Are the fees the same for an adopted child for the permanent residence and citizenship processes?

No. The fees for permanent residence and citizenship applications differ. The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and the Citizenship Act also use different age ranges for their fees.

Permanent residence

A sponsorship fee and processing fee are required. If, when applying, the adopted person 19 years of age or over, the processing fee is higher. See the fees list for sponsorship and processing fees for permanent residence.


A separate processing fee is required. If, when applying, the adopted person is an adult (18 or older), the processing fee is higher and the right of citizenship fee is required. See the fees list for the processing and right of citizenship fees.
