CANADA DAY CELEBRATIONS –
150th ANNIVERSARY OF CONFEDERATION
The official emblem of Canada 150 is a series of 13 diamonds in the shape of a maple leaf, each diamond representing one of the 13 provinces and territories. The four core red diamonds represent the first four provinces of the Confederation of Canada.
Canadians, rich in our origins, celebrated the 150th birthday of the youthful and promising Canada on 1 July 2017, Canada Day.
One hundred and fifty years ago, on 1 July 1867, the Dominion of Canada was formed by the signing of the British North America Act which was drafted in London, England by the Fathers of the Confederation. The first four provinces of Canada were New Brunswick, Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia.
The remaining 9 provinces and territories joined the Confederation over the next 82 years, Saskatchewan and Alberta joined second and third last in 1905 and Newfoundland and Labrador in 1949.

GOING TO PARLIAMENT TO PROTECT THE PUBLIC
Cobus Kriek, the Owner of Matrixvisa Inc, was invited by the ‘Canadian Parliamentary Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration’ to appear before the committee on 5 April 2017. He will be providing an opinion about the role of oversight bodies in regulating and providing adequate oversight of regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants.
Matrixvisa receives dozens of complaints about so called “Ghost agents” or unregulated agents in South Africa and Canada every year. Last year we reported some of these individuals to the Canadian Federal Prosecution Service. We hope that our contribution to the committee will further assist to protect the public from unscrupulous immigration agents.
Our contribution to the Committee will be made available on our website after we make the presentation.
VISIT TO NAMIBIA & SOUTH AFRICA – MAY 2017
We are pleased to announce that Matrixvisa will be visiting Namibia for the first time on our next trip to South Africa in May 2017.

The Minister of Immigration Refugees and Citizenship (IRCC) has indicted on 12 Aug that he plans to substantially increase immigration to Canada. The expectation is that the number of immigrants will slowly increase over the coming years.
Last month Matrixvisa Inc. was invited by the IRCC to participate in an event with the federal government on 25 Aug 2016 to provide feedback to the federal government on Express Entry. We attended and provided feedback to contribute to the hoped for improvement of the present Express Entry System.
In August, Matrixvisa Inc. also sent letters containing suggestions for immigration policy changes to the following parties:
