IRCC expanded the use of automation technologies to process privately sponsored refugee applications

On December 16, 2022, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is advancing the processing of privately sponsored refugee applications through an innovative tool that utilizes automated technology. This advanced system will swiftly sort and process all incoming applications using rules developed with IRCC officers to assess potential bias or discrimination. All applications for refugee status are individually reviewed and considered by an IRCC officer. Only an immigration officer has the authority to reject or accept an application, while automated decision-making tools can only provide information but not make a refusal recommendation.
