The right of Permanent Residence Fee for principal applicants and accompanying spouses or common-law partners will rise from $515 to $575. Similarly, the fee for Federal Skilled Workers, Provincial Nominee Program, Quebec Skilled Workers, Atlantic Immigration Class, and most economic pilots (Rural, Agri-Food) will increase from $850 to $950 for principal applicants and accompanying spouse or common-law partner.
