DEPARTMENT OF CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION

IMMIGRATION AND REFUGEE PROTECTION ACT

Notice requesting comments on a proposal to introduce a conditional permanent residence period of two years or more for sponsored spouses and partners in a relationship of two years or less with their sponsors

Following public town hall meetings and online consultations on marriages of convenience held in fall 2010, notice is hereby given that Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is soliciting written comments from all interested parties on a proposal to amend the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations to introduce a specified period of conditional permanent residence for spouses and partners sponsored as members of the family class or spouse or common-law partner in Canada class under subsection 13(1) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA). This proposed measure would apply to spouses and partners who have been in a relationship with their sponsor for two years or less at the time of the sponsorship application. The period of conditional status under consideration could be two years, or longer, from the time that the sponsored spouse or partner becomes a permanent resident in Canada.

The objective of the proposed conditional permanent residence period would be to deter marriages of convenience while maintaining the spirit of the family reunification program by continuing to facilitate the reunification of genuine spouses and partners and their dependents. Introduction of the proposed measure by way of regulation would serve to further strengthen the integrity of Canada’s immigration system and send a message that Canada is taking a strong stance against marriage fraud, and immigration fraud in general. A conditional period of two years or more would also help to bring Canada’s policies to deter marriage fraud into line with those of other countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia, all of which already employ a form of two-year conditional status for those in new relationships.

Background

One of the objectives of IRPA is to facilitate family reunification. IRPA allows Canadian citizens or permanent residents to sponsor close family members for immigration to Canada, including spouses, partners and dependent children.

While the majority of spouses and partners are believed to be in legitimate relationships, the spousal sponsorship process is open to abuse when individuals enter into non bona fide relationships in order to facilitate entry into Canada. In some cases, both parties may be aware that the relationship is for immigration purposes, while in others, the sponsor believes the relationship to be genuine, while the sponsored spouse or partner intends on leaving their sponsor shortly after gaining permanent residence status in Canada, thus victimizing the sponsor.

While firm figures on the extent of marriage fraud are not available, we know that about 46 300 immigration applications for spouses and partners were processed in 2010 (39 800 from abroad and 6 500 from Canada). Of these, about 16% were refused for various reasons — many on the basis of evidence that the relationship was not bona fide, while others were refused for reasons including criminality, security and medical issues.

While entering into a marriage primarily for immigration purposes is prohibited under the Regulations, it is often a challenge to identify and substantiate these kinds of relationships. In fall 2010, amendments to strengthen the Regulations barring marriages of convenience were brought into force. Additional measures are still needed, however, to effectively deter individuals who might otherwise use a marriage of convenience to circumvent our immigration laws, and to protect the integrity of our immigration system.

There is increased public concern about abuse of Canada’s family immigration program through marriages of convenience, and the issue has received considerable media attention. In order to gauge the seriousness of the marriage fraud challenge, in the fall of 2010, the Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism held town hall meetings focused on the issue. Citizenship and Immigration Canada also held online consultations on marriages of convenience in the fall of 2010 in order to gather public and stakeholder views.

Respondents to the online consultation expressed considerable concern about marriages of convenience. Most considered the issue to be a threat to the integrity of Canada’s immigration system. There was strong support for measures and actions by the Government of Canada to address marriage fraud, including broad support for a sponsorship bar to prevent recently sponsored spouses and partners from sponsoring a new spouse or partner within a specified timeframe, and the introduction of a conditional measure.

Along with this Notice of Intent seeking input on a proposal for the introduction of a conditional permanent residence measure, a specific amendment to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations to introduce a sponsorship bar to prevent sponsored partners and spouses from sponsoring a new spouse or partner for five years is also being proposed.

Description

Citizenship and Immigration Canada proposes to introduce amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations specifying that, under the family class or the spouse and common-law in Canada class, a spouse or a common-law or conjugal partner who is in a relationship of two years or less with their sponsor at the time of sponsorship application would be subject to a period of conditional permanent residence. The condition would require that the sponsored spouse or partner remain in a bona fide relationship with their sponsor for a period of two years or more following receipt of their permanent residence status in Canada. Only cases targeted for fraud would be reviewed during the conditional period. Permanent residence could be revoked (leading to initiation of removal) if the condition of remaining in a bona fide relationship was not met. For all other cases, the condition would be automatically lifted after the specified conditional period had elapsed. Beyond the requirement to satisfy the condition, the conditional permanent residence would not differ from permanent residence.

