- All protected persons, including children, applying as principal applicants for permanent residents must pay the $550 processing fee within180 days;
- This $550 fee is a significant and sometimes insurmountable barrier for many protected persons;
- In 1994 the CCR adopted a resolution condemning all cost-recovery fees for landing applications for refugees and their dependants;
Therefore be it resolved
That the CCR ask that the regulations be amended to waive the processing fee for all protected persons in Canada, consistent with the waiver of this fee for overseas protected persons.
