My application was refused. Can I get a refund?
In most cases, no. Your application fees can’t be refunded once we start processing it. There are some exceptions. When an application is refused or withdrawn, we will refund:
- the right of permanent residence fee (RPRF)
- the right of citizenship fee
- the open work permit fee (for Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) exempt workers only)
- the employer compliance fee (refunded to the employer), and
- International Experience Canada (IEC) fees (See refunds for IEC).
