Canada Parent and Grandparents Program Update

On October 11, 2022, The IRCC announced the Parent and Grandparents Program (PGP) – 2022 application process. The IRCC said they will send Invitations to Apply (ITAs) to 23,100 potential sponsors this year.

Family reunification is essential in attracting, sustaining, and integrating immigrants who make a contribution to our country’s success. Canada has a very expansive family sponsorship program that allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents to bring their parents and grandparents to the country as permanent residents.

What Does the PGP Do?

The PGP essentially allows Canadian permanent residents and citizens to sponsor their parents and grandparents for a PR (Permanent Residence) visa to come to Canada. Each year, the Canadian government invites a set number of individuals to complete an interest to sponsor form in order to sponsor their parents/grandparents.

Because there are still a number of interest to sponsor forms in the pool of submissions from 2020, IRCC will send invitations to apply to randomly selected potential sponsors from that pool rather than opening a new interest to sponsor form. This is the same strategy used for the 2021 intake. Anyone who submitted an interest to sponsor form in 2020 but did not receive an invitation to apply in January 2021 or September 2021 should check the email address they provided when they submitted their interest.

How to Apply for Canada Parents and Grandparents Program 2022

You need to submit both applications (i.e. sponsorship and the permanent residence application) together online at the same time. You must submit your application by December 24, 2022.

I got my US L1 Visa through them, pretty smooth process. We weren’t sure they’d take our case as we had some issues with retrieving some documents, but they worked with us on getting everything we needed. Recommend.

Allow me to express that our case proved to be more complex than initially anticipated. However, Aisha and Reena provided unwavering support throughout the entire process. At each juncture, they offered clear guidance on necessary actions, guiding us through the intricacies we couldn’t navigate independently. While the procedure proved more intricate than expected, our legal team maintained close communication, ensuring we were well-informed and adequately prepared. Confronted with challenges, they approached them with a positive attitude, instilling confidence through their professionalism and competence. I wholeheartedly recommend their services. While moments of stress were inevitable, their assurance and ability to convey that confidence were instrumental. Reflecting on the experience, I am certain we would not have succeeded without their assistance, or at the very least, the journey would have been significantly prolonged.
