The largely popular and applied Parent and Grandparent Program (PGP) of Canada immigration is opening on 3rd January, 2017. The PGP will accept 10,000 fresh applications this time around. The program opens to invite the visa applications from the parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents, who want to reunite with their families in Canada.
Why you must prepare in advance to apply in PGP opening January 3rd?
Looking at the popularity of this program, the number of applications is expected to exceed the given quota of 10,000 applications. Hence, the applicants who are prepared well in advanced to apply will have greater chance of becoming successful. On the other end, if you are not ready till the very last moment, it’s unlikely to book your place in the list of accepted candidates.
How PGP works?
The Parent and Grandparent Program (PGP) allow the Canadian citizens as well as permanent residents to sponsor their parents and grandparents to move to Canada as the permanent residents. The PGP is based on first come, first served basis and hence, the response for this program every year exceeds the pre-decided quota.
PNP Applications Intake was doubled by the government in view of growing demand
Under the previous conservative government the Parent and Grandparent Program application intake was 5000, which was planned to double in the year 2017, however, looking at the huge number of applications received (approx. 14000), within four days of opening the program, earlier this year, the government decided to double the intake to 10,000 effective January, 2016 only.
And hence, the IRCC retained the first 10,000 complete applications for the further processing under January, 2016 PNP intake. So, it clearly suggests that the demand of Canadian Parent and Grandparent Program visas is immense and it always exceeds the set quota of applications.
Eligibility Requirements for PGP
The parents and grandparents applying under the PGP Program get the permanent residency in Canada and subsequently, the citizenship after due course of time. The sponsor of the PGP visa, require meeting certain income requirements.Here are key requirements the sponsor of PGP need to meet:

Visas Avenue proven to be good consultant when it's regarding processing my Canadian pr. To me they were professional and I’m completely satisfied with the accountability they have shown in my case and follow ups they did for me. Rajeshwari.V is my Case Manager for Canada and she did an excellent job in explaining me the whole process/ documents needed and how/where to get them. Finally i got my pr exactly on/before the expected processing time. I knew the whole process and yet I took help of visas avenue as I wanted professionals to fail-proof my application and make sure it cause no extra unnecessary delays and that’s exactly what I got for them. Definitely recommended..!!
Mr. Lenin Reddy
Highly recommend them. This is not my first experience with them, but in fact have got my brother s, bhabhi s and two friend s applications already processed through them. The fees is quite reasonable and transparent and even for a straightforward case, I would recommend going with VA. Special shout out to Vaibhav and Samiksha for standing with me throughout the process. Thanks a ton, guys!""The best thing about Visa Avenues is that when they take up your application, they really get invested in the process. I started off with a 189/190 application but when the application conditions changed, VA advised me to go for 489. This is significant as they normally dont lodge 489 applications, but did it on my behalf as I was already a client. This willingness to go beyond what is strictly required is what I appreciate the most. Further, they are very diligent in going through the requirements and in dotting every i and ticking every t.
"Visa Avenues is a superb professional services available for immigration related consulting. They are super prompt, reliable, thorough and provide alternatives if required. My experience is based on working with Samiksha Lal, Vaibhav Saini and Shivangi Arora."
