Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) presented these IRCC Digital Modernization slides to immigration representatives including the Canadian Bar Association’s Immigration Law Section in a meeting on October 12, 2022.
What follows is an overview designed to provide a look into the steps IRCC is taking to modernize application management systems.
Why Canada has prioritized improving its immigration systems
Canada recognizes that is it crucial for the country’s prosperity that they work to alter the application management systems for Canada’s immigration programs. In a January 2022 press release, Immigration Minister Sean Fraser said:
“I know that processing delays have been incredibly frustrating for many individuals. Helping clients come to Canada quickly, with predictable processing times and efficient communication with IRCC, remains a top priority. Immigration benefits all Canadians—it helps grow our economy and strengthens our communities across the country. Many people are choosing Canada as the place to visit and build their future, and to ensure that we stay competitive, we have introduced concrete measures to make sure those who want to come to Canada have the client experience they deserve.”
