Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Reduces In-Canada Permit Processing Time

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has significantly reduced their processing times for In-Canada permit applications.  For example, fall 2011 processing time for a mailed in work permit application took approximately 3 months.  Now they are being turned around in less than a month.  This means that if you mailed in your application in December 2011 you will have or will be receiving a response very soon.  The updated posted processing times for all In-Canada permits can be found here : http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/times/temp.asp
