Parents and Grandparents Program in 2022

Here’s good news for those waiting for their parents and grandparents to be with them in Canada. IRCC is looking to welcome 23500 immigrants in 2022 through the PGP program called the Parents and Grandparents Program. 

Under this, if you’re a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident in Canada but have your parents residing in other countries, you will be able to sponsor them to immigrate to Canada. 

Though there is no exact information on 2022, you will have to go through the basic eligibility requirement to support your parents. Every year, IRCC releases a set of guidelines to be followed and picks applications randomly from the list of eligible candidates. 

What are the eligibility criteria for Parents and Grandparents Program sponsors?

To be eligible, you need to meet the following requirements:

  • Should fill and complete an Interest to Sponsor form on the IRCC’s website.
  • Should be a permanent resident or a Canadian citizen residing in Canada.
  • Should submit proof of residency and age. The sponsor should be above 18.
  • Since you will be sponsoring, you need to show that you are financially capable and have your income certificate.
  • You should be able to support for 20 years, so you need to be economically independent and show proof of the same.

If you live in Quebec, you need to go through the guidelines of Quebec on the official website and follow the eligibility requirements.

However, you will not be eligible to sponsor if you are a temporary resident, have a permanent residence in process, or do not have any income certificate proof to meet the income requirement. You will also not be eligible if you have an immigration loan or are convicted of criminal violence. So, carefully go through the website and submit the necessary documents to sponsor your parents and grandparents.
