Citizenship and Immigration committee  We have extended medicals in some cases. We look at these on a risk basis. The health and security of Canadians still remains our number one priority. I think, as Mr. Mills indicated, we look at these on a case-by-case basis now, where they have expired, and where we want to see

Citizenship and Immigration committee  I'm hoping it will be quicker. As you indicated, there are a number of cases where people have really put their lives on hold to be able to do this. We are anxious for them to be able to come and join others here in Canada and take their place in Canadian society. We are workin

Citizenship and Immigration committee  Private career colleges have asked us this question. It's an issue that we continue to look at pretty carefully with respect to a post-graduation work permit. There are a number of factors that I think we would consider. One is the integrity or the robustness of the program. Othe

Citizenship and Immigration committee  No, no, that's okay. It was the previous answer with respect to the confirmation of permanent residence. Not everybody whose confirmation of permanent residence has expired has an intention still to come to Canada. Although that might be hard to believe from the number of email

Citizenship and Immigration committee  Just to unpack that a little bit, if you have an expired COPR, your COPR was probably issued about a year ago. As long as it was issued before March 18, which would indeed be the case, then we've been going back. We've been contacting people. We've been looking at these. So far w

Citizenship and Immigration committee  I'm going to ask Mr. Mills to chime in on this one, too, but we're talking about a couple of different things here. First, if your application for permanent residence was approved prior to March 18, you're allowed to travel to Canada. When we finalize that application, we issue

Citizenship and Immigration committee  Thank you for the question. As a rule, it's important that biometrics are done and are used as something to confirm identity. It's important that this happens before people come to the country. We use this as a security feature. However, we understand well the frustrations, be

Citizenship and Immigration committee  I am not sure, but I think this is an Employment and Social Development Canada issue.

Citizenship and Immigration committee  Madam Chair, as the member has described.... We flipped it on its head. Now we're reaching out to contact people individually to ascertain whether or not they want to come, to issue the letters and to work through the problem that way. On this point, it may be frustrating that

Catrina Tapley

Citizenship and Immigration committee  I think it depends on a number of circumstances. One is that we tried to put a priority on processing for those who are here or who can land. If cases were approved before March 18, to have them come here on March 18, whether people are in Canada and are able to stay in Canada...
