This article discusses two perspectives that have so far been overlooked in the worldwide debate on immigration, specifically immigration in Canada. The first exposes immigration policy as an essential element in the neoliberal policy of unlimited economic growth, which is unsustainable in the face of the impending ecological crisis. The second demonstrates that this immigration policy, which is similar in all OECD countries, favours the selection of the best educated, most experienced, and often the richest individuals from the countries of origin, and is thereby building a new colonialist policy of the West towards developing countries.

Keywords: Politics, Power, Institutions, Neo-colonialism, Welfare in a Global Context, International Structures and Institutions of Governance
