Invitations to Apply for 2020 PGP Program

Lisa C. Citizenship & Immigration, Seniors, Updates

The interest to sponsor form was available on the IRCC website from October 13 to November 3, 2020. Since then, to ensure a fair, transparent and equal opportunity for applicants, IRCC has

  • removed duplicate submissions
  • randomly selected potential sponsors to invite them to apply

Selected potential sponsors will be receiving invitations to apply for the 2020 Parents and Grandparents Program throughout this week, starting from January 5, 2021.

If you have submitted the interest to sponsor form, start to check your email. If you are one of the lucky ones, you will know by the end of this week.

If you receive an invitation to apply, you must submit a complete application to IRCC within 60 days.

For the 2020 PGP program, IRCC will accept up to a maximum of 10,000 applications for processing.

Those interested in bringing their parents or grandparents to Canada can also consider a parent and grandparent super visa, which allows them to stay in Canada for up to 2 years at a time.
