Conclusion

Since the year 2002, the IRCC has not increased their fees because the government of Canada believes in a cost-effective approach and provides financial aid to government programs but in the last 18 years, the cost of Canada Permanent Residency operation and the process has increased a lot. As a result, on April 30, 2020, Canada Immigration has made this announcement that to manage the increasing programs and servicing costs the IRCC is increasing the Permanent Residency fees for most of the economic immigration programs, only the caregiver program has been put out of the list. However, Canada’s visa fees are considerably low than the countries like Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
