The immigration inventory comprises all applications, including those waiting for a decision, in backlog, and those within service standards.

IRCC is strengthening its workforce by hiring more employees to speed up the immigration process. There is a continuous review of the immigration processes to reduce steps and use of digital technology. IRCC extended the online application facility to minors below 18 for citizenship applications.
