The immigration system in Canada needs to be reformed for greater control over applicant decision and stricter screening around asylum seekers and criminal background checks.

As part of our promise to bring a steady flow of talented labour product into Canada, the Canadian Nationalist Party will first reintroduce the Immigration Act of 1952 which reinforces the power of the minister of citizenship and immigration with broad discretionary powers over admissibility and deportation.

A period of limited immigration would allow the Canadian Government to reduce its current backlog of deportees. Therefore, the Canadian Nationalist Party will reduce immigration to an annual rate of 20,000 – 100,000 if not pausing immigration altogether. The former scenario, pausing immigration, would save Canada an estimated $30 – $35 billion annually.

Illegal immigration at the border would immediately discontinue. The entire US/Canada border would be declared an official point of entry, thereby respecting the legality of the Safe Third Country Agreement. Those who have entered Canada illegally since November 5th, 2015 would be deported back to their home country.

The Canadian Military must serve as a beacon of national pride and patriotic demonstration.

In an effort to modernize the military, the Canadian Nationalist Party would increase military funding to 3.8% GDP for a period of give years. After this period, we would produce a report on combat ready-ness of the Armed Forces and condition of all equipment, firearms, and vehicles.

The Bank of Canada Act of 1938 must be respected and the responsibilities of managing our country’s central bank must be a public function under the jurisdiction of the Government of Canada.

We must allow the Bank of Canada to offer low-to-no interest loans to public institutions for the growth of the national economy. A sovereign credit monetary policy and full-employment public-works program must be implemented as fiscal policy for strong economic growth.

Additionally, a review of the debt incurred by our public institutions to private institutions must be undertaken. Debt repudiation must be employed in cases of fraud and unwillingness or inability to perform the obligations under contract.

We must withdraw completely from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Reduce the number of seats in the House of Commons. The House of Commons costs ~ $420 million per year.

Introduce proportional representation as the electoral system and limit voter eligibility to those with +1 years of military or civil service.

1. Economy

The Government of Canada must implement economic autarky. This form of economic policy will allow domestic self-sufficiency while remaining open to pursue major international trade. Under this form of protectionist framework for economic development, we must subsidize and protect (through the use of tariffs) key industries that are unique to Canada’s natural resources.

1.1 Bank of Canada

The Bank of Canada must be restored to its purpose as outlined in the Bank Act of 1938. Therefore, the Canadian Nationalist Party will restore the Bank of Canada Act, allowing the Bank of Canada to offer low-to-no interest loans to public institutions. A sovereign credit monetary policy and full-employment public-works program must be implemented as fiscal policy for strong economic growth. Additionally, a review of the debt incurred by our public institutions to private institutions must be undertaken.

  • Revise the Investment Canada Act so that foreign investment is prohibited in Class A Banks.
  • Withdraw ourselves from organizations like the BIS and IMF.
  • Increase the reserve ratios of our banking sector from 0%, prohibiting banks from lending out all of their cash in reserves.
  • Provide tax relief and offer higher interest business savings accounts for investors and businessmen based on percentage of Canadian employees, percentage of wealth in Canadian banks, and the extent to which they engage in with Canadian businesses.
1.2 Pension Plan

Allow employees to opt out of the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) in favour of private pension funds under government regulation.

1.3 Equalization Payments

Restructure inter-provincial equalization payments.

2. Immigration & Citizenship

2.1 Reform Immigration

A period of limited immigration will allow the Canadian government to reduce its current backlog of deportees and ease the burden on our social services due to abnormal levels of immigration.

In a process of immigration reform, and after forming government, the Canadian Nationalist Party will:

  1. Declare the entire US/Canada border an official point of entry, thereby closing the legal loophole of the Safe Third Country Agreement.
  2. Deport border-crossing immigrants who have arrived illegally since November 4th, 2015.
  3. Reinstate the Immigration Act of 1952, giving discretionary powers to the federal cabinet on immigration.
  4. Temporarily pause all immigration.
  5. Raise citizenship standards, deporting those convicted of terrorism.
  6. Limit the Temporary Foreign Workers Program to 100,000 eligible individuals annually.

Canada’s current immigration rate is about 3x more welcoming that the United States on a per capita basis, and one of the highest rates per capita in the world, yet our job growth rate does not match the current rate of immigration. This is exacerbating unemployment levels and correlates with increased crime.

When newcomers to Canada cannot find meaningful employment, it lowers social satisfaction and creates frustration among those who have only recently been introduced to our country.

The Canadian Nationalist Party will reform our currently broken immigration system. We will implement a temporary pause on immigration and reinstate the Immigration Act of 1952.

2.2 Grant Refuge to South African Farmers

The Canadian Government must take an active role in protecting minorities in South Africa and fast-tracking their applications for refugee status.

3. Healthcare

3.1 Water Fluoridation

Public fluoridation of municipal water supply has found to hold no positive correlations on health. Until further research is done, water fluoridation must be discontinued in all Canadian cities.

3.2 Abortion

End public taxpayer funded abortions.

3.3 Euthanasia

Euthanasia and assisted suicide are an unacceptable response to terminal or incurable illness or a chronic conditions.

