All of Canada’s provincial and territorial immigration ministers are urging the Federal Government to speed up visa applications and increase provincial and territorial immigration allocations so that businesses in all parts of the country may hire more immigrants. As Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) worked to deal with a growing volume of applications that reached 2.62 million in mid-July, Canadian immigration ministers were demanding even more immigrants than are currently permitted under Canada’s record-breaking immigration levels strategy. The immigration ministers say this is needed to meet the country’s massive labour shortages.
