December 2017, 23
EMAIL  Print A+
Canadian permanent residents and citizens can now take the initial step to apply for bringing their parents/grandparents to the country when the Program meant for Parents and Grandparents revive in 2018.

IRCC had introduced a revised procedure in 2017 in the application intake to sponsor parents and grandparents and had made it fair and transparent for all the applicants. Currently, possible sponsors need to first notify IRCC about their interest in sponsoring their parents/grandparents through submitting a form regarding “Interest to Sponsor”. Through a random process of selection, IRCC will invite potential sponsors to submit an application to sponsor their parents/grandparents.

Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, announced that such “Interest to Sponsor” forms will be available from January 2nd, 2018. Persons wishing to apply for sponsoring their parents/grandparents in the future need to first fill up the online form. It will be available until February 1st, 2018.

It is of great importance that only the applicants who meet the sponsorship eligibility requirements must submit the “Interest to Sponsor” form. This measure will help in ensuring an efficient system and permit many eligible sponsors to arrange the arrival of their parents/grandparents to the country.

There was an addition of questions in the 2018 version of the “Interest to Sponsor” form for helping the potential sponsors in doing their self-assessment to know their eligibility in sponsoring. The minister added that Family reunification was a top priority for the Canadian Government.

On January 2, he invited the eligible sponsors to express their interest in bringing their parents/ grandparents to the country. Helping the people further to reunite with their relatives in Canada shows the commitment to keep families together. This will, in turn, lead to successful integration of the people.
