Canada’s Parents and Grandparents 2023 Lottery has Begun

Excitement abounds as the Parent and Grandparent Programme (PGP) 2023 lottery kicks off! Over 24,000 applicants vying for 15,000 spots, plus an alternative: the hassle-free Parent Super Visa. Reunite with family in Canada hassle-free!

The long-awaited Parent and Grandparent Programme (PGP) 2023 lottery begins.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) sent applications from a pool of 24,200 potential applicants from October 10 to October 23. This invitation was sent to those who were chosen at random from the 2020 submissions, with the IRCC's ultimate goal of receiving 15,000 submissions.

For those who submitted an interest to a sponsor form in 2020 but are unable to apply for PGP in 2021 or 2022, IRCC recommends going to the email address you provided when submitting an interest to sponsor form back in 2020. Also, do check your spam as sometimes IRCC email ends up there. 

Eligibility for the PGP

An important eligibility factor is

  1. Minimum Necessary Income (MNI) is strong evidence that the sponsor has the financial ability to support the individuals they wish to bring to Canada through the PGP.
  2. Sponsors who accept an invitation to apply must submit Notices of Assessment from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for three tax years before their application. Except for Quebec, this requirement applies to sponsors in every province and territory across Canada.
  3. The Quebec Ministry of Immigration is responsible for determining the income of Quebecers sponsoring a parent or grandparent, considering provincial income requirements. Both the IRCC and the Quebec government require a signed undertaking from an interested sponsor.
  4. The program lasts 20 years for parents and grandparents in all provinces except Quebec, where it lasts 10 years.

Super Visa
The Super Visa appears to be an important option for those who may not receive an invitation this year.
The Super Visa is a temporary visa that allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents to bring their parents and grandparents from abroad to Canada. This visa allows parents and grandparents to visit their families in Canada for up to five consecutive years without having to renew their visitor status.

Super Visa holders can enter multiple times for up to 10 years.  Current visa holders can apply for an extension in Canada as tourists for up to seven years. One of the benefits of a super visa is that it's without a lottery. However, they must need Super Visa insurance. Those who meet the eligibility requirements can always choose this option. The applicant must meet the following requirements to obtain a super visa.

  • You must be a parent or grandparent of a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
  • No one is inadmissible to Canada for criminal or health reasons.
  • Demonstrate that the income requirements outlined in the Low-Income Cut-Off (LICO) can be met.
  • Provide a signed letter from their child or grandchild, a letter of invitation to Canada, a promise of financial support for the duration of the invitation, and a household count for the invitee.
  • Provide proof of medical insurance coverage for at least one year with a parent super visa insurance company i.e. Parent Super Visa

Those who will not receive an invitation to the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) draw should not despair, as the Parent Super Visa is giving the best super visa insurance. So, don't worry, there is still a way for you to reunite with your loved ones in Canada.
