Since June 19, 2017, minors can apply for a grant of citizenship on their own behalf. On February 14, 2018, the Government of Canada announced changes to the fee schedule to lower the processing fees for minors applying for Canadian Citizenship bringing them from $530 to $100. Minors who applied on or after June 19, 2017, and paid the $530 application fee will be refunded $430.
