Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) accepting now for interest to sponsor forms for the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) starting from October 13 and will take applications until November 3, 2020. These are not IMM applications but rather, are an opportunity for people to express their interest in sponsoring their family members for immigration to Canada.
IRCC will randomly select potential sponsors and send them an invitation to submit an official application. Selected applicants will have up to 60 days to submit their completed sponsorship application. IRCC intends to accept a maximum of 10,000 applications in 2020 and 30,000 new applications during 2021.
IRCC is also introducing a temporary public policy that will reduce the income requirement for the 2020 Tax Year to the minimum necessary income, rather than the usual minimum necessary income (LICO) plus 30 per cent. This is to accommodate those who have been negatively affected financially by the COVID-19.
