Processing times for the Federal Self-Employed Class program 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.
These processing times only apply to the federal part of the processing. It does not include the time it takes for the province of Quebec to process the Certificat de Sélection du Québec (CSQ).
|Program||Processing Times in months|
(based on a complete application package)
|Federal Self-Employed Class||94|
