Dear future neighbour,

IRCC is set to commence the issuance of invitations for Parents and Grandparents sponsorship 2024 on Tuesday, May 21, 2024.

The immigration department will randomly select some candidates from the pool who filled out the interest-to-sponsor forms in 2020 to invite them to apply.

The IRCC will start sending invitations to apply to 35,700 potential sponsors, aiming to receive up to 20,500 completed applications.

Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2024 Eligibility

To be eligible to qualify to sponsor your parents or grandparents for PR (permanent residency) in Canada, you must be:

  • a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident of Canada, or an Indian enrolled under the Canadian Indian Act who is at least eighteen years old.
  • must fulfill the IRCC financial requirement and have enough money to sustain the family you wish to sponsor, along with acceptable proof of income for the last three years.
  • must have submitted an interest-to-sponsor form for PGP in 2020.

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will start sending invitations around May 21st and continue for about 2 weeks.

It is recommended to check the email address provided in 2020 if an interest-to-sponsor form was submitted that year but no invitation to apply was received in 2021, 2022, or 2023.

Sponsors who are not in the pool and desire to invite their parents or grandparents can go with the option of applying for a Canada Super Visa. With this option, the Super Visa holder has a valid ten-year visa and can stay in Canada for 5 years at a stretch and also have the opportunity to apply for an extension afterwards.

The average processing time for parents and grandparents (PGP) sponsorship applications across Canada is now 20 months, except in Quebec which is approximately 33 months.
