Canada Reopens Parents and Grandparents Program

To further our goals of reuniting families in Canada, the parent and grandparent sponsorship program (PGP) allows eligible candidates the chance to apply to sponsor their parents or grandparents for permanent residence in Canada.

Starting on October 10th, 2023, IRCC began sending invitations to apply to 24,200 potential sponsors who have already submitted their expressions of interest (Interest to Sponsor form) in 2020 but have yet to receive an invitation to apply in either 2021 or 2022.

If this sounds like your situation, be sure to check the email you provided in your 2020 Interest to Sponsor form in case you received an Invitation to Apply (ITA). IRCC will continue sending these emails out for a two-week period.

If you receive an ITA, congratulations! You must submit a complete application before the deadline indicated. We can help you by representing eligible sponsors in their application and we will gladly discuss options with you about the timelines of processing these special sponsorships as well as options to have your loved ones visit and stay with you during the waiting period.
