The Hill Times Interviews Business Immigration Lawyer Evelyn Ackah: Express entry economic immigration timelines a ‘joke,’ say lawyers as processing times increase

Express Entry processing times were increasing before the pandemic. Evelyn Ackah, founder of Ackah Business Immigration Law in Calgary, laughed when she repeated the program's name. "Express Entry, that's a joke. When they first launched that program a few years ago, it was incredible."

Canada promises the express entry pathway for skilled foreign workers will take six months, but lawyers say it's ‘not working’ as none of the programs met that standard last fiscal year. The trend is getting slower and slower.
