How do I make sure that my application is not delayed or returned?

To avoid a refusal or delays, make sure that you:

  • properly fill out and sign all the application form(s),
  • include all documents listed on the Document Checklist,
  • pay your fees and include your receipt with your application, and
  • pay the right of permanent residence fee of C$515 upfront, or as soon as you get a letter asking you to do so.

After you apply:

  • Depending on your application type, you can link your paper application to your online account. This way, you can get up-to-date information about your application status. See which application types you link.
  • Keep your contact information up to date. If we need more information, we will contact you.
  • Use this Web form to report changes, such as births, marriages, or changes in employment.
  • If we need more information or documents from you, answer quickly and follow the instructions we give you.
