Second Round of Selection for Parents and Grandparents Program
Every year, the Canadian Government offers forth 10,000 invitations for individuals to sponsor their parents and grandparents to Canada. This year, a new application intake process was introduced under which 10,000 individuals, after completing an online form, would be invited at random to submit a sponsorship application. The deadline to register for the 2017 pool was February 2017.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) did not receive 10,000 valid applications by August 2017 for those who were selected, and therefore did not fill the quota of 10,000 sponsors. The government will now issue another round of invitations to potential sponsors, selected only from the pool of forms completed online by February. This excludes those who had already received invitations in February.
This is a second chance for individuals who did not receive an initial invitation after registering, as they will have another opportunity to be selected. Starting September 6th and continuing throughout the week, invitations will be sent to potential sponsors who will be required to apply by December 8, 2017. To confirm selection, an individual can fill out the check if you were selected web form or look up their personal confirmation number to see if it is on the list of those selected. Those who are not selected in this second round will have the chance to apply again in 2018.

I cannot thank VisaPlace enough for their help. I had an issue with my immigration work that I needed professional help with. The team did a stellar job in making my case and I am greatly indebted to them. I worked directly with Alicea. She was extremely professional and responsive! Even after building my case and submitting my application, she was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had for several months after. I highly recommend the team and would come back in future if I have to. Thank you!
Visaplace was able to get myself my Visa, as well as many of my employees. They made my dreams of living in the USA and starting a company come true. Their process is clean, simple, and affordable. Thank you to the whole team for your incredible work!
I just cannot praise this place enough, staff is extremely helpful, very knowledgeable, all my questions were answered elaborately and not once I was confused from the answer. They do their best to get back to you as quick as possible after you have asked a question, I can actually sit down and praise this place all day and still there will be a lot more left to praise about, Richard, Lisa, Alicea, Rania, Caroline, and everybody else, such a great staff! I am finally permanent resident! It was a long journey but patience and hard work with a good Immigration Law Firm is the key from my experience! I would strongly recommend this place, VisaPlace I thank you very much for making my dream come true, every penny spent was completely worth it.
