The evolution of the backlog since the start of the pandemic

The following table displays IRCC’s inventory growth since the start of the pandemic. CIC News has submitted a data request to IRCC on Canada’s temporary residence inventory as of April 2020. The table shows that over the past two years, the permanent residence inventory has grown from 410,000 people to 530,000 people. The temporary residence inventory has doubled since last April.
