Expansion of Canada’s Biometrics Program

On April 10, 2018 Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (“IRCC’) announced that it will be implementing its Biometric Expansion Project with the Canada Border Services Agency, the Royal Mounted Police and Shared Services Canada (“SSC”), by July 31, 2018. The Biometric Expansion Project will require all visa-required persons applying for a work permit, study permit, temporary resident permit or temporary resident status, and all permanent resident applicants, to complete biometrics. Biometrics is done by fingerprint scan and photograph of your face. United States nationals are exempt from providing biometrics unless they are applying for Permanent Residency.
