Canada, after it started its immigration processes, has now put its focus on reuniting the parents and grandparents with the residents and citizens of Canada.

With this program the parents and grandparents of the residents/citizens of Canada and their spouses will obtain Permanent residency in Canada.

Canada has allowed a maximum of 10,000 applications for parents and grandparents during this year 2020. IRCC has announced that they would be accepting application forms for Expression of Interest for this category from October 13th 2020. The EOI is not an application for PGP, but for the sponsors to express their interest to bring their parents and grandparents to Canada on Permanent Residency. From the received Expression of Interest, IRCC will then pick random sponsors to who IRCC will send an Invitation to apply for Permanent residency. The sponsors should respond back in 60days during which, the sponsors need to apply with their completed applications for sponsorship. IRCC plans to take 30,000 applications in the year 2021.
