Faster Processing of Spousal Sponsorship Applications
Thursday, December 8, 2016
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has created a backgrounder on changes in how they handle spousal sponsorship applications. This includes information on:
- Faster processing times.
- Shorter wait periods for applications.
- Improvements to the application process.
- A commitment to a 12-month processing time.
The government also announced a 1-year extension of a pilot program to provide eligible spouses and partners work permits while they wait for their applications to be processed.
