According to an internal IRCC document, that became available to the public, Chinese couples experience the highest rejection rate. According to the report, spousal immigration applications of Chinese citizens who marry Canadian citizens experience a rejection rate of 12% for 2020. Most notably, spousal immigration where a Chinese woman marries a Canadian man has the highest success rate for approval. Whereas Chinese men marrying a Canadian wife are usually rejected by IRCC. IRCC spokesperson, Shannon Ker, said that the high refusal rate for Chinese spousal immigration applicants is based on three factors. Firstly, the foreign spouse does not have a legal identity when they are presenting documents within Canada. Secondly, the sponsor was not the prospective immigrants’ spouse or partner. Lastly, the intention of the marriage was not genuine.
