IRCC is going through significant changes

significant changes

Last week, Canada’s immigration department made significant changes to improve the operations of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) based on a commissioned study. 

The changes were influenced by a report from Neil Yeates, a former Deputy Minister of IRCC, who evaluated the department’s structure and effectiveness. The department’s Deputy Minister, Christiane Fox, communicates with the Immigration Minister, Marc Miller, to implement the government’s elected mandate. 

The department aims to be more responsive to global changes and humanitarian crises and incorporate applicants’ experiences in its decision-making process.

After receiving the Yeates report and working with public stakeholders, such as IRCC applicants, Fox had a plan of action by June 2023. Since then, she has implemented the changes gradually.

Sectors where IRCC made significant changes

The department was recently reorganized into the following sectors, among other significant changes: 

  • Asylum and Refugee Resettlement
  • Citizenship and Passport
  • Chief Financial Officer
  • Chief Information Officer
  • Client Service, Innovation, and Chief Digital Officer
  • Communications

  • Economic, Family, and Social Migration
