On April 30, Canada will raise the fees for all permanent residence applications. Economic, permit holder, family, and humanitarian classes will all see fee rises. For the first time since 2002, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) increased permanent residence costs to account for inflation in 2020. IRCC declared at the time that it will raise costs every two years to keep up with inflation. All figures are in Canadian dollars.

In early July, Express Entry Canada announced that it would resume its Express Entry draws for Canadian Experience Class (CEC), Federal Skilled Worker (FSW), and Federal Skilled Trades (FST) candidates to assist fill over a million job vacancies across the country.

The great majority of new Express Entry applications will be processed within six months of their submission. According to the IRCC, Express Entry processing durations currently range from seven to more than twenty months.

Additionally, you may be required to pay the $500 right of permanent residency cost, which will increase to $515 on April 30. This can be paid at the same time as your application or after it has been approved. It is only given to persons who are granted permanent residency and is repaid if an immigration application is denied. It must, however, be paid before permanent resident status may be activated.


Applicants for PR

Those who apply for an open work permit while their PR application is being handled will receive permits good until the end of 2024. This will ensure that all permanent residence applications are completed before candidates must reapply for temporary status.

Applicants will no longer have to stay in Canada while their application is processed.

The immediate goal is to assist in family reunification.

The charge for obtaining a permanent residency permit does not apply to:

  • A major applicant’s or sponsor’s dependent children
  • Applications for sponsorship of adopted children
  • Applications for sponsorship of an orphaned sibling, sister, niece, nephew, or grandchild
  • protected persons, including applicants eligible on humanitarian and compassionate grounds and convention refugees.

The fees for permanent residency cards, travel documents for permanent residents, and certifications of replacement immigration documents are not expected to increase.

The government of Canada supports a cost-effective approach to financing government programs, where almost all the costs are borne by those that use the services, rather than by taxpayers.

Canadian immigration fees will increase in order to remain competitive with the fees charged by other immigrant-receiving countries. The cost of immigration to Canada is often lower than that of countries with similar immigration systems, such as Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, or the United States.

Applicants whose permanent residency application has been approved are required to pay the right of permanent residence fee. However, if a candidate pays the application fee and is then turned down, the fee will be refunded.
