Ottawa is preparing a “large program” to regularize some of the hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who live and work illegally in the country, Marc Miller, the Minister of Immigration, said on Thursday.

In an interview with the English-language daily Globe and Mail, the latter said he planned to present a plan in the spring.

The debate on the regularization of people who are here and who, in my opinion, should be Canadian, is not unanimous in the country […] We need to have a greater discussion about this as a country .

A quote from Marc Miller, Minister of Immigration

According to the minister, 300,000 to 600,000 people live in irregular in Canada often for years and risk deportation at any time.

The new program would also include people who entered the country legally, as temporary workers or international students, and stayed here after their visas expired, according to the Globe and Mail.

In recent months, the government has increased its meetings with associations defending undocumented immigrants and social organizations to set up this plan of regularization, which would be the largest in the country's history.

Canada, which has 40 million inhabitants, has experienced record population growth in 2022 due to an influx of immigrants. Ottawa already plans to welcome 500,000 immigrants per year by 2025.
