Media Advisory: Citizenship and Immigration Canada

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 22, 2010) - Citizenship and Immigration Canada has released three new videos on its website (www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/media/multimedia/index.asp) and YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/CitImmCanada) on helping newcomers adapt to living in Canada.

The "New Canadian Permanent Resident Card" video explains new security features incorporated into the card that permanent residents must present to re-enter Canada. Permanent residents are encouraged to renew their cards well before the expiration date.

Part of the Becoming Canadian series, "Provincial Nominee Program" and "Canadian Experience Class: Temporary Foreign Workers" explain how one can qualify to come to Canada to work under these programs.

Media interested in obtaining the videos in Betacam SP or HD to broadcast as a public service announcement should contact john.grant@cic.gc.ca.
