Principal applicant under the Humanitarian and Compassionate consideration and public policy cases.

IRCC further classified that “Permit Holders” category candidates are not eligible to include family members as part of their Canada PR applications. Instead, all candidates who are eligible under this category must submit their own Canada PR applications.
