Canada Spouse Sponsorship
After waiting three years for a sponsorship decision to be made by the Canadian immigration officials, Indrani Banerjee had her application denied. The lady from Mississauga is now facing another wait, which could last up to two years, for her appeal regarding the Citizenship and Immigration Canada to be heard.  Indrani Banerjee who originally came to Canada in 2011 from India  and her husband Mazhar Elahi Khan who is Pakistani born, are just one couple out of the thousands who have been involuntarily involved with the bureaucratic disturbance, which over the past five years has increased the average duration involved in the processing time for sponsorship appeals.
The Mississauga woman stated that the Canadian officials had declined the request for sponsorship due to them not believing the couple had a genuine marriage as Indrani Banerjee is older than her husband, the couple got married in 2010 in Toronto.
The Canadian department of immigration turn down around 15% of the thousands of applications they receive every year, on the grounds that they are unable to gather relevant health and criminal credentials or if they believe the application is fraudulent. Approximately half of the applications which are declined go on to appeal against the decision, if the applicant has a successful appeal they will then have start the entire application process again as there case will be sent to the visa department for a fresh assessment.
The Immigration and Refugee Board for Canada, who are responsible for the appeal tribunals in immigration, have reported a decrease in the number of cases for appeal, from 2008 when approximately 5,000 applications were made, to the beginning of 2013 when approximately 2,500 applicants applied. Appeals are referred to the Alternative Dispute Resolution program (ADR), by the tribunals, the  Alternative Dispute Resolution program is deemed to be informal, consensual and not as confrontational as other programs. Cases are referred prior to the appeal hearing, in order to reduce a backlog of claims held on the system.2013 saw a reduction of appeals through the ADR from 51% to 42%.
The reduction seen amongst cases through the Alternative Dispute Resolution program, is believed to be due to the decline in applications as a whole which are satisfactory and able to be passed on to the ADR, it is also a possibility that is is due to a decrease in resources which the program has been given from the Canadian immigration officials.
