IRCC 2024 Intake for Sponsoring Parents and Grandparents

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has announced that, starting May 21, 2024, invitations will be sent to potential sponsors to apply for their parents and grandparents to become permanent residents.

  • IRCC will send 35,700 invitations over the course of approximately two weeks to those who submitted an interest to sponsor form in 2020.
  • The goal is to accept up to 20,500 complete applications for the 2024 intake.

For those who aren’t invited to apply as a sponsor, their parents and grandparents may be eligible to apply for a super visa which lets them stay in Canada for five years at a time, and to apply for two-year extensions once they are in Canada.
