immigration inventories and backlogs

On April 18, 2023, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) updated the data on immigration inventories and backlogs. According to the last update, there were 2,017,700 applications for permanent residence, temporary residence, and citizenship approvals in all IRCC inventories. According to the update, 44.4% of applications in the inventory exceeded service standards. 

IRCC is dedicated to processing 80% of applications within their service standard, though some complex cases may require a comprehensive assessment. Currently, 46% of temporary residence requests – including ones for visiting, studying, or working abroad and 51% of permanent residency applications are in the backlog. Additionally, 25% of citizenship applications are also exceeding service standards.

 

Updated immigration inventories and backlogs

To clear the backlog of applications in their inventories, IRCC is taking action. The IRCC intends to process 80% of applications in accordance with its service standards. This enables anticipated delays in some extremely complex situations or where clients must provide additional information before IRCC can finalize their applications.
