On November 30, 2022, Sean Fraser, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), announced plans for Canada’s growth and prosperity under the Indo-Pacific Strategy. An investment of $74.6 million over five years and $15.7 million ongoing will improve Canada’s application processing ability domestically and in the Indo-Pacific region, which New Delhi, Chandigarh, Islamabad and Manila are all a part of. These new resources aim to bring more people to Canada faster, whether for a visit, study, work, or immigration purposes. With this addition, we can expect quicker processing times and a higher volume of visa applications from the region. Consequently, this will contribute to improved processing times and support people-to-people ties.
