Fees and procedures

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by IRCC staff. It is posted on the department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) charges fees to partially recover the cost of providing some services to the public. The fees are based on an international precedent and the concept that persons specifically requesting a service should pay for that service.

Fee levels are set to recover as much of the costs of each service as reasonable without imposing undue hardship or affecting access to service.

The fee for any service will not exceed the average documented global cost of providing that service.
