From September 23 to October 5, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) sent out invitations to selected potential sponsors who submitted their interest in sponsoring their parents and grandparents in the fall of 2020.
Find out if you are invited here.
If you were not invited to apply for PGP, your parents or grandparents may want to apply for a super visa, which would let them visit for up to 2 years at a time, with multiple entries, over a 10 year period.
Do you want your parents and grandparents to apply for a super visa? Below are some key eligibility requirements:
- You must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada
- You must sign a letter to invite them to Canada
- Your household must meet the minimum necessary income.
- Your parents or grandparents must take an immigration medical exam
- They must have medical insurance from a Canadian insurance company that met certain requirements.
Note that super visa applications are made from outside of Canada.
