Jobs in Immigration Centre at Sydney!

Dozens of workers have been reassigned to run the immigration applications backlog at the immigration and citizenship processing centre situated in business district Sydney. These applications are up till now to receive an authorization.

Approximately 160 of the staff members most of them facing a suspend have received a comprehensive contract for a period of 7 months. This has been done so that these workers could help in catering to more files and in turn reduce the period for waiting.

Alterations brought about in the Immigration Act of Canada involve permitting children of Canadians but were born outside the nation to apply for citizenship. These amends are being made accountable for the steady rise in the figure of applications which were brought about in 2009.

In accordance with Mark Eyking, the Liberal MP from Sydney-Victoria, the centralized government has to address the awaiting backlog by engaging contract workers and making their positions everlasting. More resources are required particularly when the processing timelines range among 15 to 19 months for the applications to be finalized. The obvious solution is nothing more than putting a hold on the yearly cycle of the layoffs and hiring’s that happen at the centre. In case, additional jobs are made to be permanent, the backlog would just reduce.

As of now, approx 250 people are working by the centre. It caters to permanent residency cards in addition to application for the Federal Skilled Worker program. Immigration being one of the main issues and an significant aspect to be catered to at all times, it is high time the issue is addressed previous to the situation of backlog goes unmanageable.
