Parental Sponsorship 2021 Canada

IRCC will receive 30,0000 applications for Parental Sponsorship 2021 the next week

Important (July 20, 2021): IRCC won’t allow new registration for parental sponsorship in 2021. However, they will invite 30,000 more applicants from the group that showed their interest in October 2020. They will issue the invitations in the course of two weeks and starting from Sep 20, 2021.

IRCC will invite a record number of people to apply under the Parental Sponsorship 2021 program, over a two-week period beginning the week of September 20. This program allows Canadian citizen or permanent resident to sponsor their parent(s) or grandparent(s).

Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) will use the same random selection process as used in previous years. What does this mean? if the person wins the lottery, they invite them to initiate the sponsorship application.

Here we tell you the details of the process.

The application process for the Parental Sponsorship 2021

IRCC aims to receive up to 40,000 complete applications in 2021.

– Invitations will begin to be sent on September 20, 2021.

  • 10,000 invitations will send to potential sponsors who have already submitted an interest to sponsor form in 2020
  • And 30,000 invitations will send to sponsors from the 2021 intake process.

NOTE: All the invitations will aim at the people who entered the pool in October 2020. IRCC won’t open a new pool this year.

Of course, these potential sponsors should check their email account to confirm whether they’ve been selected. They will also be able to check their status online using their confirmation number.

– Those invited will have 60 days to submit their applications using a new Permanent Resident Digital Intake tool. This tool allows applications to be submitted electronically and simplifies the application process.

  • IRCC suggests that those not invited should consider applying for a super visa. Clearly, this would allow a parent or grandparent to visit them in Canada for up to 2 years at a time. Further, with this visa, they don’t need to renew their status. Fortunately, a super visa allows multiple entries for up to 10 years.

– In addition, selected candidates need to have their income assessed for tax years 2020, 2019, and 2018. This includes those who applied as part of the 2020 intake. Also:

  • It is important to note that, for the 2020 tax year, the income requirement will continue to be the minimum necessary income, instead of the minimum necessary income plus 30%. Further, this will allow regular Employment Insurance benefits and temporary COVID-19 benefits.

Other Facts

  • For those who no longer have access to their email account: Further details will be posted on the IRCC website in the coming weeks.
  • Misplaced confirmation numbers: these can be retrieved using the Lost My Confirmation Number tool. This will be available online once all the invitations have been sent.
