About Canadian Immigration Wait Times…

It is not a rare occurrence to have clients phone into our office to inquire about the long wait times for the processing of their applications by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Unfortunately, Canada’s desirability as a new home for those wishing for a fresh start is the main cause of this backlog.

Check CIC’s Website for Immigration Wait Times

However, while long waits are par for the course, particularly for applications for permanent residence, they need not be excessive. At Niren & Associates, we consistently ensure that our clients’ files are up-to-date and that their applications are being processed at normal rates by CIC. We do our very best to make sure you get a response regarding your application as quickly as possible.

Canadian Immigration Wait Times Can Vary

I strongly recommend that everyone consult with CIC’s webpage and be aware of the standard wait time for the application you wish to file. Keep in mind that errors and omissions on your applications can increase their wait time, or even result in a rejection. To ensure the lowest possible Canadian immigration wait time, contact a licensed immigration lawyer.

    One way to avoid long wait times altogether is to consider applying for Temporary Visas as a “first step” towards Immigration. Student or Work Visas are processed much faster than Permanent Residence Applications and in some cases, having a temporary visa will strengthen your future application for Permanent Residence. It is a “win-win” scenario!
