Effective February 6th, 2014, the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has implemented new application fees for both single and multiple-entry temporary resident visas (TRV’s), work permits, and study permits.

More Details

The following governmental fees will be adjusted for new and renewed permits:

  • Work Permit:
    • Previous Fee – $150 CAD
    • New Fee – $155 CAD
  • Single and Multi-Entry Temporary Resident Visas:
    • Previous Fee – $150 CAD
    • New Fee – $100 CAD
  • Study Permit:
    • Previous Fee – $125 CAD
    • New Fee – $150 CAD
  • Visitors seeking to extend their stay:
    • Previous Fee – $75 CAD
    • New Fee – $100 CAD

Other Changes

Applicants will no longer have to specifically request consideration for multiple-entry visas; rather, they will be automatically considered. Citizens of certain countries may also be required to obtain a work permit in addition to a TRV, as a TRV only grants entrance to Canada, but does not permit them to take up employment in Canada.
