Backlog of Canadian Permanent Resident Applications Reduced
How the Backlog Changed the Canadian Permanent Residence Application Process
This massive backlog has been partly responsible for a number of different changes to Canada’s immigration system, namely the introduction of the SuperVisa for parents and grandparents over family sponsorship for permanent residency.
The backlog also led to a long pause in the acceptance of Federal Skilled Worker applications and Immigrant Investor applications.
High Processing Times for Canadian Permanent Residence Applications Over?
This backlog had led to processing times of permanent resident applications taking as long as eight to ten years in some cases, with about five years being the average time it took to process applications.
The goal for Citizenship and Immigration is for processing of these applications to only take about a year or less in the future.
“Backlogs and delays prevent Canada from attracting the best and brightest from around the world and ensuring that our immigration system is contributing to to economic growth and long-term prosperity,” said Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney. “For too long, we accepted far more applications than we could process each year. That led to backlogs increasing every year and processing times of eight to ten years in some cases, which discouraged talented, dynamic people from coming to Canada.”
