2017 Sponsorship Cost Table and Form Changes

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has updated the Sponsorship Cost Table. These updates are now live in the following guide:

Refugee Sponsorship Application Guide [IMM 5413] 

Appendix A: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/guides/5413ETOC.asp#appa.

The following forms for Groups of Five and Community Sponsors have been changed to reflect the updated Sponsorship Cost Table amounts:

  1. Settlement Plan — Group of Five [IMM 5373A] (PDF, 1.21 MB)
  2. Settlement Plan and Financial Assessment — Community Sponsors [IMM 5515] (PDF, 1.45 MB)

The 2017 Sponsorship Cost Table and In-Kind Deduction Table amounts were slightly increased due to the addition of a housing supplement of $75/month for single individuals and $100/month for families (amounting to $900 or $1200 extra annually).

Please be advised that there will be a short grace period until May 1st, 2017. Any applications received by IRCC as of May 1st, 2017 must have the new form version for the IMM5373A/IMM5515 and will be assessed using the updated Sponsorship Cost Table amounts. Old forms versions will not be accepted after April 30th, 2017.
