It has been several months since the pandemic took over the world and significantly affected our lives. Everything came to a halt—businesses closed, people were forced to remain indoors, and the roads became deserted, with only a few people walking or driving by only to carry out essential services.
With no cure yet and the virus continuing to spread, it is too early to say that these dark times are behind us. Despite this, the business world in Canada is slowly re-emerging. Now, at least in terms of the economy, the country seems to be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
As the business world opens up, Canadians must expect immigration activities to resume. Despite delays and other immigration departments far from fully operational, the slow rise of the business world is a powerful indicator that things are about to re-start in the world of immigration.
The Slow Rise
Soon enough, Canadians and immigrants will see and feel the benefits of agencies such as Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), and the like. Work in these departments must resume as fully as possible, for the sake of essential workers and immigrants. Processing of Canadian applications must be fully operational as well to avoid any backlogs that can set agencies back, which would be detrimental to their overall operations.
Of course, expect that there will be adjustments with the delivery of services, as the staff will need to be more careful to ensure that the systems are balanced and to preserve their integrity. Immigration agencies are also aware of potentially high-fraud cases in the future, as some individuals may attempt to take advantage of post-pandemic operations. Nonetheless, the immigration staff and officers are making all the necessary adjustments, rules, and protocols to prevent this from happening.
Expect temporary changes to become permanent ones, serving as an extra precaution should an outbreak like this occur again.
Operational but Limited…for Now
Currently, immigration is already handling an influx of questions about the current circumstances, along with how the agency will process after the global pandemic. One thing’s for sure, fully resuming work will be challenging, which is why staff members are doing their best to complete as much work as possible now. Fortunately, this is less difficult than initially thought, thanks to the convenience that technology brings.
Canadians who have immigration concerns are encouraged to reach out to the Canadian Immigration.
Do not fret, as Canadian Immigration is planning to be fully operational in the near future. Businesses are slowly re-opening, which is once again bringing life to Canadian businesses, and subsequently, the national economy. Eventually, immigration-related activities will rise and Canadian Immigration is preparing to tackle them as efficiently and as carefully as possible while a cure for the COVID-19 is still in the works.
This current circumstance shows that despite the pandemic, Canada’s “new normal” is on the rise, and soon enough, Canada will once again be welcoming immigrants from all over the world who want to work, study, or live in the country.
