Canadian to Restart Parent and Grandparent Program
Here’s good news for parents and grandparents of residents and citizens of Canada. Now, the government is planning to re-open the parent and grandparent immigration program (PGP) early next year.

Under PGP program, the eligible parents and grandparents will be able to apply for Canadian residency and citizenship. However, the program was not available for last nine months as the application cap has been reached within a couple of weeks.

Notably, 5,000 applications were accepted in the first week of February. Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) stated that the program will be re-opened for a new round of applications in the coming year.

Apparently, aspirants are recommended to arrange their file and keep it ready to be submitted as soon as the intake begins.

The citizens and residents of Canada who are over 18 years can sponsor parents and grandparents provided satisfying the condition of necessary income, hold funds for at least three year period prior to application and agree to escort with their family members for a period of 20 years if required.

Canada welcomed around 50,000 parents and grandparents as permanent residents between 2012 and 2013 and 20,000 in 2014, of which 5000 were new applicants.

For the mean time, another option was developed under the supervise program, which allows eligible parents and grandparents to apply for visitor visa for a maximum period of two years, with the option to renew this visa for another period of 10 years.

Reportedly, around 1,000 applications were accepted under the PGP program for every month in last year and approximately 87% of applications were approved.
