Unlock Your Pathway to Permanent Residency: Explore Temporary Public Policies Today

Attention applicants: The application submission period has now closed, effective November 5, 2021. If you have already submitted an application prior to the deadline, you may log in to view your submission.

Notice of Pathway Closure

The pathway from temporary residency to permanent residency has officially ended. To clarify, no new applications will be accepted. However, those who have submitted their applications prior to November 5, 2021, will still be evaluated accordingly.

How to Submit Your Application

Immigration Representatives: Legal representatives are allowed to offer guidance and advise their clients on the process of submitting a proper application for this immigration initiative. Nonetheless, note that representatives are not permitted to submit an application on behalf of a client or to log in to the online portal under the client's access. The client must use their unique log-in credentials and electronically confirm their submission through the online portal on their own.

The client must also formally acknowledge that they have read and understood all information regarding the application process. Additionally, the client's signature is a legal requirement to validate their intent to submit the application. Users with disabilities may request reasonable accommodations to facilitate this process, but such requests, accompanied by their required information, must be submitted timely to the IRCC.


Before submitting an application, candidates should carefully review the eligibility criteria for this program. An online resource outlining the necessary documentation and requirements can be found at www.canada.ca/immigration. Failing to meet the minimum standards may result in the rejection of one's application without reimbursement.


Prospective applicants must peruse the Instruction Guide (available at www.canada.ca/immigration-guide) for detailed instructions regarding the application process, fees, and how to officially submit the application.

Creating Your Account and Document Checklist

To proceed with your application, you must first create an account. The portal will ask several questions to provide you with a detailed checklist of all the documents needed. Once you complete the necessary forms, upload all the corresponding files to that portal.

Applicants with special needs as a result of a disability requiring specific accommodations must submit their requests to IRCC no later than May 20, 2021, or until all allocated spots are fully accounted for. Please contact the Client Support Centre by email or by phone to confirm your case.

When reaching out to the IRCC help desk, please include the following: your name, mailing address, phone number, stream you are applying for, the type of alternate format you require, whether you'd prefer to receive it by mail or email, and a statement that confirms it is due to a disability. Alternatively, applicants may call the Client Support Center at 1-888-242-2100 for additional assistance.

Download the Forms You Need

As the principal applicant, you will need to fill out the necessary forms which can be found here. If applicable, additional forms that you need to complete can also be accessed through this link. Before downloading and filling out the application forms, ensure that you have Adobe Reader 10 or higher and that you have turned on Javascript. In the event that you experience difficulty downloading the forms, right-click the link and select “Save target as…” or “Save link as…”. We recommend that you fill out all the forms on your computer rather than filling them out manually as this lessens the likelihood of delays caused by errors. Kindly note, however, that Schedule 3 must be filled out on your computer. After completing the forms, be sure to print, sign, and date them except for the Generic Application Form for Canada [IMM 0008]. Keep in mind that IMM 0008 is a barcode form. Be sure you validate it and submit all the pages.

Click the “Validate” button at the top or bottom of the form. For 2D barcode forms, you must always click the Validate button. If you are sure that you have provided all the information required, a new page with barcodes will appear at the end of the document. If you discover that you are missing information, the fields that need to be filled out will be highlighted in red, along with a description of what is missing. If you run into issues and a barcode page does not appear, find out how to fix the problem by clicking this link.

Get Ready to Submit

Remember that as you are applying online: do not print the 2D barcode form and do not use the “Signature Panel” button at the top of the application. After validating the form, save it on your computer in a location that you will remember and upload the form to the IMM 0008 space in the portal. You will need to enter your name and answer a security question. Note that this constitutes an electronic signature.

Give Your Biometrics

If you are between the ages of 14 and 79, you will need to provide your fingerprints and photo (biometrics) for every application for permanent residence that you submit. This applies even if you gave your biometrics in the past and they are valid. We will send you a letter notifying you when it is time to give your biometrics. To avoid delays, remember to pay the biometric fee when you submit your application. As soon as you receive the letter from us telling you to give biometrics, give them within 30 days from the letter’s date. COVID-19 has led to temporary changes in the biometrics requirements and collection procedures. Find out what to do for your biometrics by clicking this link.

Submit Your Application

Please be advised that the temporary resident to permanent resident pathway is now closed. Though you can still sign in to your account to view your application, we recommend that you avoid processing delays by submitting a complete application. The fees for individual applicants are CAD while families applying for permanent residence at the same time have a maximum total fee of CAD $170. Groups of 3 or more performing artists and their staff who apply for work permits at the same time have a maximum total fee of CAD $255. The last modified date for this information is February 9, 2023.
