IRCC Strike alert
On April 19, 2023, many IRCC employees began a strike, as part of the Public Service Alliance of Canada's labour dispute with the Canadian government. This is having some effect on immigration applications, particularly those for permanent residents. New applications can still be submitted as usual, both online and by mail, but non-urgent applications will be delayed for the duration of the strike. Extensions of a stay in Canada can still be submitted, and maintained status remains as usual for those with applications still in processing.
