If I withdraw my application, will I get a refund?

In most cases, you can only get a refund if you withdraw your application before we start processing it.

If we have already start processing your application, we can only 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)

You can request a refund online. If we started processing your application, submit your withdrawal request using our web form.

After you submit a request, we will contact you if we need more information and to update you on the status of your request.
