DEPARTMENT OF CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION

STRENGTHENING CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP ACT

Notice requesting comments on a proposal to amend the Citizenship Regulations to implement certain provisions of the Citizenship Act, as amended by the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act

Summary

Notice is hereby given that Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) is seeking written comments from all interested parties on a proposal to amend the Citizenship Regulations to implement the revocation provisions of the Citizenship Act, as amended by the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act (SCCA).

Background

On June 19, 2014, Bill C-24, the SCCA, which is the first comprehensive reform to the Citizenship Act since 1977, received royal assent. The Bill includes measures to

This legislation stemmed from several government commitments, including the March 2010 Speech from the Throne, which indicated that legislation would be introduced to streamline the revocation of citizenship and to take steps against consultants who seek to defraud the system. Building on this undertaking, the 2013 Speech from the Throne promised a comprehensive reform of the Citizenship Act. The SCCA fulfills these commitments.

On royal assent and on August 1, 2014, certain provisions of the Citizenship Act, as amended by the SCCA, came into force, including provisions to streamline decision making on applications for grants of citizenship with the objective of reducing processing times. Preparations are underway to support the implementation of the revocation provisions of the Citizenship Act, as amended by the SCCA, which aim to reinforce the values of citizenship and better protect the safety and security of Canadians.  The revocation provisions include new expanded grounds for revocation of Canadian citizenship and establish a streamlined decision-making process. The new grounds will provide authority to revoke citizenship from dual citizens who have served as a member of an armed force or organized armed group engaged in armed conflict with Canada and those convicted of terrorism, high treason, treason or spying, depending on the sentence imposed.

Under the provisions regarding the streamlined decision-making process, decisions to revoke Canadian citizenship will be made by the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration or the Federal Court, depending on the ground for revocation. The Minister will decide on revocation cases involving the convictions listed above and most cases involving fraud. Cases to be decided by the Federal Court would be those cases of fraud involving concerns related to security, organized criminality, war crimes and crimes against humanity, and also cases involving membership in an armed force or organized armed group engaged in armed conflict with Canada, given that such cases raise complex issues of fact and law. In revocation cases based on fraud decided by the Federal Court, the Court could also be asked to make a finding of inadmissibility. This would allow for a removal order to be issued earlier in the process.

Description

The purpose of this Notice of Intent is to signal an intention to amend the Citizenship Regulations in order to implement the revocation provisions of the Citizenship Act, as amended by the SCCA.

In revocation proceedings where the Minister is the decision-maker, the Citizenship Act, as amended by the SCCA, provides that an oral hearing may be held if the Minister, on the basis of prescribed factors, is of the opinion that an oral hearing is required. Authority is also given to the Governor in Council (GIC) to make regulations to prescribe factors for the Minister to consider in deciding whether an oral hearing is required in a particular case.

Therefore, the objective of the proposed regulations is to prescribe the factors to consider in deciding whether an oral hearing is required when the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration is the decision-maker. These factors could include (1) an issue regarding credibility resulting from the evidence; (2) a person’s inability to make a written submission; or (3) whether the ground for revocation is based on a foreign conviction.

Comments

This Notice of Intent is an opportunity for the public to provide comments and input into the proposed regulatory amendments described above before the regulations are published in the Canada Gazette, Part II.

Anyone may, within 10 days of the publication of this notice, provide comments on this Notice of Intent, in writing, to the person named below at the address provided.

Questions and requests for additional information, as well as comments on this Notice of Intent, may be directed to Himmat Shinhat, Director, Legislation and Program Policy, Citizenship and Immigration Canada, 180 Kent Street, 6th Floor, Ottawa, Ontario K1A 1L1, 613-991-2485 (fax), Citizenship-Citoyennete@cic.gc.ca (email).

NOTICE OF VACANCY

CANADIAN TRANSPORTATION AGENCY

Chairperson and Member (full-time position)

Salary range: $262,600–$308,900
Location: National Capital Region

The Canadian Transportation Agency is an independent, adjudicative tribunal that makes decisions on a wide range of economic matters involving federally regulated modes of transportation (air, rail and marine) and has the powers, rights and privileges of a superior court to exercise its authority. Along with its roles as an economic regulator and an aeronautical authority, the Agency is responsible for removing undue obstacles to the mobility of persons with disabilities travelling in the national transportation network, and for resolving disputes involving a broad range of commercial and service matters, as provided for in the Canada Transportation Act.

