In an effort to both modernize and expedite the processing of immigration applications, Canada’s department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is transitioning to online processing of most permanent resident applications. On September 1, 2022, IRCC Minister Sean Fraser announced that starting from September 23, 2022, permanent residence applications will be going digital with a staggered implementation schedule. This announcement has both positive and negative implications.

On January 27, 2017, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (“IRCC”) announced the first details of a pilot project that offers a direct pathway to Canadian permanent residence for applicants who wish to permanently settle in Atlantic Canada. The “Atlantic Immigration Pilot Project” (AIPP) begins in March 2017 and will accept up to 2000 applications in its first year of operation. Citing a shrinking labour force and ageing population in Atlantic Canada, IRCC hopes that the pilot project will improve the economic outlook in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador in the years to come.
