These Instructions are given, pursuant to section 87.3 and subsections 92(1.1) and (2) of the Act, by the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration as, in the opinion of the Minister, these Instructions will best support the attainment of the immigration goals established by the Government of Canada by seeing families reunited in Canada.

Scope

These Instructions apply to applications for a permanent resident visa of sponsors’ parents or grandparents made under the family class, referred to in paragraphs 117(1)(c) and (d) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (Regulations), respectively, as well as to sponsorship applications made in relation to those applications.

Conditions — interests to sponsor

The Department will accept interests to sponsor from persons interested in sponsoring a parent or grandparent. The maximum number of interests to sponsor that will be accepted each calendar year will be published on the website of the Department. Interests to sponsor may, as needed, be requested throughout the calendar year in order to achieve the maximum number of sponsorship applications to be accepted for processing within that calendar year. Duplicate interests to sponsor will be removed, keeping only the most recent one.

Invitations to make a sponsorship application will be issued to persons who successfully submit their interest to sponsor until the maximum number of sponsorship applications accepted for processing is reached. Invitations will be issued in the order in which the Department received the interests to sponsor. Invitations sent by the Department are not transferable.

The period during which a person can indicate their interest in making a sponsorship application begins at noon, Eastern standard time, on January 28, 2019, and ends when the maximum number of interests to sponsor to be accepted by the Department is reached.

Number of applications to be accepted for processing in a year

A maximum of 20 000 sponsorship applications made in relation to applications for a permanent resident visa, which are made by sponsors’ parents or grandparents under the family class, are accepted for processing each year. The year begins on January 1 and ends on December 31 of the same calendar year.

Starting in 2020, individuals who submitted an interest to sponsor the previous year but who were not invited to apply during that year may be given consideration the following year.

Conditions — sponsorship applications

With respect to a year, in order to be processed, any sponsorship application referred to in these Instructions that has not been returned under section 12 of the Regulations for not meeting the requirements of sections 10 and 11 of the Regulations — for example by not using all the applicable forms provided by the Department in the application package published on the website of the Department or by not including all information, documents and evidence referred to in paragraph 10(1)(c) of the Regulations — must meet the following conditions:
