Canada announces New Immigration Fees for 2022

 

Fees in Canada are typically less expensive than in other countries with similar immigration systems, such as Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

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

The fee hike will apply to economic, permit holder, family and humanitarian classes.

For the first time since 2002, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) increased permanent residence fees to reflect inflation in 2020. IRCC announced that fees would be increased every two years to keep pace with inflation. All amounts are in CAD.

In addition to these application fees, you may also have to pay a $500 right of permanent residence fee. Application fees can be paid at the same time as your application, or when your application is approved. If an application for permanent residence is declined, the fee is refunded to the applicant. In order for permanent residency status to be activated, however, it must be paid.

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.
