🍁 We've got some heartwarming news that'll make you smile from ear to ear. 🌟 Canada's Parents and Grandparents Program is making a grand return! 🏡💓

Canada's Parent and Grandparents Program reopens this fall

It's official! Ottawa announced on September 8, 2023 that Canada's Parents and Grandparents Program reopens this fall, and it's here to bring more joy and togetherness to the Great White North.

Canada has always been dedicated to reuniting families, and this commitment shines through the historically high admissions numbers under the Multi-Year Levels Plan. 📈 This year, Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is taking the next step in making family dreams come true by accepting up to 15,000 complete applications for sponsorship under this heartwarming program. 🥰

What to Expect

📅 Mark your calendars for October 10, 2023, because that's when the magic begins! IRCC will start sending invitations to apply to 24,200 potential sponsors who are eager to reunite with their loved ones in Canada. 💌 The goal is to receive up to 15,000 complete applications, and these invitations will be sent out over the course of two weeks. ✉️

Now, here's the exciting twist: Instead of opening a new interest-to-sponsor form, IRCC will be sending invitations to randomly selected potential sponsors from the pool of submissions from 2020. 🎉 This approach mirrors what Canada did in 2021 and 2022, and it's all part of the effort to ensure fairness in the process. So, if you submitted an interest to sponsor form in 2020 but didn't get an invitation in the past two years, now's your chance! 🤞

Tech-Savvy Reunions

Those lucky folks invited to apply in 2023 will continue to use the Permanent Residence Portal or the Representative Permanent Residence Portal, making it a breeze to submit your applications electronically. 💻

This is just one way Canada is modernizing its immigration system to ensure your family can come together faster and with less hassle. We are sure you heard about the bad Canadian immigration backlog and long processing time for paper applications🚀

Super Visa for Extended Reunions

Now, here's a tip for those who may not receive an invitation this year but are eager to be with their parents and grandparents in Canada. Consider having them apply for a super visa! 🚀👵👴

This fantastic option is a multiple-entry visa that can be valid for up to 10 years. Even better, super visa holders can stay in Canada for 5 years at a time, with the option to extend their visit by up to 2 years without leaving the country. That means longer, unforgettable moment with your loved ones and less tiring flights for your parents and grandparents! 🕰️🧡


Are you excited about reuniting with your parents and grandparents in Canada? Ready to embark on this adventure of a lifetime? 🌟👨‍👩‍👧‍👦💞

If you have already submitted your interest to sponsor form in 2022, please check your email from Oct 10, 2023 daily for 2 weeks and don't miss out on this incredible opportunity! You have 60 days to submit the application once you get the invitation to apply.

Please contact us as soon as possible if you are keen to work with us to fulfill your parents' Canadian dream.
