Canada immigration alert: Parents, grandparents prepare files now

Parent and Grandparent Programme (PGP) expected to reopen in January 2016.  Parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and residents wishing to relocate to Canada should prepare their applications now, as the popular parent and grandparent immigration stream will reopen in January 2016.  Although he programme reopens every year for new applications, the demand is much is higher than the supply and application caps are reached within weeks each year.

In 2015 the government of Canada accepted 5,000 completed applications, which were submitted in just a couple of days.  The year before the same application cap was reached within three weeks.  As the system operates on a first come, first serve basis, acting fast is key for sponsors as well as applicants.

The CIC recommends applicants prepare their file now, so it can be submitted as soon as the programme opens.
