Impact of the pandemic on Canadian immigration

Canada’s immigration minister appeared before the Standing Committee as part of a study on the affect coronavirus has had on Canada’s immigration system.
Marco Mendicino attended the November 25 meeting along with the Deputy Minister for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), Catrina Tapley. They answered questions from members of parliament on the Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration with the help of other IRCC officials.
Mendicino is an elected politician who serves with the Liberal Party of Canada. He is responsible for implementing the government’s mandate at the department of IRCC.
Tapley manages IRCC’s departmental operations. Like her colleagues from IRCC who also joined the meeting, she is a public servant and not a politician.
The meeting was the sixth of eight sessions, where the immigration committee is hearing testimonials on how the pandemic has affected Canadian immigration. The minister is also scheduled to appear Wednesday, December 2 at 3:30 p.m. EST.
