In October 2008, responsibility for the Multiculturalism Program, the Historical Recognition Programs, and Canada’s Action Plan Against Racism was transferred to CIC. [note 55] With the addition of responsibility for administration of the Canadian Multiculturalism Act, CIC’s mandate now includes long-term as well as shortterm integration issues for both new and established Canadians. Performance information for 2008–2009 is reported in the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Departmental Performance Report. [note 56]
The movement of foreign nationals into Canada presents potential risks for infectious diseases and an excessive burden on the Canadian health-care system. CIC continued to strengthen its relationships to manage health risks with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), provincial and territorial health authorities, and international partners. Some of the key accomplishments for 2008–2009 included signing a Memorandum of Understanding with PHAC to better articulate our cooperation regarding immigration health policy, and publishing and distributing a Designated Medical Practitioner Handbook which will enhance the standardization of medical examination processes and the management of the more than 1000 designated medical practitioners who conduct over 500,000 immigration medical examinations in Canada and around the world each year.
CIC continued to support the work of Metropolis, an international network for comparative research and public policy development on migration, diversity, and integration in cities in Canada and around the world. For more information on the Metropolis Project and its activities, please consult http://metropolis.net/.
Under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, CIC is accountable to Parliament for conducting a genderbased analysis on the impact of the Act and its regulations. For more information on the Department’s activities with respect to gender-based analysis, consult the Annual Report to Parliament on Immigration 2008. [note 57]
