In 2018, the IRCC announced the will be reopening the Parents and Grandparent Sponsorship Program in 2019. In the previous years this program would open on January 2nd. This is not the case in 2019.
The IRCC tweeted that they will not be opening the program until late January 2019. The IRCC expects to process up to 20,000 application through the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) in 2019. This program is a first-come, first-served basis where the first 20,000 eligible sponsors who submit an Interest to Sponsor form will be issued an invitation to apply.
“Using this modified intake process will give the government more flexibility in the application process, ensuring that we receive as many applications as possible,” IRCC said.

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.
Great firm on top of their game. Worked with us til the end to ensure my parents visa was approved and guided us along the way in a professional manor. Natalie is awesome. Majority of our communications were via email, but the responses were immediate. I would greatly recommend this firm. Thank you for all your hard work and help. My family and I do really appreciate it.
