Parents Grandparents Sponsorship

On Monday July 30, 2018, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced on their website that they will be sending out a second round of invitations this week to more potential sponsors for parent/grandparent sponsorship. To be a potential sponsor, you must have already submitted an Interest to Sponsor form in January 2018, when IRCC was still accepting the forms for this program.

IRCC has pointed out some important things to note:

  • On July 31, 2018 they will start sending out invitations to potential sponsors
  • If you submitted an Interest to Sponsor form in 2018 but have not yet received an invitation, you are encouraged to check your email and junk mail carefully throughout the week.
  • Only those who have been randomly selected to submit an application will receive an email.

Even if you are not selected to sponsor your parents or grandparents, they can still visit you here in Canada for extended periods of time (up to two years at a time) using the parent and grandparent super visa.
