3.10.28 - “A re-elected Liberal government will […] [i]ntroduce electronic applications for family reunification”
« Afin de moderniser le processus d’obtention de la citoyenneté canadienne, le gouvernement fédéral a récemment lancé de nouveaux services en ligne, lesquelles comprennent la possibilité de présenter des demandes par voie électronique. Cependant, les dispositions législatives actuelles limitent la capacité du gouvernement de moderniser le processus de demande de citoyenneté au moyen du numérique, ce qui signifie que le traitement prend plus de temps et que les outils en ligne sont limités. »
There is an online application process for family reunification named Permanent Residence Online Application Portal.
“In March 2021, the Department launched the Permanent Residence Online Application Portal to enable some applicants and representatives to submit applications electronically for the first time. Applications for 20 paper-based lines of business, including the majority of Family Class categories, are now being accepted through the Portal. Since June 2021, IRCC has been conducting all virtual landings for clients that are in Canada through the Portal. Through the Portal, clients are able to declare their physical presence in Canada, submit their mailing address and photo which will be used to print the permanent resident card, confirm their permanent resident status and obtain their Confirmation of Permanent Residence document”
The Government of Canada has announced the launch of a new online application process that will be available to applicants for permanent residence in the Spouse, Common-Law Partner and Dependent Children classes.
“The Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, today announced the launch of a new digital case status tracker that will allow some family class permanent residence applicants, sponsors and their representatives to more easily check their application status online. This builds on the Government of Canada’s recent announcement on modernizing Canada’s immigration system to support economic recovery and improve client experience”
