congrats molo! mines not yet bec if you live in quebec we still have one more process to PR thats is the CSQ cert of selection du quebec. Another 395$ each. Plus 490 RPRF. duh!
When do you think they will ask you to pay for that and how to pay it?
I did more googling in your queries..
What is the right of permanent residence fee?
The right of permanent residence fee (RPRF) covers the right to obtain
permanent resident status in Canada. The government charges this fee
because permanent resident status gives people many benefits and privileges.
Each applicant for permanent resident status, whether at a post abroad or in
Canada, must pay a $975 fee. Exceptions include dependent children and
refugees, and persons in similar circumstances and other protected persons.
The Immigrant Loans Program provides loans to pay the fee for persons who
truly need help, if they can show they will be able to repay the money.
Applicants may pay the RPRF any time before the permanent resident visa is
issued. They can get the fee back if they do not become permanent residents.
