On October 11, 2022, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) announced that the Government of Canada will accept 15,000 applications under the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) in 2022. This week, IRCC will send 23,100 invitations to potential sponsors to ensure they meet the goal of 15,000 applications. IRCC will follow the approach taken for the 2021 intake and invite randomly selected potential sponsors remaining in the pool of submissions from 2020. In addition, the sponsors will have to meet a lower income requirement for sponsoring parents and grandparents for the 2020 and 2021 tax years.
