Canada invites the winners of the parental sponsorship lottery

IRCC completed the invitations on Jan 11, 2021. You may check out if you have been invited by visiting their website. They will invite 30,000 more people later this year. Stay tuned, and we’ll update you.

One of the immigration options for family members is parental sponsorship. Of course, with this approach, a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada sponsors their parents. Simply put, the sponsor agrees to support their parents or grandparents financially. IRCC currently runs a lottery system for this group. Consequently, if the person wins the lottery, they invite them to initiate the sponsorship application. According to CBC, Canada has decided to invite the parental sponsorship lottery winners in the next 10 days.

Who may sponsor their parents to Canada

As a sponsor, you must meet certain requirements. For example, you must be an adult Canadian citizen or a permanent resident who lives in Canada. However, the most important aspect is the income requirements. Regardless, you currently need to enter a lottery pool. The lottery pool was open between October 13, 2020, and November Nov 3, 2020. Canada allowed everyone to apply. However, they will invite 10,000 winners to apply under parental sponsorship applications.

What if I receive an invitation for parental sponsorship

If Canada invites you to apply for parental sponsorship, you must submit a complete package to them. Of course, they will give you a limited time to apply. The current time limit is 90 days. However, they may show more flexibility due to the coronavirus pandemic.

What if I do not receive an invitation for parental sponsorship

If Canada does not invite you to apply under that parental sponsorship, don’t lose hope. They intend to invite 30,000 more applicants in 2021. Therefore, wait for the next round of online applications. However, you must apply from scratch.
