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

We aren’t accepting any more applications for 2020

In 2020, the interest to sponsor form was open for a limited time. We randomly selected and invited potential sponsors to apply to sponsor their parents and grandparents. This year, we sent enough invitations to make sure we could reach the annual cap of 10,000 applications.

Between January 4-8, 2021, we invited potential sponsors to apply. The deadline for them to apply has now passed.

We’ll post details about the process for 2021 on this page when they’re available.

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 2 years at a time.
