Making changes after the application is submitted
Applicants should report any change of address or telephone number to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) (formerly Citizenship and Immigration Canada or CIC) right away. They can do this online or they can contact the Call Centre at 1-888-242-2100.
Applicants must also inform IRCC of any changes in family status, such as marriage, divorce, or the birth of a child. This has to be done in writing.
If an applicant gets married after they submit their application but before they are granted permanent residence, they can add their spouse to the application.
If an applicant’s child is born outside of Canada after the application is submitted, and the child’s mother is already included in the application, the child can be added to it as well.
