Canada’s Immigration policy will be undergoing changes that will supposedly make it easier for families to reunite and come to the country.

In 2016, the Candian government introduced Immigration lottery for giving out family class visas.
It allowed individuals to apply online and later, be randomly selected to apply for visas by lottery.
However, the process is now ending with the new system being launched. The lottery system is being abolished and family visas will be determined based on first come first serve basis.
