Summary Translation: Career Engine - Immigration Canada has recently announced on its official website that apart from the Wuhan visa centre, 11 Chinese visa centres in Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Jinan, Kunming, Nanjing, Shanghai and Shenyang will resume operations. Applicants can complete applications for study visas, work visas, travel visas and permanent residency. On June 8, China implemented a policy allowing airlines to fly to China. Permitted airlines include Air Canada, but no aircraft were seen in China from the airline. Currently, the only Canadian airline that can fly directly to China is Air Canada. If there are no flights in operation, then what is the purpose of reopening the visa centres? The author did a quick search on flights from Canada to China on Air Canada’s website, but found nothing available. The author also found that Chinese media are not optimistic about the full restoration of China-Canada routes and China-Canada relations. Statistics showed that Canada's exports to China amounted to $24.4 billion in 2019, a drop of up to 16% compared to 2018. The data for 2020 has not yet been released, but the author can imagine how bad it might be. The Chinese media pointed out that the United States is the source of uncertainty in China and Canada. But Canada clearly cannot balance the relationship between the world’s largest economy and the world’s second largest economy. Canada still chooses the United States as their first choice. This imbalance is destined to be reflected in details such as the resumption of the China-Canada flight route. The author was optimistic about the full restoration of China-Canada flights half a month ago, but now it seems like their prediction was wrong.
