Understanding the Sponsorship of Parents and Grandparents Program

Citizenship and Immigration Canada are trying to prevent the wait times and this untimely means that you can be reunited with your parents and grandparents as soon as possible. Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s Multiculturalism Mister Jason Kenney says that Phase 2 of the action plan should provide faster processing times and will reduce future backlogs.

  • The super visa will continue to provide flexibility for families and will allow these visa holders to remain in Canada for 2 years.
  • In order to sponsor you r parent you must now meet the new qualifying criteria this will increase the financial responsibility of sponsors while limited the cost to tax payers.
  • Canada will accept 5,000 new applications in 2014.

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.

This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!

VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
