According to the official website of the Canadian Immigration Agency, some visa application centers (VAC) around the world have begun to provide limited services to applicants. This means that applicants in these places can complete the submission of biometric information (biometrics), which helps them apply for visitor visas, work and study visas, etc.
The following is the VAC that currently provides limited services:
Australia: Melbourne, Sydney
China: Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Jinan, Kunming, Nanjing, Shanghai, Shenyang
France: Lyon, Paris

The immigration office said they are taking measures to help the health and safety of employees and people who use VAC. Keeping distance and hand hygiene at the core of the job, the number of people allowed in the VAC may be limited, and workers will often clean the VAC. They will also use gloves, masks and face masks. Both staff and visitors may be subject to temperature checks.
The Immigration Department also reminded that travel restrictions are still in effect, and for most foreign citizens, Canada’s travel restrictions continue until June 30. At present, immediate family members of Canadians and holders of work permits who will provide necessary services in the country, as well as students who have obtained a student visa before March 18, are not subject to travel restrictions.
Other non-residents of Canada must prove the necessary reasons for their coming to Canada.
In addition, all travelers traveling to Canada must be quarantined for 14 days after arrival and be able to prove to Canadian Border Service Agency (CBSA) officials that they have established a sufficient quarantine plan.
