    TORONTO: The friendship between Canada and India was stronger than ever before and both nations should continue to work to remove the barriers that hinder bilateral trade and investment, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has said. "The friendship between Canada and India is stronger, it is stronger than it has ever been and that is something that we all, in both of our countries, should be very proud of," Harper said while addressing a programme to commemorate India's 68th Independence Day here last night. "The Government will continue to work to break-down barriers that hinder bilateral trade and investment, and that senior members of our Government will continue to visit India," Harper said. "Just a couple of years ago I had the great fortune of returning to India," Harper said adding that "because one trip was obviously not near enough to even to scratch the surface of that large, ancient and fascinating civilisation". "Since taking office our Government has worked hard to revitalise and strengthen Canada- India relations. We have concluded a Social Security Agreement, an historic Nuclear Cooperation Agreement, and we have launched our own bilateral Canada-India free trade negotiations," Harper said. Referring to Immigration Reforms, Harper said that the reforms have been working and they have been working well. "Today, the permanent residency approval rate for applicants from India is more than 85 per cent. I should add that these men and women don't have to wait another four or five or six years for their residency because our Government has reduced processing times for recent applicants down to just one year".

    Canada is a great country with probably the highest standard of living humanity has ever known. Indians are lucky to be able to make this country their homeland and Canada is lucky to be able to get highly skilled and industrious immigrants who thrive in peace and stability. I hope many more indians and all decent asians come to canada to contribute and make it their home
