The application process for parents and grandparents sponsorship for permanent residence changed in 2017. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) randomly selected 10,000 individuals who expressed interest to sponsor. Selected candidates received invitation to apply from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. Once parents and grandparents obtain permanent resident status under this program, they will have access to publically funded healthcare providers and hospitals, right to work and even buy a house. Sponsor will have to meet the necessary income requirement that the Canadian government determines each year + 30%, and can get the help of a co-signer with financial resources. Sponsors will have to prove that they meet the minimum income requirements by submitting notices of assessment issued by the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) in support of their application.
PGP Sponsorship Requirements
The Government of Canada introduced two programs, which allow Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their parents and grandparents
- Live in Canada up to 2 years as a temporary resident, or
- Live in Canada as a Canadian permanent resident.
The Super Visa Program allows parents and grandparents to come to Canada as long-term visitors. Thus successful applicants will not be required to renew their visitor visa every six months, as they will be granted a multi-entry visitor visa valid for two years at a time with expiry date up to 10 years.
