The immigration department of Canada IRCC has randomly selected 10,000 applications for parent and grandparent sponsorship. Now these applicants are able to submit their profile towards IRCC for their permanent residency status.
10,000 applicants can now sponsor their parent and grandparent after this notification issued by IRCC under the Parent and Grandparent Program (PGP). But these applicants only have 90 days to submit their profile with all required documents. The last date to submit a profile is July 24, 2017.
According to IRCC, these 10,000 sponsors represent around 17,000 sponsored persons, as an application can include more than one sponsored person. The 10,000 sponsors were selected from a pool of around 95,000 potential sponsors who had submitted an ‘Interest to Sponsor’ form earlier this year.
