Mr. Tremblay:

Mr. Chairman, I am leaving for Hong Kong tomorrow morning, and the purpose of my trip is to check on the administrative problems of immigration services. When I come back, I will be glad to report on my mission.

Mr. Tremblay:

Mr. Chairman, in many countries behind the iron curtain, we do not have the required facilities to have the would-be immigrants undergo the necessary examinations.

I hope to be able to get in touch, in the near future, with the authorities in countries behind the iron curtain so as to find out to what extent such examinations could be made easy for those relatives of Canadians who live in Poland, in Czechoslovakia, etc. and who wish to immigrate to this country.

As regards the second point, that is people born in countries behind the iron curtain and living now in other European countries, and who wish to settle in Canada, regulations specify, as hon. members know, that these people must live two years in the same country to be entitled to undergo examinations that would permit them to come to Canada.

So far, latitude was allowed the minister to permit the admission of certain immigrants who were undergoing an examination in a Canadian office here. I can assure you that up to now, I have been very very broadminded in carrying out the rules, in view of the discretion that I was allowed, and chiefly on account of the fact that in some instances it was impossible for the immigrants to go back to their country and therefore, I had to have them undergo the examination in this country.

Mr. Tremblay:

Mr. Chairman, the suggestion made by the hon. member for Skeena

(Mr. Howard) to revise the agreements is an excellent one, because it so happens that there is, in the case of India, an agreement between our government and that of India.

As for the possibility of bringing in immigrants from a country such as India, over an annual period, I am of the opinion that existing agreements with other countries ought to be revised, for it is part of our over-all policy to examine the possibility of allowing immigration from those countries to be increased. That applies not only to European countries, but also to those of the Middle East, Asia and India.
