Parents And Grandparents Program (PGP) 2023
Canada’s Parents and Grandparents Program for 2022
In this blog, we will share the latest updates about the Parents and Grandparents Program.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada stated recently that the application intake for the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) will be available in the upcoming weeks.
Applicants can sponsor their parents or grandparents for immigration to Canada through this program. In the past, IRCC has decided which grandparents and parents will be eligible for a visa through a lottery. But it is still not confirmed whether the pattern will be followed this year also. The IRRC will disclose the process as part of the announcement.
The sponsors must be permanent residents or citizens of Canada over 18 years old and show they surpass the minimum salary necessary for sponsorship. They need to sign an agreement that states they are willing to support their grandparents or parents for 20 years or 10 years for sponsors who live in Quebec.
IRCC organized a lottery in 2021 for the PGP that invited 30,000 Canadians to apply for sponsorship. The figure for last year was kept high to recompense for 2020’s low figure. In 2020 the IRCC allowed only 10,000 sponsors to apply for PGP due to the pandemic outbreak.
