Beginning in January 015, Canada has incorporated all federal skilled immigrants into the fast-track system. The difference between this system and the previous immigration system is that applicants need to be advanced in the pool to express their immigration intentions, and their scores reach the invitation line. Then submit a formal immigration application. Except for paper-based provincial nomination, reunion immigrants, nursing immigrants, refugees, etc., all other applications are merged into the fast-track system.
Fast-track applications are all submitted electronically and online, and all materials only need to be scanned (unless specially requested by the visa officer).
Most of the annual quota for Canadian immigrants is given to fast-track, and most of the fast-track applications will be processed within half a year.
