    I think it’s because all refugees are an extreme case especially when one is considered in danger, etc. Whereas all other applicants rather a long term process. Now as you said regular applicants posses skills, experience, and a willingness to strive in what they do the refugees do not need to. Therefore, it may seems to bring there rest of immigrants under a bad umbrella as a poor and an uneducated criminal crowd. Which immigrants are not. Refugees just a mandatory part for Canada to play a vital role in the world activities (I think). In either case, refugees are also subjected to a thorough case by case torture. Rus.

    As a Canadian Citizen for 43 years in Canada, got married, have children and grandchildren
    all living in Canada,my two children are married being productive in this country, my
    older grandchildren going to Ottawa to become a French Teacher, my question is why
    Canada keeps getting refugee, while people with education was having a hard time applying
    going thru the right system, while Canada spending too much money to this refugee some
    of them have hidden criminals record.
    I have a grand daughter, a Nurse, been in S.Arabia and Jordan, now in the Philippines studying French, applying to immigrate in Canada, Immigration is asking her too many doc.
    why the government was still giving her hard time. Is there anything Canadian Immigration
    can do to her to make her case faster. She submitted so many required documents, what
    else she should do. Appreciate your comments.
