As of early 2017, it was announced that Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is now implementing a new approach for processing applications for Canadian citizens or permanent residents to sponsor their parents or grandparents. IRCC has ambitious goals with regards to these specific sponsorships; they have created an "Interest to Sponsor" form which can help sponsor's indicate their interest in sponsoring their parent or grandparent and allows them to enter for a chance to be randomly selected to apply. Watch our video below on these new changes and what this means for prospect Canadians applying through a parent or grandparent sponsorship application.

For Canadian citizens and permanent residents who wish to sponsor their parent or grandparent, they may have another chance at doing so as Immigration Canada has made some changes. This is extremely exciting news for parents and grandparents who have applied for parent or grandparent sponsorship as their chances of coming to Canada have increased. Specifically, for sponsors who have submitted their application online between the dates of January 3 and February 2 of 2017, they have been entered into a pool of candidates to be selected. Furthermore, IRCC declared on April 25 that they have randomly selected 10,000 potential sponsors from a pool of roughly 95,000 individuals to be invited to submit their sponsorship application. Once you have been invited, the sponsors must complete the application within 90 days of receiving the invitation. Furthermore, in this video, it explains in detail how to apply for a parent or grandparent sponsorship. Therefore, if you'd like to know more information, please watch the video in it's entirety.
