Canada’s immigration application system set for a major revamp in wake of COVID-19
Canada’s immigration application process might undergo a complete overhaul as the government anticipates a surge of migrants to Canada post-COVID-19.
The federal immigration department is currently exploring new strategies on possibly handling millions of applications after the pandemic.
It says with the “new normal” in place, a revamp of the technology used in the immigration process is just what might be needed.
This includes limiting the amount of in-person contact among officials and potential newcomers.
Canada has experienced a near-halt on immigration last March when borders around the world shut closed to limit the spread of COVID-19.
