IRCC expanding Sydney office to reunite families and improve processing

SYDNEY. – Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is expanding its Case Processing Centre in Sydney, Nova Scotia in an effort to process more applications and reunite families faster. This expansion includes the addition of new office space and the hiring of 62 new employees.

According to a news release published on the Government of Canada’s website on March 5 the new space and additional staff will be primarily dedicated to family class overseas applications. These added resources will help IRCC process more applications and shorten processing times that have been extended during the pandemic.

It is further stated in the news release that due to restrictions related to COVID-19, the Case Processing Centre in Sydney is currently limited to 30% occupancy. The opening of the new office space will significantly increase this capacity and will allow more employees who are currently working remotely to return to the office.

The 1-year lease for the additional space offers IRCC the flexibility to re-evaluate its needs in the years to come.

IRCC will always protect the health and safety of staff while serving Canadians and those who wish to come here.

List of hotels for your three day mandatory quarantine

List of hotels for your three day mandatory quarantine

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on January 29 that all travellers entering Canada by air would have to quarantine in a hotel for three days at their own expense. This mandatory stay in a government-authorized hotel will come into effect on February 22.

The price was estimated to be more than $2000 but it seems to be less than what was estimated.

According to an article published by National Post nightly rates at the Alt Hotel Toronto Airport and the Sheraton Gateway Hotel at Toronto Pearson International Airport, two of the hotels named Friday as participants in the government quarantine program, start at $339 and $319, respectively, for a single person being quarantined, employees answering the phone at those hotels said.

“The hotels are doing the billing directly and different hotels will have different rates,” Health Minister Patty Hajdu said Friday. “The hotels are setting the price based on their own deliberations on their own expenses.”

Here is the list of government-authorized hotels:

Toronto:

  • Alt Hotel Pearson Airport
  • Four Points by Sheraton and Element Toronto Airport
  • Holiday Inn Toronto International Airport
  • Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Toronto International Airport

Montreal:

  • Aloft Montreal Airport
  • Crowne Plaza Montreal Airport
  • Holiday Inn Express and
