New Canadian Immigration Sponsorship Process for Parents and Grandparents

Expected Improvement with a New Application Process for Parents and Grandparents

The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship of Canada declared that the Parent and Grandparent Sponsorship Program is due for some application adjustments as of January 2017. Canadian citizens who plan to sponsor one or both of their parents, or grandparents, for Canadian permanent residence status, are first obliged to fill out our application form. The online form will be submitted to the IRCC and will only be made available for 30 days starting January 3, 2017.

Following the 30 day submission period, 10, 000 individuals will be selected at random to submit a complete application. The persons submitting the sponsorship applications must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada. Any applications submitted by the persons being sponsored for immigration will be Rejected, as well as more than one application for the same individual. Applications by a Spouse will also be denied.

The Parent Grandparent Application Process

After the 10, 000 persons are notified that they have been selected for the Parent and Grandparent Sponsorship, they will be granted 90 days to submit a complete application. The application packet and guide will be concocted by the IRCC, which will only be made available to the 10, 000 persons selected at random. However, the IRCC states that they will also be contacting the persons who are not selected and that they are welcome to reapply in 2018.
In previous years, person who applied for Parent and Grandparent sponsorship were assisted in a first-come, first-served approach. But the IRCC hopes that the new changes will amend any imbalances in the Parent and Grandparent sponsorship process.

Customer Reviews

After initially having a very bad experience with one of their immigration consultants and after posting a negative review on Google I was immediately contacted by the Managing Director to reschedule another consultation to try and provide me with a more positive experience. I have been impressed by their attention to customer service as a result of this and I appreciate the initiative that they have taken to turn my negative experience into a positive one. My second consultation was a great experience, I spoke with Brian about my Canadian PR application and he was able to give me great advice and was extremely helpful. He answered all my questions and explained the process of how to apply and was very patient with me which I really appreciate.

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
