The Canadian Government has announced to double the intake of Immigration applications to current Parent and Grandparent Program (PGP). The PGP was opened last week, i.e. January 4, 2016 and the website of the government was showing that the cap is 5000 for the current year. However, in a recent interview, Immigration Minister John McCallum said that a total of 10,000 applications will be accepted this year.
PGP received 14000 Applications this year
As per McCallum, since PGP opening on January 4, 2016, we received more than 14000 applications from the people, willing to sponsor their Grandparents or Parents. And the announcement was made on the website on January 7, 2016 only that the program is closed for new applications and that the government will consider the first 10000 for the processing. The further updates, with regard to the processing of accepted applications and returning of the extra applications will possibly be shared later. McCallum also said the wait time at now is too high and this is one among the key things that needs to be addressed.
The Liberal Government doubled the intake as per the their prior commitment
The liberal government, however, kept their promise made during the campaign about doubling the application intake for the PGP program from 5,000 to 10,000 applications per year. The 5,000 cap for PGP was implemented by the conservatives during their tenure. The announcement, however, has remained under the scanner since then and criticized as well by the critics for the various reasons.
The decision got the mixed reaction
The liberal government’s announcement, however, got the mixed reaction from the Canadians. At one end the immigrants welcomed the decision, on the other end, the opposition and critics slammed the decision, saying that this will put the extra burden on the economy. The Prime Minister Trudeau, however, defended his decision a few months back, saying that it will be good for the economy. He said that allowing the parents and grandparents in Canada will save the daycare cost of the immigrants in Canada, as their children will be looked after by the grandparents at home only, which in turn will save the money and consequently, enhance their purchasing power.

The overall experience has been very good. I would recommend Visas Avenue to people who want to immigrate to the destination of their choice. Working with Visas Avenue has been a delight.

"First of all I would like to thank Tabby K who initially guided me in detail through the Australian PR process, even though I had already conveyed that I will not be signing up for any Professional Services and will be filing it on my own. Still she detailed out every step and answered all my queries then and there itself. Secondly and most importantly a big thanks to our case officer Kirti Chauhan whose impeccable professionalism and patience in hearing and responding to our thousand queries helped us achieving the Visa. We used to be extra cautious and pessimistic with every step, but she always kept us motivated and was a great support during the whole process. I will definitely recommend Visas Avenue to all Visa aspirants."
