Canada's Immigration BACKLOG The Latest Canada Immigration News & What You Need to Know

Canada’s Growing Immigration Backlog

You may know that there has been an immense backlog of Canada’s immigration applications. But now, it seems the numbers have gone up. Read this blog to find out about this latest update.


Recently, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has given an update in which they have indicated an increase in the Canadian immigration backlog. On August 31, 2023, there was a 5.25% rise in the backlog of applications under processing. The data is updated monthly by the IRCC and provides insight into Canada’s immigration system’s current state.

Temporary Residency Applications: A Mixed Bag

Although there’s an increase in the overall backlog, temporary residency applications have a bit of a silver lining. Compared to previous updates, these applications have seen a 6.11% decrease.

However, the temporary residency applications meeting the standards of IRCC’s services have dropped by 14.52%, which showcases a shift of various applications towards the backlog category.

Permanent Residency and Citizenship: Minor Fluctuations

There has been a marginal increase of 0.17% in the backlog for the permanent residency application. Moreover, compared to the last update, there has been a huge drop of 11% in the backlog for citizenship applications.

Navigating the Backlog Challenges

The IRCC prediction for 2023 sees a continuous reduction in backlog for many categories. The goal is to smooth the process and process the application on time. However, looking at the continuous backlog, the Canadian immigration authorities need to put in more effort and adaptability.
