We live in a world where almost any information is right at our fingertips. With a click of a few buttons on the internet we can learn about any subject matter that interests us. Despite these modern conveniences, the ease with which we can access information comes at a cost: information is so readily accessible that we aren’t sure what information is real and reliable and what isn’t. When it comes to Canadian immigration law, readers of the official government immigration website should take a cautious approach when reviewing the information that is made available.

As we reach the end of 2020, the effects of COVID-19 on Canadian immigration levels has become apparent: the Department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has not processed and approved as many permanent residency applications as it expected to in 2020. In many cases, existing permanent residency applications will not be finalized in 2020 because of COVID-19 related shutdowns slowing down IRCC’s standard processing speed and preventing applicants from meeting basic immigration requirements such as obtaining police clearance results or completing biometrics (fingerprinting) enrolment.
