Canadian government has increased the annual target for Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP). The government accepts the 10,000 applications per year from Canadians, interested in sponsoring their parents and grandparents to Canada. However, for this year, the target has been increased by the government.
The Parent and Grandparent Program allows the Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their parents and grandparents to Canada. The sponsors first have to submit EOI form and accordingly, IRCC invites them to submit the complete sponsorship application under PGP.
PGP target increased for 2018
The IRCC (Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada) has raised the target for Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) by 7,000. Hence, the total number of applications to be accepted from the sponsors of PGP in the year 2018 are 17,000. The update has been issued by the Immigration Minister, Mr. Ahmed Hussen himself.
Earlier, the announcement also came from IRCC that it will continue to invite those sponsors of PGP, who submitted Interest to sponsor form in the beginning of this year. The government has further confirmed its commitment of easing the process of family reunification to allow Canadians reunite with their families in the country.
How additional invites will be issued?
The extra invites will be issued via similar random selection procedure which IRCC implemented earlier to invite the sponsors in the start of the year. The applicants of PGP sponsorship, who get the invite from IRCC, will have 60 days (from the date of receipt of invitation) to submit the complete application to sponsor their Parents and Grandparents to Canada.
The successful applicants will be able to apply permanent residence for their parents and grandparents under family class sponsorship of Canada.

I would like to thank Visas Avenue for helping us out with Canada PR. When my husband first visited the office, they explained the step-by-step process which helped us in understanding things clearly.Special thanks to Ajay who was constantly keeping us posted with the documents that are necessary for the process.

Had the best experience, in terms of agents, of my life so far! All thanks to Vivin, Sharmila and Priyanka, who were there supporting and working efficiently at every stage of the process! Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a no-stress and smooth visa process! Thank you!
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..!!

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."
