These processing times are intended to provide updated weekly processing times for 80% of the applications in a category based on data collected over the past 6 months.
This does not imply that your application will be processed in the same amount of time. Given that this processing update is an average of the processing times for 80% of the applications, it could take more or less time than indicated.

Furthermore, the processing period begins when IRCC receives the application and ends when the immigration officer decides whether to approve or deny the application.

We’ve been tracking and comparing the processing timelines that the IRCC formally updates every week.
