Abstract:

"The report begins with an overview of the TRVs [Temporary Resident Visas] for visitors system which sets out the key legislated and regulatory elements, describes the visa process, and identifies the various types of TRVs for visitors that can be obtained by a foreign national wishing to visit Canada, including options available for short-term study or work. The overview includes a brief analysis of the trends and characteristics of visa applications received by visa posts abroad, including a regional comparison of approval rates, processing times, and immigration violations. The next section summarizes the testimony and submissions received by the Committee on the current state of the TRVs for visitors system in Canada, with a focus on the integrity of the system, and develops related recommendations to the government. Most notably, the report identifies issues related to application assessment and the fraud monitoring process, and notes various concerns about visa officers' decision-making and communication processes. This section also describes how the current system affects tourism in Canada. The subsequent section discusses testimony received, and develops recommendations regarding the effectiveness and affordability of introducing an appeal mechanism. Finally, the report provides an overview of the TRVs for visitors systems in peer countries"--
