Applying to immigrate to Canada is very eventful, and it is extremely frustrating when applications take a long time. IRCC has made some changes for improving the experience of PR clients. Presently, clients will have an accurate idea of the length of the processing time that their immigration application is likely to take for several categories in permanent resident applications.  From July 31st, 2018, IRCC has started to use an improved method for estimating the processing time for the new PR applications.

The processing times informs the applicants the time the applications will take in normal circumstances in case they are presented today. The change in effect, will take into consideration several factors, like the number of existing applications waiting for processing. Besides the volume of admissions permitted in each year in the multi-year immigration levels plan is also a factor.

Additional facts

In the past, IRCC made great progress to reduce the processing times in many PR categories. Moreover it was successful in meeting the increasing demand for visitor/ work visas, and  Canada study permits. This improvement was possible owing to the multi-year increase in immigration level. As a result there is an advance planning, and implementation of intake controls. IRCC is also using innovation in its processes outside and inside Canada.

Additionally in the past all processing times in permanent residence application were historical. They showed the time taken for processing 80% applications. The new method for projecting the processing times aims to provide an accurate estimate to the clients.

IRCC is moving towards an integrated and modern working environment so that all immigration applications are processed more efficiently. The aim is to provide the great value for money for taxpayers, and also improve the service generally.

Care and changes

There is a careful monitoring of the processing times and also there will be further changes if there is a necessity. Improving the service experience of clients is always in the focus. This measure will also help the clients to have a better preparation to move to Canada in case of approval of application.
