Canada Parent and Grandparent Sponsorship

Many Canadian Citizen and Permanent Residents want to bring their parent(s) or grandparent(s) to live in Canada permanently. To do this they must first meet certain criteria set by IRCC.

  • Note: A lottery system is in place for parents and grandparents applying to come to Canada. The 2017 submission period is now closed and new submissions will be accepted starting 2018. The exact date will be posted when it is released on the IRCC website.
  • There were 10,000 spots released for 2017 and the same number of spots are expected to be released for 2018.

Contact Eastman Law Office for assessment of whether you meet these criteria and whether your parent(s) or grandparent(s) is eligible to apply for Canadian Permanent Residence at (905) 451-1550 for a consultation or by e-mailing us at contact@theimmigrater.com.
