Coronavirus and Canada immigration 2020: What you need to know
One of Canada's major measures has been to implement travel restrictions between March 18 and June 30, however Canada is still exempting certain permanent and temporary residents from the restrictions so that they can enter the country.
Can I still submit an Express Entry profile and my permanent residence application?
Yes, to both questions.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) continues to hold Express Entry draws.
IRCC just held a draw last week and invited 668 Express Entry candidates to apply for permanent residence.
In addition, provinces continue to hold draws as well through the Provincial Nominee Program.
IRCC is still processing permanent residence applications. It is processing completed applications as per its normal procedures and providing individuals who are unable to submit completed applications with an additional 90 days if such individuals have experienced delays obtaining documents due to coronavirus-related disruptions.
