Need Help With Canada Immigration? The Backlog Is Now 2.7 Million People

Canada's immigration backlog has grown to 2.7 million people. For foreigners who want to move to Canada, wait times are increasing. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau created a federal task force of cabinet ministers in June to address the backlog to make recommendations to fast-track the immigration process and to address issues that are causing the delay in application processing. The task force will create both long-term and short-term solutions that will clear the backlogs and improve the quality and speed of services:

We know service delays, particularly in recent months, are unacceptable. We will continue to do everything we can to improve the delivery of these services in an efficient and timely manner, and this new task force will help guide the work of the government to better meet the changing needs of Canadians and continue to provide them with the high-quality services they need and deserve.
- Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

The Immigration Refugees Citizenship Canada (IRCC) backlog increased to 2,679,031 as of July 17, 2022 - a 291,147 increase over the June backlog. While other programs are increasing, the Express Entry backlog is reducing, and IRCC resumed all program Express Entry Draws on July 6.

#1 Way to Expedite Your Move to Canada:

5 Reasons to Call a Canada Immigration Lawyer TODAY

  1. Higher Success Rate
    Immigration applications to Canada have a significantly higher rate of success - nearly double! - when the applicant hires an immigration lawyer instead of filling the application out themselves or hiring an immigration consultant, according to an independent study.
  2. Streamline the Application Process
    An experienced immigration lawyer has years of experience navigating Canada's challenging immigration system and can help simplify the process so nothing is missed or misunderstood.
  3. Mistakes Can Be Costly and Stressful
    An immigration lawyer can identify potential problems in your application, and advise you on your best alternative options BEFORE you submit your application.
  4. Reapplying After Your Application is Denied is Challenging
    If your immigration application to IRCC has been denied, it is more difficult to have it approved if you re-apply - and costs additional time and money.
  5. Immigration Lawyers Have Advanced Technology and Expertise with Difficult Cases
    A missed deadline or incomplete application can result in your immigration application being denied.

* Immigration applicants are not required to hire a lawyer.
