The Miracle - - Immigration -

In­ter­est to Spon­sor form is the first step in spon­sor­ing process Cana­dian cit­i­zens and per­ma­nent res­i­dents in­ter­ested in spon­sor­ing their par­ents or grand­par­ents for per­ma­nent res­i­dence have un­til Fe­bru­ary 1 to sub­mit their In­ter­est to Spon­sor form.The form will be avail­able un­til 12 p.m. East­ern Stan­dard Time on Fe­bru­ary 1.The In­ter­est to Spon­sor form is not an ap- pli­ca­tion but com­plet­ing it is the first step in the spon­sor­ing process. Once the Fe­bru­ary 1 dead­line has passed, Im­mi­gra­tion, Refugees and Cit­i­zen­ship Canada (IRCC) will be­gin ran­domly se­lect­ing and invit­ing in­ter­ested spon­sors to ap­ply to the Par­ents and Grand­par­ents Pro­gram (PGP). IRCC says its aim is to re­ceive 10,000 new spon­sor­ship ap­pli­ca­tions in 2018.Through the PGP, Cana­dian cit­i­zens and per­ma­nent res­i­dents over the age of 18 can spon­sor their par­ents and grand­par­ents for Cana­dian per­ma­nent res­i­dence. All in­ter­ested spon­sors are asked to first re­view the el­i­gi­bil­ity re­quire­ments to en­sure they qual­ify for the PGP, in­clud­ing its in­come re­quire­ments. In or­der to com­plete the In­ter­est to Spon­sor form, in­ter­ested spon­sors must de­clare that they have the Min­i­mum Nec­es­sary In­come (MNI) to sup­port those they hope to spon­sor. The MNI is as fol­lows for in­ter­ested spon­sors in ev­ery Cana­dian prov­ince and ter­ri­tory other than Que­bec, which has its own in­come re­quire­ments. In­ter­ested spon­sors must pro­vide proof that they meet the min­i­mum in­come re­quire­ments for each of the last three tax­a­tion years. c Source: ic­
