The newsgroup misc.immigration.canada has been created in
September/November 1994, the rationale behind the move was as presented=
 below:

"The only newsgroup which is carrying discussions about (USA) immigration
issues is alt.visa.us. However, there is no such news- group in the
mainstream hierarchies. There has been a lot of discussions and enquiries
about Canadian immigration issues in alt.visa.us, which is not the
appropriate newsgroup, but since there is no such newsgroup as
alt.visa.canada the discussions are taking place in the alt.visa.us=
 newsgroup.
Citizens of any other countries who also have questions about immigration
issues in, say, an Asian country, do not have a place to address them.=20

Several new newsgroups are therefore needed to discuss immigration issues,
like how to obtain visas, permanent residency, and citizenship, for all
countries in the world, beside the USA and Canada. It is hoped that in the
future any questions regarding these issues could be addressed in the
appropriate place.=20

Rather than making a new alt.visa newsgroup for Canada or for other
countries separately, it is a better idea to create several newsgroups in
the big seven hierarchies according to the following schemes: USA, Canada,
and misc. At this moment all other countries except the USA and Canada are
represented in the proposed misc.immigration.misc newsgroup."
