas for students, workers and visitors will be “modernized” to cover more of the processing costs. The intention of the government to have those who are applying for Canadian citizenship as well as companies who wish to hire temporary foreign workers cover more of the cost of processing those documents was announced in yesterday’s budget.

Barbie’s Warped Ethnic Dolls at Schema : more than ethnic (Shima Ghailan, Schema Magazine)
Barbie decided to go one step further by creating ethnically diverse Barbies so we’ve got India Barbie, Mexico Barbie, Chile Barbie, Brazil, Holland, etc. Now mind you, each Barbie has the same body structure, facial dimensions of their typical white Barbie, but of course, they’ve tinted their skin colours to match said ethnicity. But wait, how else do they ethnically distinguish the dolls from one another? Brace yourself, it’s about to get ugly.

Home Again: A very Canadian take on life and deportation (Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail)
At the beginning of Home Again, director David (Sudz) Sutherland tells us that every year 3,000 immigrants are deported back to Jamaica from countries such as Canada, the United States, Britain and Australia. Often, they are long-established residents convicted of minor crimes who have had little connection with their putative homeland since childhood. Nothing is done to resettle them in Jamaica, where they are deeply distrusted and represent a significant social burden. Surprising then, given the scale of the problem, that three of those 3,000 would all converge in the same shoot-out in Trenchtown.

The story behind Ezra Levant’s 11th hour ‘apology’ for Roma rant (Karl Nerenberg, rabble)
Apologies are coming fast and furious from Ezra Levant and Sun News Network. Just this week, there have been apologies for comments made about the publication Vancouver Observer and for a rant directed against the Roma people. Our parliamentary reporter Karl Nerenberg, who has been closely following the story of Roma refugees in Canada, has uncovered information about just how close Levant actually came to facing prosecution for hate crimes over his comments about the Roma. The office of the Attorney General of Ontario was contacted for comment on this story, but did not reply by deadline.

Raiding unauthorized migrants: Two types of humans for Canadian TV (Raymond Hyma, Straight.com)
Following several weeks of Senate scandals in Ottawa, Vancouver got its own fair share of federal political controversy in the media last week after a reality TV raid on unauthorized migrant workers led by the Canada Border Services Agency was carried out at construction sites. An outcry of protest ensued across the country with many people aghast over a little-known TV show that would exploit the lives of vulnerable people for ratings. CBSAs response has been limited, simply saying that it hopes to educate Canadians about the efforts of its border guard agents through its involvement in such a program. It is now known that each episode of the show is vetted by the agency and that it went for approval right up to the public safety minister himself. CBSA has reiterated that it considers the TV program a documentary in contrast to critics who claim it is a reality television series. That certainly raises a debate in itself and, even putting semantics aside, it will be up to the viewer to decide in what genre to fit this television series.

Privacy watchdog receives complaint over reality TV immigration raids (CTV)
When found to be lacking the proper documents to work in Canada, the complaint filed by the B.C. Civil Liberties Association said Mata Duran and several others were taken into custody at a downtown immigration detention facility — the video camera trained on them the entire time. “When he asked why there was a camera present, the officer told him ‘not to worry, it’s for a reality TV show,”‘ said the complaint. Mata Duran was processed within the next hour, along with a number of others who had been rounded up in the raid. The men were asked to sign “a piece of paper” and told the footage was for a new series called “Border Services” airing on Global TV and National Geographic. “Confused and afraid about what would happen to him, Mr. Mata Duran signed the consent form without reading it,” said the complaint.

Kent Stewart Says Immigrants Need More Safety Programs In Canada (Seema Dhawan, Huffington Post)
A coroner in Saskatchewan wants more water safety programs to target new Canadians after an immigrant man drowned. Muhammad Naqash Ali drowned at an aquatic centre in Saskatoon last June. The coroner has ruled his death accidental, noting that the 27-year-old Ali was an inexperienced swimmer. Ali moved to Canada from Pakistan in May 2011 and lived in Ontario before moving to Saskatoon in January 2012.

Report into drowning recommends enhanced water safety programs for immigrants (Star Phoenix)
Water safety programs for new Canadians are needed to help prevent drownings such as the death of a Pakistani immigrant at a Saskatoon pool last summer, says a provincial coroners report. Muhammad Naqash Ali, 27, died on June 8, 2012, after he was found unconscious at the bottom of a pool at the Harry Bailey Aquatic Centre. This tragic death highlights the need for water safety programs targeting new Canadians at the local, provincial and national level, provincial coroner Myrna Briggs wrote in her report.

America Should Give Immigrants a ‘Canadian’ Welcome (Huffington Post)
There are some things we’d like to change about ourselves, but they can’t be changed. We can dye our hair, but it doesn’t change our original hair colour. We can wear contact lenses to change the appearance of our eyes, but this is merely cosmetic. Some of us may even wish that they had been born somewhere else, dreaming of the life that could have been — if only. I wasn’t born in Canada, but from early on in my life, I was determined to repair Mother Nature’s “mishap.” Spending my early and adolescent years in various places in Europe, as well as in Britain, and visiting Canada for schooling and pleasure as often as I could, I eventually took the plunge, filed my paperwork, and made Canada my home.

