Parents and Grandparents Program Commences for Interested Sponsors

January 2018, 03
EMAIL  Print A+
The arrival of New Year has seen IRCC reopening its Parents and Grandparents Program, meant for Canadian citizens and PRs, who plan to sponsor their parents/grandparents during the year. The online form seeking Interest to Sponsor opened on January 2nd. All persons interested in sponsoring, are required to fill up this form, which will close on February 1st, 2018. Giving the form of Interest to Sponsor is truly not an application, but an initial step, for those seeking participation in the Parents/Grandparents Program. It permits certain Canadian citizens and PRs, above the age of 18, in sponsoring their parents/grandparents, to come to the country, as permanent residents of Canada.

Individuals, who are interested in sponsoring, need to first review the requirements of eligibility, for ensuring their qualification for the program and have a look at the prescribed requirements of income. An important point to note is that the updated form of Interest to Sponsor, now seeks a declaration, that they possess the Minimum Necessary Income, for supporting the sponsored person. The details of MNI are given below, and they are valid for all Canadian provinces and territories except Quebec, (which has set different income norms). The sponsors need to provide evidence, that the minimum income requirements, for the past three taxation years, are met.
