Don't Get Lost In The Immigration Backlog: Let Ackah Business Immigration Law Smooth Your Journey

If you are currently trying to move to Canada for work, school, or family, a primary concern is that you don't get lost in the backlog. Canada wants immigrants to fill jobs and create new businesses to strengthen the economy, but Canada's immigration backlog has never been worse, and millions are getting lost in the immigration backlog. The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship said in a press release,

Canada is a destination of choice for people looking for a new place to work, study and build their lives with their families, and immigration is key to helping employers fill hundreds of thousands of vacant positions across the country and grow our economy.

But with an ongoing backlog of over 2,400,000 citizenship, permanent residence and temporary residence immigration applicants, the wait for approval has been over 2 years for many people. Canada's Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) attributes the backlog to:

  • the pandemic and related border closures and closed immigration offices
  • the war in Ukraine and other humanitarian crises
  • aging technology that is unable to handle the paperwork backlog
  • insufficient staffing to address the backlog and maintain new levels of applications

IRCC has put measures in place to address the backlog, but they are slow in solving the problem"

  1. $85 million in additional funding for immigration under the Economic and Fiscal Update 2021
  2. hiring up to 1,250 new employees by the end of the fall to increase IRCC processing capacity and tackle the backlogs
  3. investing in new technology and improving current systems