4. Infrastructure

4.1 Build a Hudson Bay Pipeline

Build a Northern Manitoba Pipeline, opening Canadian oil and natural resource products to foreign export markets. Prioritize the oil and gas industries as our economic growth engine.

5. Education

5.1 University Tuition Rates

Post-secondary institutions are first-and-foremost academic institutions, not commercial institutions. Therefore, a cap will be implemented on semester tuition rates at all post-secondary institutions to protect the youth of our nation from excessive student loan debt.

5.2 Federal Education Program

Introduce a federal education program emphasizing topics on Canadian history, government, and athletics.

6. Government

6.1 Dual-Citizenship

Prohibit public officials from holding dual-citizenship.

6.2 Indian Act

An amendment must be made to the Indian Act which allows aboriginal ownership of all land held in federal Crown trusts.

6.3 Employment Equity Act

The government should never incentivize hiring based on identity, but rather allow employers to hire the most qualified candidates. Currently, the Employment Equity Act encourages businesses to hire citizens who identify as minority, female, or aboriginal. In order to ensure hiring practices are fair for all citizens, it must be repealed.

6.4 Marriage Loans

Citizens who have been both born on the soil and married within the last 5 years will be eligible for a marriage loan. For each common child between these newlywed couples, 20% of the loan will be forgiven. If a couple has 5 common children, the entirety of the loan will be forgiven. The total amount of the loan available will fluctuate on an annual basis depending on a number of factors designed to promote healthy birthrates among the population.

6.5 Anti-Islamaphobia Motion 103

Anti-Islamaphobia motion 103 must be revoked and the right for Canadians to critique any political or religious doctrine must be protected.

6.6 Senate Reform

Reduce the size of and reform the Senate, which currently costs $105 million per year.

7. Cultural

7.1 Multiculturalism

The official Multiculturalism Act of 1988 must be repealed and replaced with legislation allowing the Canadian government to prioritize particular aspects of Canadian culture.

The State should never attempt to be everything for everyone. It should promote particular aspects of the cultural fabric of its society. For those aspects of its society which fail to integrate, it must exclude.

When you read the history books, you will not find a single example where multiculturalism was successful. This is because multiculturalism has never worked and it will never work. If it was working, we wouldn’t need ever-expanding laws and regulations which tell us how to speak, how to act, and how to live.

When Pierre Trudeau first implemented the social experiment of multiculturalism in the 1970s, it was done with the intention of eroding what was at the time a great and proud nation of people. Multiculturalism in Canada, and indeed every country it has been implemented, has failed. Our current Prime Minister is attempting to finish what his “father” started: the destruction of the Canadian identity.

With multiculturalism, the end result is always the same: fragmentation and balkanization of the country.

For those who are skeptical toward the long-term benefits of official multiculturalism, the Canadian Nationalist Party welcomes you.

7.2 Burqa

When rendering and receiving civil service (such as voting in an election), it is customary in the Western World to reveal one’s face. This is important for both identification and communication purposes. Therefore, full-veil face coverings, such as the burqa, will be banned in Canada when interacting within the public sector.

7.3 Marijuana

The use of marijuana should be decriminalized (not legalized nor criminalized) and heavily regulated under federal registration. Law enforcement should not be burdened with victim-less crimes such as marijuana use, yet the Government must protect the youth of the nation from drug addiction and “smoking culture”.

7.4 Pride Parades

The public taxpayer should not be required to finance street-level displays of homosexuality.

7.5 Gay Marriage

The Canadian Nationalist Party supports holding a national referendum on same-sex marriage.

8. Law

8.1 Firearms Regulation

The regulations around firearms in Canada require an overhaul. The Canadian Nationalist Party will begin reforming firearms laws by:

  1. Legalize concealed-carry for citizens possessing a valid Possession & Acquisition License (PAL).
  2. Classify firearms based on the function of the weapon and not appearance.
  3. Permit extended magazines and suppressors for firearms.
  4. Introduce Castle Doctrine & stand-your-ground laws.

The Canadian Nationalist Party stands in opposition to Bill C-71.

Ultimately, law-abiding citizens who have demonstrated proficiency in responsibly handling firearms should enjoy the ability to possess and acquire without being harassed by the government. The Firearms Act must treat the ability to defend oneself as a right, not a privilege, while the ability to possess and acquire a firearm, a privileged.

9. Taxation

9.1 Federal Carbon Tax

The federal carbon tax must be abolished.

9.2 Small Business Tax

Small business taxation will be lowered to 9% in order to encourage entrepreneurship and new job creation.

9.3 Income Tax

Abolish the income tax for single individuals earning less than $25,000 or those married and jointly earning less than $50,000.

9.4 Non-Citizen Property Tax

Introduce a foreign property tax on residential property owned by a non-citizen or dual-citizen.

10. Military

10.1 Military Funding

In order to modernize our military, the Canadian Nationalist Party will increase military funding to 3% GDP for a period of 4 years. After this period, we will assess national defense standards and adjust the level of funding accordingly.

10.2 Veterans

Guarantee injured veterans receive increased funding for pensions.

11. Crime

11.1 Capital Punishment

Capital punishment must be reinstated for the crimes of treason, terrorism, espionage, and pedophilia.
