Sponsor your parents and grandparents: Find out if you were invited to apply

We aren’t accepting any more applications for the 2022 process

For the 2022 process, we invited potential sponsors from the remaining pool of interest to sponsor forms submitted in 2020.

Between October 12 and 20, 2022, we invited potential sponsors to apply. The deadline to apply has now passed.

We sent 23,100 invitations to potential sponsors to receive up to 15,000 complete applications.

If you’re not invited to apply

Parents and grandparents can visit for extended periods

If you’d like your parents and grandparents to come to Canada, they may be eligible to apply for a super visa which could let them stay in Canada for up to 5 years at a time.

Parents and grandparents visiting on a super visa can also apply for 2-year extensions to their stay while still in Canada.
