December 22, 2018 - Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) introduced a new application intake process in 2017 for sponsoring parents and grandparents. This new process is intended to make it fairer and more transparent for applicants. Now, potential sponsors must first notify IRCC that they are interested in sponsoring their parents and grandparents by submitting an on-line "Interest to Sponsor" form. Using a random selection process, IRCC will then invite potential sponsors to apply to sponsor their parents and grandparents. The necessary on-line "Interest to Sponsor" form will be available at noon EST on January 2, 2018 until noon February 1, 2018.
