The Minister has just released the information about the Parents/Grandparents Sponsorship Program for 2021. This year, only those who had submitted their interest to sponsor forms last year for the 2020 program will be eligible to receive an invitation to apply. Here are the details:
- Interest to Sponsor Forms – 2020
Only those who had already submitted their Interest to Sponsor (ITS) forms for last year’s program in 2020 will be eligible for the upcoming draw.
- Invitations to Apply
IRCC will be sending 30,000 invitations to those who had submitted their ITS forms last year based on a random draw. This will take place over a period of 2 weeks starting on September 20, 2021. Make sure that you are able to check the email account that you had used to submit your ITS.
You will be assessed based on your income for 2018, 2019, and 2020.
- Days to Submit
If you are invited to apply, you have 60 days to submit your application. Incomplete applications will be returned and you will not likely have another opportunity to resubmit the application in this round.
