Reuniting families is a priority for the Canadian government. Therefore, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) offers a variety of Family Sponsorship programs. To sponsor a family member in Canada, you must be 18 years old or more, a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident.
The Family Sponsorship programs, also known as Family Class programs, are in most cases a pathway to permanent residence. Like the Spouse and the Dependent Children Sponsorship, that allows spouse, common-law or conjugal partner or dependent children that live outside Canada to immigrate.
Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship also works in the same way as the aforementioned categories, granting the sponsored mother, father, grandmother and/or grandfather with the permanent resident status. In other words, they can profit from the same benefits as any other permanent resident in Canada.
While not a pathway to permanent residence, the Super Visa allows parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or permanent residents to visit Canada for up to two years at a time, with the visa being valid for 10 years. Also, in very specific circumstances, it is possible to Sponsor Other Close Relatives through a Canadian Family Sponsorship program.
