According to Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce, Canada needs changes in the immigration policies to attract foreign students in the country. As per the current Immigration Policies, Canadian Government is not granting Permanent Residency Rights to foreign students. It is not facilitating participation of foreign graduates in its labour force thus, discouraging meaningful immigration.

DP Jain, President of Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce (ICCC) said that- “Most of the foreign students come to Canada not only to study with few rights but to immigrate with their families as soon as possible, and therefore they should be given permanent residency rights on completion of their studies”. He further added that- “The existing immigration policy is unclear as it does not clarify the rights of the foreign graduates that whether they have to leave the country after their studies and exhaust of their work visa period

Jain is leading a 50-member Indo-Canadian trade delegation to participate in the upcoming Pravasi Bharatiya Divas and Vibrant Gujarat Summit being held in Gandhinagar from January 7 next year, to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi's return to India from South Africa. The members of the delegation are Canadian Immigration Minister Chris Alexander, Senator Asha Seth, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Deepak Obhrai, and former president of the ICCC Naval Bajaj. The delegation will also visit Mumbai, Jaipur and Delhi to discuss with top officials and businesses, emerging business opportunities between the two countries and would seek cooperation between the two sides.