Jason Kenney supports bill stripping citizenship for dual nationals linked to terrorism (Andrea Hill, Canada.com)
Immigration Minister Jason Kenney appeared before committee Thursday to voice his support for a private members bill that proposes to strip Canadian citizenship from dual nationals who commit acts of war against Canada and said he would like the bill broadened to also apply to dual citizens committing acts of terrorism and high treason. If a citizen is convicted of serious terrorist offences, if they take up arms against Canada or if they are convicted of high treason, that individual has severed the bonds of loyalty which is the basis of their citizenship, Kenney said. Bill sponsor Conservative MP Devinder Shory has said he is open to amendments that keep with the spirit of the bill and said the ministers suggestions were attractive.

Ottawa woman planning to visit son hiding in Syria (CBC)
Al-Horani and another son of hers, a minor at the time, immigrated to Canada five years ago. Zeitouni, who was then in university, was told he couldn’t come because he was no longer dependent on his mother. Al-Horani’s older daughter came to Canada on a visitor’s visa when politics started deteriorating in Syria, and was granted refugee status. Zeitouni, now 27 years old, started applying for a visitor’s visa when the civil war started. In a rejection document, Citizenship and Immigration Canada said Zeitouni’s family connections or past travel history indicated he was likely to overstay his welcome. The document did not go into more detail. “We will be responsible for him. He will stay with us, and get a work permit and work. He’s educated. His wife also, she’s an accountant. They won’t be a burden to the country, so why not help me?” Al-Horani said.

Flaherty says jobs grant will enable employers to fill their own skills gaps (Maclean’s)
Finance Minister Jim Flaherty wants to give employers a little more power to fill their own skills gaps, and hes hoping renegotiated transfers to the provinces will do the trick. Flaherty proposed a new Canada Job Grant that he said will transform the way we provide skills training to ensure we connect Canadians with available jobs. The government will fund the grant, which makes up the lions share of provincial transfers for skills training, to the tune of $300 million a year by 201718. Provinces and employers will kick in matching funds.

The voice of the dissent (Dania Suleman, CCLA)
I came across this article yesterday and thought I would share it along. The author makes a point that not only are dissenting voices in Canada are under surveillance, but that there is also a clear alignment between our government and corporations which views economic interests as national interests: In Canada, gone are the days of being able to oppose ones government without the fear of being silenced. Lawful demonstrations during the G-20 summit in 2010 resulted in a rash of arrests, as well as unlawful kettling of innocent citizens participating in the event. The Canadian International Development Agency failed to renew development contracts for NGOs that disagreed with particular policies. The Canada Revenue Agency will remove an organizations status as a charity if it deems its work to be political.

Point of View: Why not reciprocal instead of reverse mentoring? (Mary-Frances Winters, The Inclusion Solution)
Studies have shown that mentoring can be very effective in enhancing career development for people of color and women. Well-designed mentoring programs can help underrepresented talent get noticed by senior leaders who often become advocates for their assigned protégé. Historically, the underlying assumption of most traditional mentoring programs was that the accomplished leader would coach the lower level employee on how to advance in the organization. The advice, most generally, was based the mentors own experience. In other words, Here is how I did it and I am sure this will work for you too. Now we recognize that how a white male may have advanced, may not be the same strategies that a woman or person of color could use effectively, depending on the organizational culture. For example, a woman who is aggressive might be perceived as too pushy whereas a white man with the same traits is viewed as a go-getter. An African American male who is aggressive might be perceived as threatening. To ameliorate some of these pitfalls, some organizations are now advocating reverse mentoring where the mentee helps the mentor understand his/her perspective in an effort to enhance the cultural competence of the mentor.

From Inclusion to Mutualism for Sustainability (Mary-Frances Winters, The Inclusion Solution)
As one example from the D&I space, reverse mentoring has become popular (See Point of View: Why not reciprocal instead of reverse mentoring?). I think that reverse mentoring still fosters us and them thinking. I advocate for reciprocal mentoring that inherently positions the relationship as that of equals who benefit from each other. If our brains were wired to be mutualistic we would eliminate concepts like sink or swim, assimilation, survival of the fittest, crabs in the barrel and replace them with ideas like synergy, interdependence, flow and win-win.

SOCIAL INNOVATION / NONPROFITS

Social innovation: a blend of elements and intention (Geraldine Cahill, Communications Manager, Social Innovation Generation (SiG), Maytree)
When Social Innovation Generation (SiG) launched in 2006, the global conversation about social innovation was relatively small. By 2013, its grown considerably. There are now offices of social innovation in national governments, centres for social innovation across the globe, journals, blogs, regular newspaper columns and dedicated academic programs. The most encouraging aspect of this growth in social innovation activity is that millions of people around the world are dedicating time and energy to solving complex social and environmental challenges.
