Canada welcomes over 108,000 permanent residents in early 2022
On March 31, 2022, the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Sean Fraser announced that IRCC has surpassed its goal to make 147,000 permanent resident final decisions in the first quarter of 2022—doubling the number of final decisions in the same period in 2021. Through these efforts, Canada has welcomed over 108,000 new permanent residents this year.
Supported by additional funding of $85 million from the 2021 Economic and Fiscal Update, IRCC is continuing efforts to reduce application inventories accumulated during the pandemic. The funding builds on the work that has already been done to reduce wait times, such as hiring new processing staff, digitizing applications, and reallocating work among IRCC’s offices around the world.
