Hello, This comment system leads to the team responsible for transparency and accountability work in the public service. We host datasets and records about many things, including historic statistics on immigration and visa applications, but we do not deal with these services directly. You can go to the following website to contact the government about immigration: Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada: I hope this helps. Warmest Regards, Jeremy , from the Open Government team
