Marc Miller is new Immigration Minister of Canada
On July 26, 2023, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made significant changes to his cabinet. Marc Miller is now the new Immigration Minister of Canada, a Member of Parliament from Quebec, and former Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations.
Sean Fraser, the previous Immigration Minister, is now Minister of Housing, Infrastructure, and Communities. Cabinet shuffles are common in Canadian politics, occurring every two years to replace poor-performing ministers, reward good work, and refresh policies and public communications. The last shuffle occurred in October 2021, after the federal election, when Fraser was appointed as the previous Immigration Minister and head of the Department of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
About the new Immigration Minister of Canada
Prior to entering politics, Minister Miller worked as a practicing lawyer with a focus on international and commercial law and a specialty in mergers and acquisitions. According to the government’s website, he also served as an infantry soldier in the Canadian Armed Forces.
A statement by Minister Miller in the House of Commons in 2017 was entirely delivered in Mohawk, an Indigenous language that had never before been used in the Canadian parliament since Confederation. Miller has pushed for more federal funding for the Canada Child Benefit, public transportation, and affordable housing.
The welcoming immigration policy of Canada
Canada is considered to be welcoming to immigrants. Every year, it welcomes more than 400,000 new permanent residents. Former Immigration Minister Sean Fraser announced and put into effect a number of changes in the last few years to facilitate immigrants’ entry into Canada. It is anticipated that newly appointed Minister Miller will continue the legacy’s good work in the service of Canadians and potential immigrants.
Minister Miller is well-positioned to provide a new perspective to the vital position given her remarkable history in public service and her strong commitment to promoting diversity and tolerance. Canada looks to the new minister to lead policies that hasten a quick and effective immigration process in light of the recent spike in immigration applications.
