It is announced by Government of Canada that Parent and Grandparent sponsorship program will reopen in January 2019. This program which allows Canadians to sponsor their parents and grandparents for permanent residence. Target of 20,500 applications is set by the government and applications will be entertained on first come-first served basis.
Actual process of application is not yet announced but Canada is getting rid of lottery system and introducing the policy of first come-first served while lottery system remained in demand for two years previously. Hopefully intake system will be released in few weeks but some rules are there as sponsor should be Canadian citizen or permanent resident and sponsor must be meeting certain requirements like at the time of application presence in Canada and have enough funds to support the sponsored family members.
All persons being sponsored must be parents or grand parents of sponsored ones. If a person is not eligible for parent grandparent sponsorship program he can easily apply for super visa for parents and grandparents.
