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

We aren’t accepting any more applications for the 2021 process

For the 2021 process, we randomly selected and invited potential sponsors from the remaining pool of interest to sponsor forms submitted in 2020.

Between September 23 and October 4, 2021, we invited potential sponsors to apply. The deadline to apply has now passed.

We sent 34,500 invitations to potential sponsors in order to get 30,000 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.
