The new online family sponsorship application tracker
The Minister of Immigration, Sean Fraser, announced the launch of an online application tracker for people who are applying for spousal, common-law, and dependent child sponsorship. The online tracker allows these family class permanent residence applicants, sponsors and their representatives to check their application status online.
“This new tracker is an example of how we are taking steps to give clients the dedicated and transparent service they expect and deserve,” said the Honourable Sean Fraser.
The online application tracker is part of the new functionalities to transform the immigration system into a modern platform. The government is also working to provide similar solutions to additional applicant groups.
These measures to improve the client experience are an effort to minimize processing delays. According to a media release, processing times for spousal sponsorship applicants have returned to the standard of 12 months for new applications.
