Canada Opts to send invitations to parents and grandparents soon

March 2018, 21
EMAIL  Print A+

The process of Family reunification has been given top most priority by the Canadian Government. In 2017, IRCC had introduced a revised process for application intake catering to the Parents and Grandparents sponsorship program. It is being used in 2018 also.

Starting from January 2nd till February 1st, 2018, the potential sponsors, who showed interest, were asked to fill up an interest to sponsor form, online, informing the Department, about their intention to sponsor their parents/grandparents during the year.

After the completion of the formalities, presently IRCC has undertaken a review of the submissions, and after the removal of duplicates, it has randomly selected the sponsors. Opening on March 19, for a few days, invitations will be issued, to selected persons. The Potential sponsors would have a time of 60 days, beginning from the date of the invitation, for submitting a completed application, for sponsoring their parents or grandparents.

Important note:

  • This confirmation will be sent through emails, to the selected persons. In order not to miss the email, the persons submitting, an Interest to Sponsor Form, must check the same email account, through which they had made the correspondence,

  • They must also check the junk mail folder to see its arrival.

The steps to do, if the applicant is randomly selected, for submitting the application, are as follows:

Based on March 19 data, the potential sponsors, need to confirm, if they have been selected, by seeing that their unique confirmation number, is present, on the list of numbers randomly selected.

  • The presence of the number shows that they have been invited for submitting their application seeking sponsorship

  • The absence of the number shows that they have not been selected

In case the IRCC has not received 10,000 completed applications, further potential sponsors would be invited to apply, in the future. All the candidates who have submitted a form, showing interest to sponsor, in the year, need to see their email accounts, and the website of IRCC, and other channels, during the year, to see whether, there are additional rounds, meant for inviting potential sponsors.

The persons who have a child/ grandchild, residing in Canada, and intend to spend time with their families, in the country, have the option, to submit an application for the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa, even when they are not being sponsored for Permanent Residence. This offer gives them a choice to stay in Canada for two years on their first visit, but the regular visa offers only the stay for six months.
