Rehabilitation of serious criminal offences - R309, A36(1)(b) or (c)

This section contains policy, procedures and guidance used by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada staff. It is posted on the Department’s website as a courtesy to stakeholders.

Processing and collection of fee: $1000

No fee exemptions have been identified for this service.

Fees shall be collected each time an application for determination of rehabilitation is initiated.

Temporary inability or refusal to pay

If an applicant advises that they are unable or unwilling to pay the fee immediately, they should be advised to return when they have the ability and willingness to do so. An application for determination of rehabilitation cannot be accepted and processing commenced unless the fee has been paid. This should be noted on the applicant's file. Officials should confirm their delegated authority before rendering a decision.

In Canada

The officer shall issue a receipt and note in the appropriate box of the Immigration Cost Recovery Control form (IMM 5194B) that the fee has been paid and the receipt number.

Visa offices abroad

At visa offices abroad, a receipt will be issued and the existing application form will be validated (IMM 0008EGEN, IMM 5257B, IMM 1294B or IMM 1295B).

Note: In such cases, the application form will be validated twice, once for the original application fee and once again for the Application for Determination of Criminal Rehabilitation fee.
