2020 Canada PGP Lottery Starts Issuing Invitations

By Casey January 6, 2021 (Updated January 6, 2021) 1 min. read

Beginning January 5, 2021, the IRCC started to hold it’s 2020 Parent and Grandparent Program lottery. This lottery was originally supposed to take place in late 2020 but had to be delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, which took a toll on Canadian immigration as a whole.

A maximum of 10,000 applications will be issued and accepted for processing as part of the 2020 Parent and Grandparent program intake.

Those chosen for this lottery have 60 days to submit their sponsorship applications and supporting documents to IRCC. However, the IRCC has stated, “If you can’t get a supporting document due to service disruptions from COVID-19, include an explanation and/or proof you can’t submit it within the 60-day deadline in your application package. If you still don’t have it after the 60 days, you’ll get a 90-day extension.

The IRCC will launch another PGP lottery sometime later in 2021, but this time they plan to accept a total of 30,000 new applications.
