June 30 - Breaking: The IRCC (Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada) confirmed in the latest media release that Canada is going to resume Visitor Visas & eTA processing from July 1st, 2020.
Can I Travel to Canada now?
Well, not now. The travel restrictions still apply, however Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is resuming processing in an effort to be proactive on future processing times. IRCC also plans to change the Canadian Immigration System in 2020. IRCC also notes that due to current travel restrictions, most people will not be able to travel to Canada at this time. Travel exemptions are for family members who are staying for more than 15 days or who are coming to Canada for an essential reason, skilled workers, and others. Travelers must also demonstrate to the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) that they are traveling for an essential reason in order to be granted entry to Canada.
Is Immigration Stopped too?
The answer is NO! Immigration is a long term process that requires you to put a lot of time and effort in order to get success. It does not require you to travel immediately. The government of Canada has not stopped immigration to date. In fact, the IRCC held more Express Entry Draws since the world pandemic was announced in March 2020.
Why Canada needs Immigration now more than ever? A major reason why Canada needs immigrants is that all of Canada’s nine million baby boomers will reach retirement age by the end of this decade. This is where immigration comes in. Since Canada has a low birth rate, it is relying on immigration to drive the majority of its labor force growth. Hence, it still makes sense to admit high levels of newcomers even during this period. Such immigrants will likely see more employers competing for their services, which would result in much better employment outcomes and salaries. Canada's Immigration Authorities said that we will continue to rely on immigration. Interested to start your Canadian Immigration Process? Now is the perfect time to apply!
