Will I get a refund if I withdraw my sponsorship application?

It depends on where the application is in the process.

  • If we did not start the sponsor’s application: You will get all fees back.
  • If we started the sponsor’s application: You will not get the C$75 sponsorship fee back. You will get all other fees back.
  • If we finished processing the sponsor’s application, but did not start processing the permanent residence application for the sponsored person: You will not get the C$75 sponsorship fee back. You will get all other fees back.
  • If we finished processing the sponsor’s application and started the permanent residence application for the sponsored person: You will get the Right of Permanent Residence Fee (C$490 per person) back, if applicable.
  • If your application was refused: You will not get any fees back.
