A Constant increase in IRCC's Applications Backlog

As of end of April 2022, the Immigration backlog has grown beyond 2.1 million across all immigration categories, as per the data obtained from the government. This is how the IRCC’s backlog has progresses since last summer:

  •  April 30-May 2, 2022: 2,130,385 applications
  • April 11-12, 2022: 2,031,589 applications
  • March 15 and 17, 2022: 1,844,424 applications
  • February 1, 2022: 1,815,628 applications
  • December 15, 2021: 1,813,144 applications
  • October 27, 2021: 1,792,404 applications
  • July 6, 2021: 1,447,474 applications

The application backlog continues to be a challenge to Canadian Immigration. In late January, Canadian Immigration Minister, Sean Fraser announced number of measures to tackle this situation. Those measures includes adopting new technology and hiring new staff. However, continuous increase in the application number raises a question mark on these measures.!
