Parent and Grandparent (PGP) Immigration

Effective January 2, 2014 families can once again sponsor their parents and grandparents for immigration to Canada. This category of the family sponsorship class was put on hold in November 2011 due to a huge backlog of applications in it. In its place the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa was created to allow for parents and grandparents to visit for 2 year periods for a maximum total of 10 years. The Super Visa category will continue to remain open.
