Processing times tell you how long it took Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to process applications in the past. They can vary, depending on how many applications CIC receives. Various factors can affect processing, including:
- the number of incomplete applications,
- seasonal variations in application intake,
- changes in CIC operations and
- other issues beyond CIC’s control.
Since the start-up visa is new and applications have not yet been received, processing times are still unavailable.
