2019-10-02 – A Municipal Nominee Program and abolishing the citizenship application fee will be cornerstones of the Liberal Party's immigration policy if they win the upcoming October 21 general election.

The party headed by current Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will empower local communities across Canada to directly sponsor new immigrants for Canadian permanent residence.

"This program will allow local communities, chambers of commerce, and local labour councils to directly sponsor permanent immigrants," states the Liberal Party platform, released this week.

Trudeau's Liberals also plan to make the successful Atlantic Immigration Pilot permanent, with both the AIP and the new Municipal Nominee Program allocated a minimum of 5,000 spaces per year.

The party also promises to make it free for permanent residents to apply for citizenship – a process currently costing an applicant $630.
