Canada has introduced five new measures for stronger immigration services which are mentioned below.
Certain in-Canada applicants exempt from medical exams
In an attempt to decrease the processing times, Sean Fraser has decided to exclude the permanent and temporary residence applicants living in Canada, from the requirement of immigration medical.
This measure applies only to the individuals who meet the eligibility criteria, which is not yet released and the IRCC expects it to impact about 180,000 newcomers.
Earlier, Canada renounced the requirement of the medical exam between June 2021 and March 2022 and it mentioned that the measure is meant to reduce the processing times and focus on the hiring of 1,250 new employees to increase the capability of processing further.

A higher number of programs have application status trackers
Like the application status trackers such as a spousal, partner, and dependent child sponsorship applicants which has been launched in February 2022, seven more permanent residence and temporary residence programs will have trackers by spring 2023.
The citizenship applications status tracker introduced in May 2021 will be extended to include access to the representatives in the month of September 2022.
However, the IRCC is enhancing its tool to process online applications faster to offer accurate information and it will publish progressive measures of the time taken to process an application.

In 2021, the IRCC has reached a record high by inviting over 405,000 new permanent residents to Canada and also mentioned its target for 2022. The country is set to welcome 431,000 permanent residents and moving forward to achieve it.
Sean Fraser has stated, “according to statistics Canada, we have invited more than 300,000 permanent residents to Canada on August 22, exceeding the previous record compared to the last few years.”
Fraser said, “Immigration is about creating a new life by starting a new job and reuniting a family in this beautiful country which is considered as a home country.” *To get more updates, follow the Y-Axis blog page…
