Health Risk Mitigation

There are many challenges with regard to effective management of health issues related to immigration. To respond to some of these challenges, CIC will continue to screen applicants for medical conditions that are likely to be a danger to public health or public safety, or be expected to cause excessive demand on health and social services. CIC will also review some of its policies on infectious diseases to look for innovative ways of reducing the risk of transmission and to provide better access to treatment for high-risk situations. CIC will also continue to work on the definition of the term "Danger to Public Health."

In cooperation with its international partners, CIC will work on enhancing the reliability of the immigration medical examination process by implementing new quality assurance tools; it will also collaborate on developing strategies to improve the reliability of the tuberculosis diagnostic and treatment services available through a network of service providers around the world. CIC will continue to strengthen its relationships with the Public Health Agency of Canada and provincial and territorial public health authorities to manage health. As well, CIC will continue reporting to Canadian provincial and territorial public health authorities on admissible applicants with inactive pulmonary tuberculosis (IPT), complex IPT or other complex non-infectious tuberculosis for medical management.


CIC will continue to support the work of Metropolis, [note 30] an international network for comparative research and public policy development on migration, diversity and integration in cities in Canada and around the world. In 2010–2011, Metropolis will organize international and national conferences as well as highly focused, policy-relevant events, presentations and seminars that will bring together policy makers, academics and non-governmental sector participants to discuss emerging issues in the fields of immigration and diversity.

CIC Research Activities

Objective and timely research is a prerequisite to making informed decisions for policy action and program development. CIC will continue to conduct strategic research in areas such as labour market responsiveness and economic indicators, language acquisition and literacy, citizenship and social integration, refugee sponsorship relationships, and linkages across programs and immigration streams. With the recent transfer of the Multiculturalism Portfolio to CIC, the Department will integrate the program's research needs into the CIC research plan.

Gender-based Analysis at CIC

Under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, CIC is accountable to Parliament for conducting gender-based analysis on the impact of the Act and its regulations. A range of gender-based analysis initiatives are planned for 2010–2011, including a review of the Strategic Framework for Gender-Based Analysis (2005–2010), which will identify new directions for incorporating gender-based analysis within CIC's legislative, policy and operational activities. In cooperation with the Metropolis Project, CIC will continue to monitor, support and encourage the dissemination of gender-based research, including the collection and analysis of gender-disaggregated data. Evaluations conducted by CIC will provide findings for both genders in areas such as client needs, program participation rates and program outcomes.

Gender-based analysis will also be conducted to ensure that gender considerations are taken into account in the development of new policy, program and legislative frameworks and tools. Such analysis will help remove integration barriers for immigrants and refugees, and it will support the participation of all Canadians in fostering an integrated society. In addition, outcomes following the implementation of the first set of Ministerial Instructions on federal skilled workers will be analysed on a gender-disaggregated basis. For more information on CIC's plans and activities with respect to gender-based analysis, consult the Annual Report to Parliament on Immigration 2009. [note 31]
