Canadian Permanent residence application fees to increase from April 30, 2024

Dear future neighbour,

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced that there will be an increment to permanent residency application fees with effect from April 30, 2024. The department said this change is being introduced according to Canada’s Immigrant and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR).

See below the changes made to PR application fees:

IRCC notes that, in addition to dependent children and protected persons (including principal applicants and all accompanying family members), the following groups of applicants are exempt from paying the department’s Right of Permanent Residence (RPR) Fee:

  • Sponsored child (of a principal applicant under the family reunification class) – the child must be under 22 years old and not have a spouse/partner
  • Principal applicants under the humanitarian and compassionate consideration and public policy classes

This fee is normally paid by all permanent residence applicants (except for dependent children and protected persons). Principal applicants in the “humanitarian and compassionate consideration” and “public policy” categories are only exempt from the RPR fee under certain circumstances.

IRCC also clarifies that “permit holder” class permanent residence applicants are not eligible to include accompanying family members as part of their PR applications. Instead, all individuals eligible for PR through this class must submit their own applications for Canadian PR as a principal applicant.
