IRCC Official processing timeframe | August 23

IRCC officially updates processing timeframes once a week. The last update was made on Tuesday August 22, 2023. These updates provide clear information that accounts for processing volumes as well as any changes to IRCC’s ability to handle applications.

Majority of citizenship and permanent residency services now provide processing timelines for 80% of applications, which are updated weekly based on statistics from the past six months. The IRCC is currently sending out AOR letters or emails to citizenship applicants who applied on paper or online between July 13, 2023.

The processing timeframes for temporary residence applications are also updated every week based on statistics from the previous 8 or 16 weeks.

These processing timetables are intended to give potential immigrants and visa applicants in Canada an idea of how long it will take to decide whether or not to accept their application. This does not mean that an application will be processed in the same amount of time.

Given that it is based on the processing times of 80% of applicants, the processing time for your application may be longer or shorter than stated.
