Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship

How to Get Your Parents And Grandparents Sponsorship to Join you in Canada?

If you’re a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you can sponsor your parent and grandparent to come to Canada through the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP). Once they become permanent residents, they’ll be able to enjoy many benefits in Canada.

Some of the benefits they would get are access to free healthcare, being able to work or study without a permit, and eventually becoming eligible to apply for Canadian citizenship.

Parent And Grandparent Sponsorship

"Parents and Grandparents" Defined For PGP

You can sponsor your own parents and grandparents if you are related to them by blood or adoption. If you are married, then you can also co-sponsor your spouse’s in-laws.
If I sponsor my parents, can I also include my siblings in that sponsorship?
You can list your eligible siblings (this includes half-siblings and step-siblings) on the sponsorship application.
Who is Qualified as a Dependent Child?
To qualify as a dependent child, your siblings (including half and step) must be under the age of 22; and unmarried (not married or in a common law relationship). If your siblings (including half and step) are 22 years old or older, they may only qualify as dependent children if they have been financially dependent on their parents due to a physical or mental condition since before the age of 22.
Are you Eligible to Sponsor?

To apply for parent and grandparent Sponsorship (along with their dependents) to Canada, you must:

How much income do you need to sponsor parents and grandparents?

Every year, the Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) releases a table with the minimum yearly income that potential sponsors need to have to be eligible for sponsoring their parents or grandparents. Even though the required income level for 2022 has not been published yet, by using last year’s guidelines, we can get an idea of what may be required:

Income Requirements Parents And Grandparents Sponsorship

Given the fact that numerous sponsors might have been financially struck by COVID-19, for 2020 and 2021, the required income has only been reduced to what is necessary instead of what would usually be needed, plus an additional 30%.

Are Your Parents or Grandparents Eligible For PGP Program?
If your parents or grandparents have any medical issues or criminal history, they may not be able to come to Canada. Inadmissibility due to health and/or past offences would result in their inability to enter Canada or become permanent residents.

How to Apply For Parents And Grandparents Sponsorship?

Step 1. Get an invitation to apply

IRCC will randomly select and invite potential sponsors to apply on behalf of their parents and grandparents. IRCC’s goal is to accept 15,000 applications in total, so for the 2022 intake, they have sent out 23,100 invitations.

Step 2. Apply online

If you’re invited to apply to sponsor your parents and grandparents, there are 2 applications:

  1. You must apply to become a sponsor
  2. Your parents or grandparents must apply for permanent residence

You need to submit both sponsorship and permanent residence applications online at the same time.

You must submit your application by 11:59 PM EST, December 24, 2022.

For the 2022 selection process, IRCC will include people from the pool of potential sponsors who submitted an interest to sponsor form in 2020.

Processing Times and Fees

The minimum fee for sponsorship applications is CAD $1080. However, please keep in mind that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, processing times may be delayed up to 36 months.

Alternatives to Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship

The super visa is an excellent alternative to PGP for those parents and grandparents who wish to stay in Canada for an up timespan of up to five years. The Super visa also permits multiple entries into the country over 10 years.

The Super Visa may be a more opportune choice than the PGP, as applications can be submitted year-round with no quotas or limits on the number of visas issued annually.

However, please note that a super visa does not have the same benefits as having permanent residence status. In addition, those with a super visa are required to be insured by a Canadian medical insurance company.

Super Visa for Parents and Grandparents

If you are a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, then you may apply for a super visa for your parent(s) and/or grandparent(s).

The super visa is a great alternative to the standard visitor visa because it grants your parents and grandparents an extended stay in Canada. Although, meeting the requirements can be more specific and difficult.

There are specific requirements that must be met in order to apply for a super visa for your parents or grandparents.

If you have a child or grandchild in Canada:

For the parents or grandparents outside Canada:

-Valid for at least one year
-At least CAD$100,000 in medical coverage
-Proof of payment

    I would highly recommend Total Visa Immigration. Mr Vikas Sharma is very polite and a knowledgeable person. He has dealt with our applications in a very organized and professional way.If you have any queries or work related to Canada immigration, you can contact him without hesitation.Many thanks to the team.
    We had a great consultation and experience with Total Visa Immigration Services (TVIS). Our primary POC was Dr Vikas, who guided us through the documentation process. I must say that he was thorough in terms of documentation and didn’t leave a single paper, absence of which would have affected the final decision on our (Mine + Spouse’s) work permit applications.Although, our application looked a bit complex to us, he managed it very well and finally, our visas got approved by the IRCC. I would highly recommend TVIS for all kinds of applications related to Canada immigration.Thank you, Dr Vikas for your time and support.

I found him dealing the case very meticulously and systematically. He seems to be updated with all the latest information and guide the applicant accordingly. I can vouch for his knowledge regarding documentation, which surely yield positive results. Me and my family would like to pay our sincere gratitude to Vikas. Thanks
