The length of time required to process an application regarding immigration and citizenship will vary depending on many factors including application volume, season and staffing issues. However, in nearly all cases, the process is quite involved and lengthy. Our office has been advised by Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Canada not to inquire about applications that are within normal processing times as we will not receive a response.
