Interested Sponsors Can Now Apply Through Parents and Grandparents Program

Parents and Grandparents Program is now open for Canadian citizens and permanent residents. The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) reopened this program for those who want to sponsor their parents and grandparents.

How to Apply?

The first step in this regard is to fill the online form by interested sponsors. This form is not an application in itself, yet it serves as the necessary step to be a part of the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP). This allows the eligible Canadian citizens and permanent residents having 18 years of age or above to sponsor their parents and grandparents.

The interested sponsors must take a look at the eligibility requirements to make sure that they duly qualify for this program. The income requirements are of great importance, as the ‘Interest to Sponsor’ form requires the interested sponsors to mention their financial ability to support their Parents and grandparents in Canada.

Minimum Necessary Income (MNI)

Interested Sponsors Can Now Apply Through Parents and Grandparents Program

The sponsor must fulfill the Minimum Necessary Income (MNI) requirements with a view to avail this opportunity. The MNI threshold is almost the same for all the Canadian provinces and territories. However, the Quebec is an exception, as it requires different income requirements. In addition, the interested sponsors should prove that they have been continuously meeting the minimum income requirements for past three taxation years.

Invitation to Apply

Once the ‘Interest to Sponsor’ form is received by the IRCC, it randomly selects the potential sponsors. After this, the IRCC invites selected candidates to submit an application under PGP program. The invited sponsors will have to apply within 90 days along with the required documents. IRCC is planning to receive 10,000 applications under Parents and Grandparents program in 2018.
