Canadian Immigration Process to Modernize After the Travel Restrictions

Canadian Immigration Process to Modernize After the Travel Restrictions

New federal government document highlights how Canada believes its immigration system will be affected after the COVID-19.

Canada expects a significant increase in immigration demands once the restrictions on international travel begin to ease. This is revealed in a new document that is available to the public on a federal government website.

The purpose of the document is to find a supplier who can help Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) modernize the way it processes immigration applications.

Special Measures for COVID-19

The document notes that the coronavirus pandemic has had an impact on IRCC operations. Canada has implemented travel restrictions to slow the spread of COVID-19, and federal government employees in Canada and abroad adhere to strict social distancing and working at a distance.

However, IRCC continues to do its best to fulfill its mandate towards temporary foreign workers, international students, visitors, permanent residents, citizenship applicants, refugees, asylum seekers, and Canadian citizens.

IRCC has introduced many special measures to support the processing of applications from foreign nationals during this period.

On the other hand, the document acknowledges that many IRCC treatment and contact centers have been closed or are operating at considerably reduced capacity. This has significantly limited IRCC’s ability to process requests.

IRCC looking to improve application processing

Once IRCC operations have returned to normal, the Department expects to have significantly different digital policies, procedures, and solutions to manage the peak post-coronavirus in the applications it waits for.

IRCC seeks to be proactive in developing new strategies, new processes, and new digital systems to enable it to better fulfill its mandate.

IRCC, for example, would like to use digital processes as much as possible to minimize the need for processes in person or on paper. This would not only protect the safety of IRCC and the public but could also result in more efficient and faster processing of requests.

As such, IRCC is looking for a supplier to support its modernization efforts in the following ways:

  • Develop tools and technologies to rapidly increase IRCC’s operational capacity so it can handle current manual application processing challenges and the anticipated surge in applications.
  • Develop digital tools to address new social distancing requirements by reducing the need for in-person meetings through digital solutions (e.g., online citizenship testing, and visa and citizenship applications)
  • Identify digital technology solutions for IRCC’s case management system
  • Identify how to automate certain processes so that immigration agents can focus more of their time on complex immigration applications
  • Incorporate data analytics solutions to provide insights on operational volumes and processing capacities so that IRCC can effectively respond to changes in Canada and abroad
  • Develop strategies to strengthen IRCC’s cybersecurity

Canada committed to welcome more immigrants

As part of Canada’s current 2020-2022 Immigration Levels Plan, the country is looking to welcome more than one million immigrants over the next three years.

The coronavirus pandemic slowed immigration to Canada in 2020, but Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino said Canada remains committed to welcoming immigration to support its economy.

In addition, Canada currently holds Express Entry Program and Provincial Nominee (PNP) draws, in addition to processing study and work permits and allowing immediate families to enter the country.

It is highly likely that Canada will experience a large increase in arrivals of permanent and temporary residents once the global economic and health situation improves. Before the pandemic began, Canada welcomed a record number of immigrants, foreign workers, and international students.

After implementing its new strategies and full adaptation to the new technological process, IRCC will be fully equipped to process the more applications for Canada PR Visa after the pandemic is over.
