Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is now processing more spousal immigration applications following a slowdown at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic.
Prior to the pandemic, Canada was aiming to welcome 70,000 new immigrants under its Spouses, Partners and Children category. Under its new 2021-2023 Immigration Levels Plan this target will increase to around 80,000 annually moving forward.
Most of those welcomed under this category are the wives, husbands, and partners of Canadian citizens and permanent residents who sponsor them.
Immigration processing and admissions have slowed due to the pandemic however IRCC made a major announcement in late-September that it would aim to expedite up to 6,000 spousal applications per month between September and December 2020.
