Canada Family Immigration
Here’s a good for parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents. Now, Canada is set to re-launch the parent and grandparent program (PGP) on 2 January 2015.

CIC (Citizenship and Immigration Minister of Canada), Chris Alexander emphasized the benefits of the PGP and said that the country has welcomed over 70,000 parents and grandparents from 2012. The figure hit the record with regards to the number of parent and grandparents admitted over past two decades. He expressed his happiness by saying thanks to the Canadian government’s Action Plan for accelerated Family Reunification.  And, the backlog rate has also minimized by 54 %.

Family members such as grandparents and parents who would like to visit their dependents residing in the country can lodge an application for the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa. It is the fast and convenient visa option for family members who wish to spend more time along with their family. Till date, around 45,000 Super Visas have been granted with a success rate of more than 80 %.

Alexander stated that the country has the best family reunification plans and the government is working hard to minimize backlog rate and to enhance processing times, which ultimately reunite the families with their beloved ones.
