Eligibility Criteria

An individual is permitted to sponsor his/her parents and grandparents if:

  • The person is at least 18 years of age
  • Lives in Canada
  • A Canadian citizen, maybe a permanent resident or registered as an Indian under the Canadian Indian Act
  • Has a sufficient amount of money to sponsor the people
  • Needs to provide income proof

However, it is essential to know that you can only sponsor your parents and grandparents if you are connected to them by blood or adoption. In case of separation or divorce, you can still sponsor their spouses or marital partners. Also, the dependent children get the eligibility to get appropriate sponsorship in Canada.

Application Procedure

In case you want to apply for sponsoring your parents and grandparents in Canada, you must register for two applications:

  • You need to apply for becoming a sponsor
  • Your grandparents and parents must apply for getting permanent residence in Canada

You need to submit these applications simultaneously for approval. Right from the date of the invitation, the form must reach the concerned authorities within 60 days. Make sure to check the deadline that is mentioned in the request. The required steps to follow for filling the application are:

  • Fill out the interest to sponsor form, which is available at the beginning of the year. Once the application window closes down, then only the concerned authorities start reviewing and evaluating the duplicates.
  • Once the review is done, the government officials send invitations to the potential sponsors for submitting completed applications right in the same manner as the previous sponsor form.
  • Never prepare your application before the concerned authorities invite you.
  • The application kit consists of the document checklist, forms, and instruction guide for the applicants.
  • Once done, you must pay the appropriate fees for the sponsor application form.
  • The mailing instructions are all provided within the application kit. Hence make sure to go through them and submit the application within 60 days from the date of the invitation.

After your file your application form, you might receive the receipt and application number once it gets into processing. In case you are not sure about how to check these details, then make sure to check out our website for more immigration information.
