An official document from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada stated that Canada will grant citizenship to 300,000 people this year.
Canada will process a total of 285,000 decisions and 300,000 new citizens by March 31, 2023, CIC news reported quoting the memo.
The citizenship target implies that 300,000 approved applicants must take the oath of citizenship, either in person or virtually, the report added.
This marks a significant increase over the last year and even increases the pre-Covid pandemic targets of 2019-2020 when 253,000 citizenship applications were processed by Canada.
