Sponsor your parents and grandparents: Find out if you’re invited to apply
How the 2021 process will work
The steps to apply to sponsor your parents and grandparents will be a bit different for the 2021 process. We’ll randomly select and invite potential sponsors from the remaining pool of interest to sponsor forms submitted in 2020. We’ll send enough invitations to apply to reach our goal of accepting 30,000 complete applications.
If you lost or forgot your confirmation number
After we’ve sent all invitations to apply, check your invitation status through our online form. We’ll answer you within 10 business days.
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.
