Details of 2019 Parents and Grandparents Program coming soon

Ottawa, December 10, 2018 – Family reunification is a top immigration priority for the Government of Canada. The Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) continues to be very popular, with high demand for sponsorship from Canadian citizens and permanent residents. Details on the 2019 intake system will be released in the coming weeks.

On August 20, 2018, the Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, announced that, as a result of listening to stakeholders and clients, in 2019 the Government of Canada is moving away from a random-selection process for PGP to a first-in approach.

The PGP program will reopen during the month of January.

We encourage all interested potential sponsors and stakeholders to stay up to date on PGP 2019 by visiting IRCC’s website and social media channels:
