Video changes to host in the studio with TV screens in the background with various skilled workers.
Announcer: “... but there won't be enough Canadians entering the labour force to replace the ones who are retiring. Without immigration, the size of our workforce will shrink. In other words, within the next five years all of our labour force growth will come from immigration”.
The video shot changes to newcomers sitting at a Citizenship ceremony. A man leans into his son and smiles.
Announcer: “All these considerations add up to a number, or rather to a range of numbers on how many immigrants we will accept each year”.

Announcer: “They include provincial nominees; people nominated by either provinces or territories to meet their specific economic and labour market needs.

Announcer: “Ours is one of the most generous in the world”.

The shot changes to the host, on camera, in studio with TV screens in the background.
Announcer: “As I said, Canada selects immigrants based on objective criteria, what they can contribute to the economy, whether they have family members here, or whether they are refugees fleeing torture and persecution.

Announcer: “As you can see, most immigrants to Canada today come from China, India and the Philippians”.
The graphic zooms in to a close up of a map of Canada as it is rapidly populated by white and green graphical figures of people. It then cuts to a shot of many people walking the streets of Chinatown.
Announcer: “Together, immigrants from those three countries make up almost a third of our overall intake of immigrants. That's a big changes from the 1980s and early 90s, when Canada accepted far more economic immigrants from Hong Kong, then from Mainland China, and far fewer from India and the Philippians”.
Video changes to a black and grey map of the world again as certain regions of it are being rapidly populated by white graphical people figures. This is repeated a few times and zooms into Canada as the figures populate the graphic.
Announcer: “Overtime, if a region or country has a growing number of people who want to immigrate to Canada and a large number of these people meet our selection criteria, then we will accept a large proportion of immigrants from those regions and countries. We adjust accordingly. Improvements to our program can also have an effect on where immigrants come from”.
The video cuts to the hostess in the studio as the TV screen in the background features the Immigration Act of 2002.
Announcer: “For instance, when parliament adopted a new immigration act in 2002 to put more emphasis on English or French language abilities for the selection of economic immigrants, there was a decline in the number of immigrants from China and an increase in immigrants from European countries and French speaking North Africa”.

Announcer: “This will increase the relative proportion of immigrants Canada will welcome from countries that produce a large number of refugees”.

Announcer: “In the past, this has included Burma, Iraq, Iran and Vietnam”.
A shot of an airplane flies over towards a landing strip.

The video cuts to a crowded airport with a man in line at Canadian customs as the agent inspects his passport.
Announcer: “Nor does it include the temporary foreign workers and students who come to Canada to fill short term labour market needs or to study”.

The shot cuts back to the hostess in the studio with TV screen in the background.
Announcer: “Immigrants have risked their lives to defend Canada, strengthen our economy, enrich our culture and uphold freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law. In Canada, if you work hard and play by the rules, you'll succeed. That's why Canada is a great country to live in. Immigrants are helping to keep it that way”.
