Jinny Jogindera Sims, an MP from federal electoral district of British Columbia province of Canada said on Tuesday she was making efforts to address the immigration issues being faced by foreigners in Canada.
Jinny, who was born in Pabwa village near Nurmahal in Punjab, paid obeisance at Golden Temple on Tuesday. She had moved to United Kingdom when she was 10, before moving to Canada. She went on to work as teacher before being elected as a New Democratic Party MP in 2011.
"There is a need to fine tune the immigration policy of Canada to address issues like immigration, family unification and refusals of visas. It also has to be ensured that cheap temporary foreign workforce was not allowed to eat into the jobs of the Canadians," she said.
Jinny added: "The workforce arranged at cheaper labour rates was open to abuse. Not only in India, unscrupulous agents in Canada were also aggravating the problem. However, not every employer was a fraudster... I have received a lot of calls from Amritsar following Canadian government's decision to ask skilled workers awaiting immigration to apply afresh. I am looking into the matter and will do the needful."
