Following the soft launch and initial testing of the minimal viable product for clients only in March 2021, the PR Online Application Portal will be available to authorized representatives by September 2021.
Representatives will be able to use the PR Online Application Portal to manage online applications from a single account for multiple clients for permanent residence application streams, which have been paper-based. Paper applications will remain available for those who need an accommodation. The PR Online Application Portal will not be connected to the Authorized Paid Representative Portal.
To create a PR Online Application Portal account, representatives will need to provide information, including their membership ID number, business address and name, and they will need to upload a valid copy of an identity document (a valid passport, driver’s license or permanent residence card).