Given concerns about the vulnerability of spouses and partners in abusive relationships, a process for allowing bona fide spouses and partners in such situations to come forward without facing enforcement action would be developed if a conditional permanent residence period were introduced.

Comments

Any person (including immigration lawyers, stakeholders, provincial/territorial/municipal governments, interested groups, general public) may, within 30 days of this notice, provide their comments on this Notice of Intent, in writing, to the person named below at the address provided.

Comments would be appreciated on the proposed introduction of a conditional permanent residence period of two years or more for spouses and partners sponsored as part of the family class or spouse or common-law partner in Canada class category who are in a relationship of two years or less with their sponsor at the time of sponsorship application.

Questions and requests for additional information, as well as comments regarding this Notice of Intent, may be directed to Justine Akman, Director, Social Policy and Programs, Citizenship and Immigration Canada, 365 Laurier Avenue W, 8th Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 1L1, 613-941-9022 (telephone), 613-941-9014 (fax), justine.akman@cic.gc.ca (email).

DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH

FOOD AND DRUGS ACT

Notice of Intent — Food and Drug Regulations — Project No. 1431 Schedule F

The purpose of this Notice of Intent (NOI) is to provide an opportunity to comment on the revised proposal to amend Part I of Schedule F to the Food and Drug Regulations to add quinine, its salts and derivatives except in oral dosage form that provides 50 mg or less of quinine base per dosage unit or per daily dose. That means a prescription would be required for products for oral use containing more than 50 mg of quinine per dosage unit or per daily dose. A prescription would also be required for products containing quinine at any strength for any route of administration other than oral. Products for oral use containing 50 mg or less of quinine per dosage unit or per daily dose would be regulated under the Natural Health Products Regulations and would not require a prescription.

Sections C.01.041 to C.01.049 of the Food and Drug Regulations control the sale of medicinal ingredients that are listed in Schedule F. Part I of Schedule F lists medicinal ingredients that require a prescription for human use and for veterinary use. Part II of Schedule F lists medicinal ingredients that require a prescription for human use, but do not require a prescription for veterinary use if so labelled or if in a form unsuitable for human use.

Health Canada has conducted a scientific review of quinine against a set of established and publicly available factors for listing drugs in Schedule F. These factors include, but are not limited to, toxicity, pharmacological properties and therapeutic uses of the medicinal ingredients.

Based on this assessment, Health Canada is recommending the addition to Schedule F of quinine, its salts and derivatives except in oral dosage form that provides 50 mg or less of quinine base per dosage unit or per daily dose. This would result in affected products being regulated as prescription drug products under the Food and Drug Regulations. Since quinine meets the definition of a natural health product, products sold that contain an oral dosage form of 50 mg or less per unit dose or per daily dose would continue to be regulated under the Natural Health Products Regulations.

Description

Quinine is a medicinal ingredient that was originally made from the bark of several species of the cinchona tree and was used for centuries as the primary treatment for malaria. The use of quinine as a malaria treatment declined over the years as new synthetic derivatives of the drug such as chloroquine and mefloquine were developed and used. However, with increasingly drug-resistant strains of malaria appearing, there has been renewed interest in the use of quinine to treat malaria. Quinine is now being used in combination with other drugs such as antibiotics to treat non-severe malaria infections caused by specific organisms that are resistant to other anti-malarial drugs.

A review of the available scientific literature on quinine indicates that the use of quinine to treat malaria requires individualized instructions and/or direct practitioner supervision. There is a narrow margin of safety between the therapeutic and toxic doses of quinine, especially in populations such as seniors, children, pregnant women or nursing mothers. There are potential or known undesirable or severe side effects at normal therapeutic dosage levels that would need to be managed by a practitioner. As a result of this assessment, Health Canada is recommending that quinine, its salts and derivatives except in oral dosage form that provides 50 mg or less of quinine base per dosage unit or per daily dose be added to Schedule F and be regulated as a prescription status medicinal ingredient under the Food and Drug Regulations.

Alternatives

The following are alternative options to adding quinine to Schedule F as proposed:

(1) Do not list quinine in Schedule F.

This option is not considered to be appropriate. After measuring quinine against the factors for listing drugs in Schedule F, Health Canada is recommending that prescription status would be appropriate for quinine, its salts and derivatives except in oral dosage form that provides 50 mg or less of quinine base per dosage unit or per daily dose.

(2) List quinine in Schedule F without any qualifications, that is, without exemptions.

The addition of quinine to Schedule F without any exemptions was proposed in the two previous consultations. However, comments received in response to the proposal led to a reassessment of information regarding quinine. Further review of the toxicity, pharmacologic properties, and therapeutic applications of quinine has resulted in the recommendation that exemption of oral dosage forms that provide 50 mg or less of quinine base per dosage unit or per daily dose from Schedule F status is appropriate.

Benefits and costs

The amendment would have an impact on the following sectors:

  • Public

Prescription access to drug products containing this medicinal ingredient would benefit Canadians by decreasing the risks of improper use and by ensuring the guidance and care of a practitioner.

Another benefit would be that drug products for human use containing medicinal ingredients listed in Schedule F may be covered by both provincial and private health care plans.

  • Health insurance plans

Drug products for human use containing medicinal ingredients listed in Schedule F may be a cost covered by both provincial and private health care plans.

  • Provincial health care services

The provinces may incur costs to cover practitioners’ fees for services. However, the guidance and care provided by the practitioners would reduce the need for health care services that may result from improper use of drug products for human use that contain medicinal ingredients listed in Schedule F. The overall additional costs for health care services should therefore be minimal.

  • Manufacturers

Following implementation of this initiative, quinine, its salts and derivatives except in oral dosage form that provides 50 mg or less of quinine base per dosage unit or per daily dose, could no longer be sold without a valid Drug Identification Number (DIN) and prescription labelling. Notice of this proposed change in regulatory status is being communicated to the pharmaceutical industry through this Notice of Intent. This advance notice, in addition to a delayed coming into force after publication, would allow manufacturers of affected products sufficient time to make, and if satisfactory, obtain approval of their DIN submission. A letter will be sent to manufacturers affected by this proposed regulatory amendment which may assist them in beginning the preparation of the documents:

(1) Prescribing Information Part I: Health Professional Information; and

(2) Part II: Consumer Information.

Compliance and enforcement

This amendment would not alter existing compliance mechanisms under the provisions of the Food and Drugs Act, the Food and Drug Regulations and the Natural Health Products Regulations enforced by the Health Products and Food Branch Inspectorate.

Consultation

An initial letter to stakeholders was published on October 25, 2004, with a 30-day comment period. A second letter to stakeholders was posted on May 30, 2006, with a 75-day comment period under the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to streamline regulatory amendments to Schedule F. Four responses were received from stakeholders following the second consultation. Three respondents supported the proposal. One respondent requested that there be an exemption provided in the listing that would allow naturopathic doctors to continue to treat patients with quinine. That request led to further review of information on quinine and a revised proposal that includes an exemption from prescription status for oral dosage forms that provide 50 mg or less of quinine base per dosage unit or per daily dose.

The process for this current consultation with stakeholders is described in the MOU to streamline regulatory amendments to Schedule F, which came into effect on February 23, 2005. The MOU is posted on the Health Canada Web site.

Health Canada will send the Notice of Intent by email to stakeholders. The Notice of Intent will be published in the Canada Gazette, Part I, and will also be posted on the Health Canada and the “Consulting With Canadians” Web sites.

Any comments regarding this proposed amendment should be sent within 75 days following the date of posting of this NOI on the Health Canada Web site. The policy analyst for this project, Karen Ash, may be contacted at: Refer to Project Number: 1431, Bureau of Policy, Science and International Programs, Therapeutic Products Directorate, Health Canada, Holland Cross, Tower B, 2nd Floor, 1600 Scott Street, Address Locator: 3102C5, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 0K9, 613-948-4623 (telephone), 613-941-6458 (fax), regaff-affreg@hc-sc.gc.ca (email).

Final approval

In accordance with the MOU process, it is anticipated that the proposed Schedule F amendment will proceed directly from this consultation to consideration for final approval by the Governor in Council, approximately eight to ten months from the date of posting of this NOI on the Health Canada Web site. If the amendment is approved by the Governor in Council, publication in the Canada Gazette, Part II, would follow. The amendment would come into force 90 days after the date of publication in the Canada Gazette, Part II.