The Chairperson and Member of the Agency fulfills three roles, each with distinct but equally important responsibilities. As the Chairperson and Member, he or she assigns work to the Agency’s members and oversees the provision of fair administrative decisions, regulatory interventions, and the mediation of disputes relating to the federal transportation system. As the head of the Agency, the Chairperson and Member leads and manages the organization and its administration, staff, and budget resources, and as an Agency Member, the Chairperson adjudicates and makes determinations regarding economic regulatory matters.

The ideal candidate would have a degree from a recognized university in the field of transportation, economics, law, public administration, business administration, commerce or political science, or an acceptable combination of education, job-related training and/or experience.

The ideal candidate would have significant management experience at the senior executive level in a complex private or public sector organization, including managing financial and human resources. In particular, experience as a chairperson, deputy head, deputy minister or chief executive officer would be considered an asset. Demonstrated decision-making experience at a senior level with respect to complex and sensitive issues is desired. He or she would have experience dealing with Government, preferably with senior government officials. Furthermore, the candidate would have experience in the development and/or implementation of policy, performance standards and operational procedures. Experience working in a regulated industry, in the field of transportation (i.e. air, rail and marine transportation), in administrative law and/or with adjudicative tribunals or economic regulators would be considered an asset.

The ideal candidate would possess knowledge of the mandate and role of the Canadian Transportation Agency, including its adjudicative, administrative, dispute resolution and regulatory functions. Knowledge of the federally regulated transportation industry, its structure, performance characteristics and economic impact, as well as trends, issues and developments related to the industry, is sought. This candidate would be knowledgeable about economic, financial and management concepts and how they pertain to regulatory activities and to the analysis of transportation issues. Knowledge of the operations of Government, including those related to sound management principles, accountability and transparency, as well as knowledge of the interpretation and application of legislation, regulations and policies in a decision-making environment, is desired.

The ideal candidate would possess excellent managerial and leadership skills, including the ability to manage significant change and conflicting priorities. The ability to analyze differing opinions and complex situations with a view to making decisions that are fair and equitable is sought. In addition, he or she would possess the ability to foster debate and discussion among Agency members and facilitate consensus, as well as manage conflicts, should they arise. The candidate would also have the ability to develop effective working relationships with the Minister and government officials, while maintaining the degree of independence required of an adjudicative tribunal. Superior communication skills, both written and oral, are desired.

To achieve the Agency’s objectives and carry out its mandate, the Chairperson and Member would possess sound judgment and superior interpersonal skills. A person of integrity, he or she would also possess high ethical standards, tact and diplomacy, and would be impartial and fair.

Proficiency in both official languages would be preferred.

The successful candidate must reside in or be willing to relocate to the National Capital Region or to a location within reasonable commuting distance, as well as travel to hearings and for meetings with stakeholders.

The Chairperson and Member shall not, directly or indirectly, as owner, shareholder, director, officer, partner or otherwise, be engaged in a transportation undertaking or business. Moreover, the Chairperson and Member shall not have an interest in a transportation undertaking or business or an interest in the manufacture or distribution of transportation plant or equipment, unless the distribution is merely incidental to the general merchandising of goods.

The Chairperson and Member must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident within the meaning of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.

The Government is committed to ensuring that its appointments are representative of Canada’s regions and official languages, as well as of women, Aboriginal peoples, disabled persons and visible minorities.

The selected candidate must comply with the Ethical and Political Activity Guidelines for Public Office Holders. The Guidelines are available on the Governor in Council Appointments Web site, under “Reference Material,” at www.appointments-nominations.gc.ca/index.asp?lang=eng.

The selected candidate will be subject to the Conflict of Interest Act.

The ideal candidate would possess the ability to provide leadership and the strategic direction required for the Office of the Extractive Sector CSR Counsellor to uphold its mandate and attain its objectives and the ability to interact constructively and credibly with a variety of stakeholders such as local communities, public institutions, governments, and other organizations. The ideal candidate would have the ability to develop effective working relationships with the Minister, the Minister’s office, the Deputy Minister and senior government officials as well as the ability to apply analytical, interpretative and evaluative thinking to situations and to anticipate the short- and long-term consequences of his or her strategies. Superior communications skills, both written and oral, and the ability to manage communications with a variety of stakeholders are also desired.

The ideal candidate would possess superior interpersonal skills and strong intercultural competencies, and be an individual of high ethical standards and integrity. He or she would also act with tact and discretion and be flexible and resilient.

Proficiency in both official languages would be preferred, and proficiency in additional languages would be considered an asset.
