IRCC immigration applications at a glance
It’s crucial to keep track of the applicants for programs in order to accomplish annual immigration targets and reach IRCC’s objectives. Any applications submitted for a program that has not yet been accepted are listed in an inventory. This includes both those that are processed in accordance with service standards and a backlog of applications that have been in inventories for an extended period of time.
IRCC is continuously managing more than 1 million applications from our inventories. In all business areas, IRCC finalized more than 5.2 million decisions in 2022.
Visa Application Backlog Reducing
To clear the backlog of applications in inventories, IRCC is taking action. 80% of applications should be processed within service standards, according to IRCC. This compensates for expected delays in some really complicated situations or when IRCC needs more data from its clients before they can complete their applications.
