Processing time ?

20 to 24 months

Check application processing times

The persons you sponsor may need to give biometrics after they apply. This processing time includes the time they need to give their biometrics.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will delay the opening of the 2020 Parents and Grandparents program. We’ll post details on the opening of the program online and our social media channels once they’re available.

About the process

If you submit the interest to sponsor form and you’re invited to submit a complete application, you can sponsor your parents and grandparents to become permanent residents of Canada.

If you do, you must:

  • support them and their dependants financially
  • make sure they don’t need social assistance from the government
