    But the federal government has recently announced a new program to expedite 90,000 immigration applications for essential workers as part of its goal to bring in 1.2 million immigrants in the next 3 years.

    Experts say there will be a surge of immigration to Canada as the world recovers from the coronavirus pandemic, but as Mike Drolet reports, the application processing might take months or years to clear.
