Visitor Visa - New IRCC Portal

IRCC has released a new visa portal. At the moment the applications accepted through this portal are limited to Visitor Visas for applicants meeting certain eligibility criteria. However, in the future, it is very likely that majority of temporary resident applications such as study permits, work permits, etc. go through this portal in the future.
