Parental Sponsorship Program
If you are a citizen or permanent resident in Canada over the age of 18, you can sponsor a parent or grandparent in their efforts to gain permanent residency.
In order to qualify for this program, you will need to be able to financially support your parent or grandparent if necessary and you will be responsible for them from the time that they step foot on Canadian soil. This includes catering to their basic needs such as housing and providing food. As a sponsor, it is essential that you ensure that your sponsored family member does not claim social assistance from the government.
The sponsor and sponsored person must both meet certain requirements. This includes the sponsored person passing their medical examinations, background checks and proving that they do not have a criminal record.
