Canada parent migration

When it comes to migration of parents of immigrants living in Canada, the country offers many options to help parents migrate to Canada.

Canada Dependent Visa

The Canada Dependent Visa enables you to bring your parents to Canada and allows them to work or study full-time if they possess the required permits.  

Eligibility requirements to sponsor parents
  • You must be at least 18 years old.
  • You must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada.
  • You should not be seeking government assistance except for a disability.
  • You must meet the low-income threshold
  • You must be legally married to your spouse
  • You must have a genuine relationship with your dependents
  • Passport and travel history
  • Background verification
  • Marriage certificate
  • Other proof of relationship
  • Income proof of sponsor to show adequate finances

Canada PGP program

The reunification of families has always been welcomed by Canada and the IRCC has concentrated on immigrant families being reunited in Canada. The consequence of this initiative is that more than ten thousand supported family members are accepted as Permanent Residents to come to Canada each year.

One immigration program which facilitates this is the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) which was introduced in 2011 and has been modified over the years.

The PGP is regarded as a viable method to bring a family member to the country and help in their settlement. From the government’s side, the PGP acts as strong motive for immigrants to choose Canada because it gives them the option of bringing their parents or grandparents to the country once they settle down.

Eligibility criteria for sponsors under the PGP program

According to the IRCC, Canadian nationals, permanent residents, and registered First Nations can sponsor their own parents or grandparents.

Sponsors must be 18 years of age or older, residing in Canada, and must have enough financial resources to help the individuals they choose to sponsor.

For 20 years, beginning when they become permanent residents, they need to have enough financial resources to sponsor supported family members.

Canada super visa

The Canada Parent Migration Super Visa is a multiple entry visa that allows visa holders to make multiple entries to the country for up to ten years. The permit allows parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents to visit their family and stay in Canada for up to two years.

Eligibility conditions for applicant:
