Greater efficiency through digitization
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is aiming at the development of an advanced digital platform. The Digital Platform Modernization initiative will help Canada address the ever-growing demand across diverse service categories of IRCC. The following are the objectives of developing a modern platform:
- Better processing standards to minimize wait times
- Designing user-friendly applications
- Adopting a human-centric approach for better communication
- Eradicating barriers to entry of refugees
- Fraud prevention by improving partnerships with educational institutions and employers
Immigration as a solution to address the labor shortage
Canada relies on skilled immigration to meet the labor market demands and provides attractive pathways to bring immigrants from the working age groups. Aligning immigration programs that support these needs is crucial for ensuring a healthier economy. Canada welcomes new immigrants as they help improve communities and boost the country’s GDP. Immigrants perceive Canada as a suitable destination for a better life.
