visas default image The Government of Canada is gearing up for the expected surge in immigration applications once the global travel restriction or lockdown lifted or removed.

The immigration department of Canada, i.e. IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) offers the several services to the key categories of Immigrants to Canada, i.e. temporary foreign workers, Permanent residents, international students, visitors, citizenship applicants, refugees and asylum claimants and to the existing Canadian citizens for passports and other travel documentation, etc.

Canada is taking measure to help immigrants

In the month of March, like most other nations, Canada too took some containment measures to slow the spread and intensity of the Covid-19. However, at the same time, it continued to accept the new immigration applications and issue the invitations to apply for the visa.

However, now as the Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada is in process of easing out some of these measures, it anticipates the massive surge in immigration applications. The spike in applications is also expected as the global travel restrictions are being lifted one by one by different countries.

Hence, to deal with this upsurge, it is looking to modernize its immigration system and get equipped with the tools and technologies.

It will not only ensure the safety of the public as well as the IRCC staff, but also make certain that the applications are processed faster despite the rush and surge.

Here are few of these proposed technologies and solutions.

  • Digital tools to meet new physical distancing needs, reducing physical presence requirements with digital options (i.e. online citizenship testing, online visa and citizenship applications)
  • Technology solutions to incorporate digital solutions with the legacy case management system environment (GCMS Integration).
  • Introduction of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) capabilities to deal with reduction in agent capacity and address expected surge in volumes and allow agents to combat situations that are more complex.
