Some persons applying in the independent class at the immigration offices in London, Hong Kong and New Delhi may have their applications randomly selected for processing at a new immigration office in Ottawa, Canada.
Persons whose applications will be assessed in Ottawa will be informed at the time the file is transferred. For straightforward cases that meet all requirements visas will be issued in Canada. More complex cases will be forwarded to the appropriate visa office overseas for interview or additional review.
This new application process designed to help Citizenship and Immigration Canada handle cases faster and more efficiently. The immigration criteria remain the same for persons processed in Canada and at offices abroad.

Frequently Asked Questions
Centralized Processing Pilot Project
Applicants and Sponsors
What is the Centralized Processing Pilot Project?
This is a small-scale test to see whether it would be more efficient to process routine family class and independent category immigrant applications from a central location in Canada rather than at Canadian missions abroad. Participation in the pilot will be limited to 7,000 family class applicants and 14,000 independent applicants from designated countries.
How long will the pilot project last?
The pilot began its first phase in July 2000 with the distribution of new joint sponsorship-application kits for family class applicants. The centralized processing phase will run from October 16, 2000 to June 2001. An evaluation of the pilot should be ready by October 2001.
Whose applications will be processed under the pilot project?
Family class applicants living in the following countries or territories will be participating in the project:
Applicants in the independent will be chosen for participation in the project on a random basis by the following Canadian immigration offices:
Hong Kong London New Delhi
Why has CIC singled out some countries for this test and not others?
We tried to choose countries that would make up the best representative sample of Canada's current immigration movement. The countries chosen for this test will generate enough cases to allow us to gather meaningful data in a relatively short time.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
