  • Canada's massive immigration backlog is finally easing

    According to reports, data released by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), has shown that the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) inventory went down by over 9,000 applicants between December 15, 2021 and February 28, 2022.

    The number of Canadian Experience Class (CEC) applicants on the waiting list dropped by over 12,000.

    Almost 24,000 visas were processed under the Express Entry pathway as a whole.

    There are 3 immigration programs managed through Express Entry:
    • Canadian Experience Class
    • Federal Skilled Worker Program
    • Federal Skilled Trades Program
    At the start of 2021, Canada decided to shift focus, slowing down FSWP processing, and transitioning more temporary residents to permanent residence holders, mainly through the CEC, to give it a better shot of achieving its 401,000 immigrants target. Before the pandemic, the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) accounted for almost half of successful Express Entry candidates.

    Canada's massive immigration backlog is finally easing, with the new Liberal government announcing plans to add 10,000 refugees to the country's intake in the next year. The previous Conservative government had been criticized for its slow response to the issue, with thousands of people waiting years for their applications to be processed. The new government is hoping that its plans will speed up the process and help fill the needs of Canada's growing population.

      IRCC's backlog has grown to 2.4 million persons. The backlog has grown by 257,499 persons over the past month, largely due to a significant increase in temporary residence applications. The citizenship inventory stands at 394,664 applicants as of June 1, compared to 399,325 on May 2.
