Canada has announced about the acceptance of applications for the Parents and Grandparents Program. The number of ITAs to be issued in the next two weeks is 23,100. IRCC will prefer those people who showed interest to invite their parents and grandparents in autumn 2020. The number of sponsors in the pool is 155,000.
In 2020 sponsors were given three weeks to show their interest of sponsoring by filling out a form available on the IRCC website. IRCC held a lottery and 10,000 applications were approved for PGP 2020. In 2021, 30,000 applications were accepted under PGP.
Sponsors have to fulfill the eligibility criteria mentioned below to invite their parents and grandparents:
The proof of MNI should be provided after the acceptance of interest in sponsorship through an online form. Sponsors all over Canada except Quebec also have to provide the Notices of Assessment issued by the Canada Revenue Agency to show proof of tax payment for 2020, 2021, and 2022.
Sponsors have to think about the size of their families as they have to provide information about minimum necessary income requirements. The family members include the following:
MNI thresholds have been lowered up to 30 percent by IRCC for 2020 and 2021 due to loss of income during the pandemic.
Sponsors in Quebec also have to go for their income assessment to invite their parents and grandparents. The assessment will be done by the Ministry in Quebec. IRCC and the Ministry of Quebec will need a signed undertaking which has to be submitted by the sponsors in Quebec. This undertaking will help in setting the time for the financial responsibility of the sponsors.
The length of undertaking in Canada is 20 years for parents and grandparents while for Quebec it is ten years.
