COVID and Citizenship Delay and Backlog

Firm founder Raj Sharma was interviewed on CBC last week and asked to share his thoughts on citizenship delay and the backlog.

Immigration Officers have had to scramble this past year, and the near 20% increase in citizenship backlog was, to be honest, almost welcome news after a year of incredible frustration and delays in all other immigration business lines. That being said, there are a significant number of applicants that have been waiting well over a year or two and COVID is no excuse for such delay.

Individuals that have been waiting more than a year can seek the remedy of mandamus –the lawyers at SSH Law have extensive experience in assisting clients navigate the frustrating maze of unreasonable delay in their immigration and citizenship matters.
