Processing times for the Provincial Nominee Programs were previously shown by individual visa office.
However, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has a new way of processing applications meaning waiting times are no longer country or visa office-specific.
Instead, applications can be processed by any of the visa offices in Canada’s global network.
Therefore, IRCC publishes one global processing time, depending on when the application was submitted.
