Key Highlights 2017 Immigration Levels Plan
The Government of Canada is maintaining its commitment to a strong immigration program and will welcome 300,000 immigrants in 2017.

Immigration plays an important role in keeping Canada competitive in a global economy. It helps offset the impacts of an aging population and the fact that the number of people in Canada’s labour force will soon be in decline. In fact, immigration will soon account for all net labour force growth as the number of retirements outpaces the number of Canadian youth joining the labour market. For these reasons, the Government has established 300,000 as a new baseline for permanent resident admissions with the majority of these selected as economic immigrants.

Within this plan, the number of permanent residents selected in economic programs will increase. Though planned admissions of resettled refugees will decrease when compared to the extraordinary target in 2016, they will continue to remain among the highest in Canada’s history and will be more than double the target in 2015. Maintaining the Government’s commitment to family reunification, the 2017 plan also sees an increase to family class levels, which will help to reduce processing times and reunite more families.

Overall, the plan balances high immigration levels with improvements to the immigration system, including reducing backlogs.

The approach to the 2017 levels plan was guided by feedback from Canadians gathered over the summer months and from provinces and territories.

Hi gyz,

I just got an e-mail from Singapore asked me to send Police clearance Certificate of UK and India as i was in London and India for about 4 yrs in each Country.I have submitted BD PCC with the application.
However, I already have the other two PCC from each country with me.

So my question here:

> Postal address of Singapore to send my PCC ?
> Should i include any additional paper to write my CASE Details (Sponsor & Sponsored person name, Case number, UCI etc.) or Can i just mention it on the envelop of my parcel ?
> How soon do they start processing after getting the required DOC they are asking for ?

Thanks in advance and i really apprecialte if u gyz cud help me with the above questions in details.

Best of luck everybody and looking forward to see loads of good news.

Yup.

Amazing part it was approved in 52 hours.
I filed online visitor on 19th Oct 10.20 PM EST. The approval letter came on 22 OCT 2 Am EST.
She deposited passport on MOnday and was sent back on Friday.

Considering this, I strongly believe your PR's eligibility has a strong influence on visitor visas
Hello, I am sharing my experience about the TRV, as I was applied for TRV on September 27th and I didnt get any update on TRV for almost 2 weeks. However, I got my PR approval on October 7th. and two days after, on October 10th, I received an email from Chandigrah VO (CHADGIMMIGRATION@international.gc.ca) which i am sharing here below:

"Dear Applicant,

Kindly be advised that since your permanent resident application of Canada under spousal category has been approved.

Please give your in principal approval to withdraw your temporary resident visa application No. VXXXXXXXXXX by replying to this e-mail.


Sincerely,

Immigration Section"
****
I think TRV VO always check our PR application status with NDVO and make decision accordingly. Thanks/

Congrats, wow thats awesome that your have received the PPR approval in time and yes when u fill out the form for TRV you have to mention your UCI and then they are linked internally (i assume) and its nice that they checked.

Congrats once again and all the best

Hope this helps in your quest;

1. General: Singapore-im-enquiry@international.gc.ca, all i could find is the email address and no postal address, call CIC on 1-888-242-2100 to get that specific info.

2. Yes its best to attach a post it note on the all individual documents with the UCI number, application number and if it belongs to the PA then his or her first and last name. Pin them or staple them together if possible and yes also make sure that the same information is mentioned on the envelopes also. Here redundancy is good.

3. That's a million dollar question, no one knows but we can only speculate that if and when they receive it they will add those documents to the original file and proceed from that point onwards.

Good luck.

Yes, i just saw...so I know I am strictly following you now :p
Hopefully if all goes well, will get my visa after yours.
You have mentioned File Transfer: in AUg What does that means?
Yes, we have a very similar timeline and we will get Visas in a few days difference one after the other as soon as they start working on it.
File transfer in Aug means file was transferred over to NDVO for further work to be done.

And i also have a question that are you able to link your application on the GC account?
