IRCC announces its Official Processing Timeframe | IRCC Weekly Update

On Wednesday August 9, 2023, IRCC updated its processing timeframes. These updates come on a weekly basis and they provide exact information that accounts for processing volumes and any changes to IRCC’s ability to handle applications.

Based on statistics from the past six months, the majority of citizenship and permanent residency services now provide processing timelines for 80% of applications which are updated weekly. Processing timeframes for temporary residence applications are also updated weekly based on statistics from the previous 8 or 16 weeks.

These processing timetables are intended to provide potential immigrants and visa applicants in Canada an idea of how long it will take to decide whether or not to accept their application.

However, this does not imply that your application will be processed in the same length 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.
