IRCC strike begins: Canada PR Application processing delays
IRCC employees are now officially on strike until government agrees to their demands.
However, temporary short-term hired employees will continue to work as usual. Temporary short-term employees were hired to clear the backlogs and are not part of any union.
These temporary employees mostly handle the temporary visa applications such as study visa, work visa, and visitor visa.
Treasury Board and CRA members are on strike effective tomorrow at 12:01 AM ET April 19.
