The parents and Grandparents program is set to reopen.

Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced it would send 35,700 invitations by approving 20,500 complete applications. The PGP is set to reopen from May 21st, 2024. The PGP allows Canadian citizens to sponsor their parents or grandparents for Canadian permanent residence. Applicants to this PGP will be invited through a lottery system.

What is the process to receive permanent residence through the PGP?

To receive Canadian PR through the PGP, candidates must meet the following requirements:

  • Candidates must meet all the eligibility criteria (e.g., they should be eligible to sponsor, reside in Canada, and meet the minimum required income levels).
  • The interest to sponsor form must be completed on IRCC’s website. To be eligible for the 2024 round, applicants should not have received an invitation to apply (ITA) in 2021, 2022, or 2023.
  • Please check the email given on the interest to sponsor form for an invitation on the day the lottery reopens and for the following two weeks after it restarts.
  • Once an invitation has been received, an application must be submitted through the Permanent Residence Portal before the deadline mentioned in the email.


Super Visa program

IRCC also runs the Super-Visa pathway, which is similar to PGP. The Super-Visa pathway allows Canadian citizens to sponsor their parents and grandparents to come and stay in Canada on an extended visitor visa (to meet family members). Applicants under this program can stay in Canada for five years at a time and later extend their stay for two years. Applicants can also apply for a super-visa if their status expires.


IRCC runs the Super Visa program throughout the year. Super Visa applications have the same service standard as PGP, with IRCC aiming to process all applications within 112 days from receipt.
