reducing Canada's immigration backlogs and wait times /

Begins with a history of how immigration application backlogs formed and how immigration is managed in Canada through the annual Immigration Levels Plan. It then turns to recent initiatives to address application backlogs, notably the Action Plan for Faster Immigration, implemented in 2008, and the Government’s recent announcement of the Action Plan for Faster Family Reunification. Witness testimony and the Committee’s recommendations are grouped according to immigration programs, including Federal Skilled Workers, federal investor immigrants, and parent and grandparent family class sponsorship.
