Hon. Sean Fraser, Minister for Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, remarked that Canada commits itself to reinforce the immigration system by embracing digital technology. The shift to the online application system for Permanent Residence applications will help speed up the processing, besides simplifying the application procedures. The new permanent residents and citizens deserve faster and better immigration services.
