IRCC expanding Sydney office

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada expanding Sydney office to reunite families and improve processing


March 5, 2021—Sydney, N.S.—In an effort to process more applications and reunite families faster, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada is expanding its Case Processing Centre in Sydney, Nova Scotia. This includes the addition of new office space and the hiring of 62 new employees.

The new space and additional staff will be primarily dedicated to family class overseas applications. These added resources will help IRCC process more applications and shorten processing times that have been extended during the pandemic.


Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, the Case Processing Centre in Sydney is currently limited to 30% occupancy. The opening of the new office space will significantly increase this capacity and will allow more employees who are currently working remotely to return to the office.


The 1-year lease for the additional space offers IRCC the flexibility to re-evaluate its needs in the years to come.


IRCC will always protect the health and safety of staff while serving Canadians and those who wish to come here.
