2022 Parents and Grandparents Program
IRCC stated on September 6th, in an email that the application intake will be available in the forthcoming weeks for the Parents and Grandparents Program. As well, the candidates can sponsor their parents and grandparents for Canadian immigration under this program. In previous years, the IRCC has planned that parents and grandparents will be qualified for a visa via draw. But it remains unproven whether this will also be the case this year, and IRCC will reveal the procedure as part of the announcement.
Furthermore, the sponsor should be a Canadian PR or citizen who is more than 18 years old and can show that they beat the least sponsorship income. In addition, they are required to sign an undertaking, which is a document that states they can support their parents or grandparents for around 20 years.
Also, the IRCC conducted a draw for the PGP in 2021 that invited 30,000 Canadians to submit their sponsor application. Moreover, last year’s figure was higher to compensate for the lower number. IRCC also only permitted 10,000 sponsors to apply for the PRG in 2020 due to the pandemic. Census Report Of 2021
