The Parent and Grandparents Program (PGP) of Canada allows the Canadian citizens and Permanent Residents (PRs) to sponsor their parents and grandparents to live in Canada. In short, the PGP allows parents/grandparents sponsored by Canadians to arrive in Canada on PR (Permanent Residence) visa. Hence, it is one of the best programs to obtain Parents PR Canada.
Parents and Grandparents Program process
Canadian government every year invites the Interest to sponsor form, from the potential sponsors as per the annual quota of Canada Parent and Grandparents Program (PGP).
To sponsor your parents/grandparents, you need to submit the interest to sponsor. Subsequently, the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) randomly select sponsors from the selected forms and issue them Invitation to Apply (ITA) for the PGP. If you have received the ITA for PGP, you can submit the application to sponsor your parents and grandparents to become permanent residents of Canada.
Submit two applications
Once you have received the invitation for PGP, you need to submit2 applications for the parents visa Canada, i.e.
The first application you need to submit to sponsor your parents, while the second application, i.e. the permanent residency application your parents need to submit to apply for the PR (Permanent Residence) visa.
Submit both the applications together online at the same time. You need to submit your application within 60 days of the date of your invitation. The deadline is clearly mentioned on your invitation to apply letter. Those who didn’t get the ITA for the PGP, also has the option to apply for parent and grandparent super visa Canada.
