We discussed fundamental reasons related to the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Overall, how Canada is making efforts to improve various immigration-related services

And they approved it.
We also announced our future plans, and it includes the following. First, until the end of the fall, maximum

That's what they say. Second, we have completed the modernization of Canadian immigration system operations to enable rational processing
It is scheduled, and thirdly, as of August 22, we will take measures to bring in more than 300,000 new permanent residents.
Fourth, introducing a new system to track applications for citizenship and some permanent residency applicants, in real time
We will be able to check the status of the process, and we will expand it to more applicants next year
And finally, I'm going to go to the Immigration Department website and I'm going to tell you everything that's going on
I informed you that I will post the data.

You have processed the dog's application. 2.4 million documents are currently under review, up from 2.7 million in July
That's a decrease. In addition, 1.1 million immigration applications are currently available in standard time, and 1.3 million
It's called a backlog.
In addition, through the Minister of Family Affairs Karina Gould, she also mentioned improving the speed of handling Canadian passports.
If we look at the improvements, we will increase the speed of our work by increasing the number of service Canadian personnel, and we will be able to use our passports for the past 15 years
