The annual conference for Immigration Practitioners

The annual conference for Immigration Consultants

Today, The Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants (CAPIC) is celebrating the 17th annual National Citizenship and Immigration Conference (NCIC). This conference features more than 36 top-level industry experts including government speakers, immigration consultants, and immigration lawyers. Our CEO and RCIC, Al Parsai is now attending this two-day conference and he brings us some interesting data.

About the strategies and successes of Canadian Immigration

Immigration Minister Sean Fraser participated on the first day of the NCIC 2022. During the meeting, the Minister pointed out several resources, policies and technologies that the department has been implementing to get the immigration system back on track. These include:

In addition, the Minister said that one of the most important strategies is the 2022-2024 Immigration Levels Plan. This plan aims to welcome 431,645 permanent residents this year. “By expanding the total number of spaces in our Immigration Levels Plan, we are going to be able to sort through these numbers (backlogs) more quickly,” added the Minister.

About processing times

Minister Fraser also emphasized that he expects most of the lines of business to get back to a normal standard by the end of this calendar year. This is similar to what he said in a study conducted by the Canadian Parliament’s Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration. During the study, Fraser told the Committee that: 

“getting back to a reasonable volume and reasonable processing times is not just good to give peace of mind to the applicant. But, certainty to potential employers as well as when their new highly-skilled talent is going to arrive at the workplace. This is going to make a big difference and it is going to allow thousands of people to come and make a contribution to our communities.”
