Canada announces new immigration fees for 2022

Canadian Economy

Canada is increasing fees for all permanent residence applications on April 30, 2022.

In 2020, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) increased permanent residence fees to account for inflation for the first time since 2002. At that time, IRCC announced it would increase fees every two years to adjust for inflation.

On top of these application fees, you may also have to pay the $500 right of permanent residence fee, which will go up to $515 on April 30. This can be paid at the same time as the application, or when your application is approved. It is reserved only for people who get approved for permanent residence and is refunded if an immigration application gets declined. However, it must be paid in order for permanent residency status to be activated.

The right of permanent residence fee does not apply to:

  • the dependent children of a principal applicant or sponsor,
  • sponsorship applications for adopted children,
  • sponsorship applications for an orphaned brother, sister, niece, nephew or grandchild, or
  • protected persons, including applicants eligible on humanitarian and compassionate grounds and convention refugees.

The fees for permanent resident cards, permanent resident travel documents and certification or replacement immigration documents will not increase.

Canada supports a cost-effective approach to financing government programs, where most of the costs are covered by those who receive the services and not taxpayers.
