25-day timeframe extended due to excess applications

Montréal, September 30, 2016 - Since June 2016, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has been working to reduce the current backlog in sponsorship applications. In this context, the Ministère is receiving an exceptional volume of family sponsorship files.

Due to this situation, it is impossible for us to respect the 25-day timeframe stipulated in the Déclaration de services à la clientèle for processing a sponsorship application. However, we have implemented the necessary resources to quickly meet this demand and return to a normal timeframe as soon as possible.

Since the Ministère is working with the IRCC to ensure that these files are processed, there will not be any additional delays in issuing permanent residence visas to sponsored persons. Steps have also been taken to ensure that the parties involved do not have to be concerned about the date of issue of their Certificat de sélection du Québec. The Ministère will look after this in concert with the IRCC.

For more information, see the IRCC notice.
