Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada Client Support Centre services

We’re experiencing technical issues right now.

The web form isn’t working for some users. We’re looking into the issue and will fix it as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, we can’t

  • process applications normally
  • give accurate processing times for most applications

If you’ve already applied, find out how to check your application status and how we’re processing applications during the pandemic—updated weekly.

Our agents do not have access to more information about your case status or processing time, and it may take us more than 5 business days to respond to non-urgent requests. If you need help quickly, check our Help Centre.

Still haven’t found what you’re looking for?
