How Long Will My Application Take To Be Processed?

Application times vary according to Visa Offices you can find the processing times on the CIC website.

Most provinces in Canada have an agreement with the Canadian Government which allows them to select potential immigrants to settle and or immigrate in that territory. After you have been nominated by a Province or Territory you must then make a separate application to Citizenship and Immigration Canada for Permanent Residence.  You must also pass a medical exam and provide a police certificate.

Our job here at Niren and Associates is to make sure that your application is put together the right way and that you have the best possible chance to be accepted into the program.

This process can be long and confusing, here at Niren and Associates we have great staff who are ready to cater to all your immigration needs. We are here to assist you every step of the way,  contact us today.
