Canada to fast process applications of Yolanda-hit Pinoys

As we know that super typhoon Yolanda (International name: Haiyan) has affected many areas of Philippines.

In regards to this, Canadian Citizenship and Immigration (CIC) Minister Chris Alexanda have announced that  they will be prioritizing the processing of applications on request from Filipinos who have been "significantly and personally" affected by the typhoon.

"Request from Filipino citizens temporarily in Canada who wish to extend their stay will be assessed in a compassionate and flexible manner," according to a notice posted on the website of the CIC.
