For the past few months, distressing news had been floating across platforms about huge
backlogs in immigration applications but this week Sean Fraser, Canada’s Minister of IRCC,
came bearing a piece of good information for applicants.
In an official press release, he stated that the country is right on track to reach its target of this
year to welcome more than 431,000 new permanent residents and has processed a record 4.8
million immigration applications till the end of November 2022.
The agency has digitized applications, hired and trained new employees, streamlined processes,
and harnessed automation technologies to increase processing efficiency while protecting the
safety and security of Canadians to help strengthen our immigration system. The department
continues to make strides in improving processing resulting in shorter wait times for our clients.
In addition to that, nearly 700,000 work permits were processed by the IRCC, and over 670,000
study permits were processed by November 30. It’s a relief for students that most new study
permits are now being processed within the 60-day service standard. Furthermore, over 260,000
visitor visas were processed in the month of November alone.
