Canada witnessed a 15 percent increase under the family class visa. The Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney said “The actions taken by the government are helping more families reunite,” said Minister Kenney. “We have created additional avenues and flexibility, so that an increasing number of families can spend more time with each other.”


Canada has admitted around 65,000 permanent residents in 2012, which is 15 percent more than the people admitted in 2011. This also includes a 60 percent increase in the number of parents and grandparents admitted in Canada, this is the highest level reached in the last twenty years.

Minster Kenny said and we quote “The Action Plan for Faster Family Reunification has been a success. By reducing the backlog through increased admissions, we have dramatically reduced wait times so that parents and grandparents no longer have to wait close to a decade to be reunited with their loved ones.”

According to a Canadian immigration, by the end of 2013 the backlog for parent and grandparent visa will be reduced by 50 percent and the waiting time reduced to half.
