On June 23, 2022, the Government of Canada published a new program delivery update for family class applications. The new guidelines will assist immigration officers in assessing multiple applications, foreign sources of income, counting family size, family class applications with separated spouses, income requirements for sponsoring parents and grandparents, minimum income requirements for the 2020 and 2021 taxation years and co-signers. In addition, the instructions have been modified to assist officers in recognizing and processing sponsors who were formerly from Quebec but now live outside of the province.
