Emails have been sent out from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) inviting applicants to apply to sponsor parents or grandparents as part of the 2023 intake of the Parents and Grandparents Program.
If you have received an email, you and the parents and grandparents you want to sponsor must submit a complete application online through the Permanent Residence Portal. The application must be submitted by the principal applicant (your parent or grandparent) or by an authorized representative on their behalf.
If an authorized representative is submitting the application online on behalf of the principal applicant, the authorized representative must sign into their Representative Residence Portal account to do so.
IRCC must receive your application on or before December 22nd, 2023 at 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time. IRCC will not accept late or incomplete applications.
If you, your parents or grandparents or the representative cannot apply online, you may ask for an application in an alternate format.
