New application deadline
If you receive an invitation to apply on or after June 29, 2021, you must submit your application for permanent residence within 60 days.
On June 29, 2021, the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) returned to the 60-day timeframe for a complete electronic application for permanent residence (e-APR). Applicants who received an invitation to apply (ITA) on or after June 29, 2021, must submit their application for permanent residence within 60 calendar days. ITA period for permanent residence was increased from 60 to 90 days at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, to provide applicants more time to prepare their applications, in response to the challenges they were facing in acquiring the necessary documentation.
