Immigration Applications: Sponsorship Backlog and Processing Time
immigration applications: According to Hussen, the number of spousal immigration applications in the queue has dropped to 15,000 from 74,900 a year ago, and the average processing time has also been sharply reduced to 12 months from 26 months, according to Toronto Star. The Government of Canada is committed to family reunification. To celebrate Valentine's Day, Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen hosted a news conference at a Mississauga dessert shop to update his department's dramatic reduction of the spousal sponsorship backlog. We understand how important it is to reunite couples. Canadians who marry someone from abroad shouldn't have to wait for years to have them immigrate or be left with uncertainty in terms of their ability to stay. It also makes for a stronger Canada, said Hussen. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
