Canada welcomed 108,000 new permanent residents till now, the IRCC announced on the 31st of March.
In January, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser had announced that the goal for the first quarter of the year was final decisions on 147,000 permanent residence applications.
In three months, IRCC and the federal government have worked together to exceed this goal. The Minister also announced updates to the tool for online application processing time.
Quote by Immigration Minister Sean Fraser:
“While navigating unprecedented challenges in Canada’s immigration system, we have kept client experience as our focus, leading to record levels of newcomers in Canada. Helping clients come to Canada quickly, with predictable processing times and efficient communication, remains a top priority for me. Canada is proud to be a destination of choice for so many people around the world, and we will continue to work hard to provide the best experience possible for them.”
Quote by the IRCC in the announcement:
“Most permanent residence and citizenship services will now use dynamic processing times with updated calculations posted weekly based on data from the previous six months. Dynamic processing times for temporary residence services are already in place based on data from the past eight or 16 weeks. These changes will provide realistic and up-to-date information for clients and will reflect the volumes of applications being processed as well as the latest operational realities. They will allow those who want to come to Canada to live, work, and study to make plans based on a more accurate timeline.”
