Forms related to permanent residence

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.

This page currently includes only information about some economic and non-economic classes and the permanent resident card and status. This page will change as the rest of the permanent residence manual chapters are modernized. In the meantime, consult relevant IP and OP manual chapters for information about other permanent resident programs.

Forms related to Express Entry
