Those looking to immigrate to Canada should be prepared to face extensive delays, says a Toronto-based immigration lawyer, citing pandemic-related hurdles causing a backlog of applications.

Chantal Desloges told CTV’s Your Morning on Monday that it’s been difficult to advise clients about the processing timeline due to the unpredictability of COVID-19.

"The department began holding virtual citizenship ceremonies on April 1, beginning with individuals and families whose citizenship ceremony had been cancelled, and who needed citizenship for urgent reasons, like employment," said Kevin Lemkay.

On Friday, Immigration Minister Marco Mendicino announced a temporary measure to provide permanent residency to asylum claimants working in Canada’s health-care sector during the pandemic.

Thank god.


That’s good we need a ten year halt to immigration in this country

Fantastic news!

Canada needs immigrants to thrive. Apparently, we aren’t making enough babies to keep up the population growth. More people mean more needs for goods and services, hence more jobs. Even refugees will eventually work and contribute. But gov needs good planning to take in people.

why bother.......just sneak in 1500 illegal immigrants .......oh sorry 'asylum seekers' a month crossing the border can't be all

Well at least some good came out of covid19

With the recent machete killings and ied’s I’d say delayed is good

Until Canadian citizens rights aren't bullied anymore immigration should be on hold...

BS There were huge backlogs long before COVID. Going back through multiple governments.

Oh well

I am not upset by this.

Keep them out!

Canada needs to halt immigration.

A silver lining.

Time to hand the sign up “sorry we’re closed”

Our immigration should be halted until COVID in beaten down

Lol so what

With the recent ied’s and machete killings I’d say it’s probably a good thing

They just walk through the border

Like there was no delays before ?

Hang up the sign “sorry we are closed” as we don’t need anymore!

Disheartening...same “news” as a few months ago


Let's just assume Covid is causing delays for everything 😅

There was a huge backlog long before COVID 19

Good news 👍

Boo hoo! Maybe a good thing?

Finally some good news.

With recent volumes of machete killings and ieds delays don’t seem so bad
