The Parents and Grandparents Program like past few years, has been in news for its active invites and intimations to the interested sponsors in first half of the years. As part of PGP process every year, in January 2019, the IRCC released the Interest to Sponsor form for the individuals willing to sponsor their parents to Canada for permanent residency.
Now, the 2nd stage of the program has completed just now, as the IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has finished issuing the Invitations to Apply (ITAs) for sponsorship to the candidates who submitted the Interest to Sponsor form in January month this year.
The IRCC has issued the invitations to all those applicants who submitted the Interest to sponsor form opened in January. Also, the invites were sent in the same order in which, interest to sponsor form was received from the applicants. The government started issuing the invites on 24th April 2019 and completed the same on 27th April 2019.
The sponsors, who have received the Invitation to Apply (ITA) for PGP sponsorship need to submit complete sponsorship application within the period of 60 days. The IRCC has the targetto accept 20,000 complete applications for Parents and Grandparents Program in the year 2019. However, to become a PGP sponsor, you need to be Canadian Citizens or permanent resident above 18 years of age. To become a sponsor under PGP, first of all,an applicant needs to submit the Interest to sponsor form that opens in the month of January every year.
During the 2019 interest to sponsor form intake in January 28 this year, Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada accepted 27,000 profiles on first come, first served basis. Surprisingly, within few minutes only the Interest to sponsor form intake reached to its cap limit.The candidates who received invites need to submit complete application for sponsorship within 60 days, along with all required documents. For those, who submitted the form in January but didn't receive invite this time around, the IRCC has kept their details intact for future consideration.
Also, as per IRCC, if it require more sponsors, it may open the Interest to Sponsor form again in 2019. Hence, the people who couldn't submit the form in January or not received the invite in April 2019 shouldn't lose the hope as last year also, the government invited the applicants in the second round as well increasing the target for 2018 from 10K to 17K applications.

Visas Avenue, what a professional company they are, who value their clients. Mrigya Shah and Arpita Saha were always there to guide us to the right path. All our queries are answered to the satisfaction. They have been supportive throughout the PR process, and kept us motivated to not take any haste decision. Their knowledge and experience is up to the mark. Thank you Visas Avenue team, keep up the good work.
Great experience with the team. They were flawless in their process and more importantly they would nag us if we were relaxed in the process. They are aware of the complete process as well keep us updated with the changes in the rules(such as biometric became compulsory in the middle of my process and they informed in in time). Easily reachable. Special thanks to all who worked directly with me, namely Jasmeet, Raghuvir, Shweta and Archana.
When my husband and I were looking to move to Canada we researched on a few agencies to help us out with process. Visas Avenue came with a lot of good reviews and I am glad we went with them. Right from the initial meet up with the local team at Chennai and the follow up coordinating with Mrigya and Arpita has been great. They patiently answered all our queries and guided us at crucial junctures. They ensured our profile captured all the necessary points. We are very happy with our decision and glad we decided on visas avenue.
I had an excellent experience with Visas Avenue. Mr. Aditya from the Mumbai office, Mr. Nitin and my case manager Mr. Vijay Singh deserve a special mention. Visas Avenue made the entire Canada PR process look really simple. Huge credit to the team for their professionalism , regular updates and ability to handle critical situations effectively. Have recommended Visas Avenue to a lot of friends and will continue to do so!
The teams, people and process for VISA application at VISAs Avenue is worth appreciation. It was a time consuming process in my Case being a PNP applicant for Canada and I must say they really helped in getting Ontario province nomination. They know the exact stuff and what needs to be done in those cases. I want to thank Mr. Vijay and his team for their continued guidance and support in these 2 years. I would high recommend Visas Avenue for anyone wanting VISA assiatnce in New Delhi.
We first met Niranjan Kanade at their Mumbai branch and he was very professional which made us consider Visas Avenue to start with.I would like to thank my case manager Vijay Singh and his team (Nitin and Anjali) for the amazing service. My country of residence is currently Australia but despite of the time difference, I never felt like it is very difficult to communicate with them. They were always very prompt with their replies and made sure that all my doubts are cleared. Their documentation is so perfect that my application for PR got approved in just 3 months.They also keep following up with you from time-to-time which literally keeps you on your toes in terms of getting all our documents in place. I would certainly recommend Visas Avenue for anyone who is aspiring to become a Canadian Permanent Resident as their service is top class.
We have obtained our Canada PR (Express Entry) through Visas Avenue , Delhi and had a very pleasant experience with them. They are very professional and dedicated people. Our special compliments for Mr. Yatin Malhotra who was our case manager and his entire team. With his expertise and knowledge he lead our case to success within a short span which was even unexpected for us. His clear vision about every aspect of documentation made things easier for us. Moreover, at times when dilemma arises over any issue, he never hesitated in taking full responsibility for his decisions.He responded to our repeated queries over phone in very positive and polite manner and had taken personal pain to complete the whole process on time , keeping all deadlines into consideration. In addition, Ms. Shivani Mehra initially guided us properly that helped us build more confidence in Visas Avenue. Also Mr. Gaurav Arora, our case Co- Ordinator helped immensely to lead our case to success through his timely, systematic planning & support.Finally, I would like to conclude saying that Visas Avenue is worth every penny we spent and are very happy that now we are Permanent Residents of Canada.

Thank you all coz this wouldn't be possible with out you all. Some of you have worked more on my case than others and I thank-you for bearing with us too. Apologies if I'm missing out on any names.
