Who is exempted by IRCC from the Canada PR visa fee hike?

IRCC in addition, to sharing the permanent residency fee hike shares about exemptions applicable to:

  • Firstly, dependent children and protected persons are exempt from paying the Right of Permanent Residence (RPR) Fee.
    • This includes the primary applicants and their accompanying family members.
  • Secondly, a sponsored child from the family reunification class who is under 22 years of age.
  • Also, applicants from the humanitarian and compassionate grounds and public policy cases.


In addition, IRCC says that applicants from the permit holder class applying for PR can not add family members to their PR applications. As a result, all accompanying family members will now have to separately apply for Canada PR like the principal applicant.

This is evident from all their efforts. Such as raising funds requirements for students and PR applicants. This is to make sure that immigrants can well handle their stay in Canada. Again we have a rise keeping in mind the rising costs of living in Canada.
