Canada is seeking to process and finalize 6,000 spousal sponsorship applications each month between October and December 2020.

This major news has just been announced by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

IRCC has increased the number of staff that will review spousal sponsorship applications by 66 per cent in order to reduce wait times and process applications more quickly.

In addition, IRCC is going to utilize new technology in a pilot to digitize paper applications. This is to allow IRCC employees working remotely and at various work settings to be able to quickly process applications.

IRCC said it will implement facilitative biometrics measures, but did not offer specifics.

In the coming weeks, it will also pilot technology to conduct interviews with applicants remotely.

These initiatives are aimed at accelerating, prioritizing, and finalizing about 6,000 spousal applications each month through to the end of 2020.

In all, this will result in 49,000 applications receiving decisions by the end of this year.
