We have good news about CIC parents' sponsorship. On January 1, 2019, Canada opened the CIC sponsorship form.
On April 24, 2019, Canada invited potential sponsors to complete their applications.
The sponsorship form was open for a limited time. During that time, the Canadian government accepted 27,000 submissions using the first-in method.

We have given you the general conditions of CIC sponsorship for having your parents live in Canada.
Now we are going to give you some special circumstances when you want to start a CIC sponsorship application for your parents to live in Canada.

As a CIC sponsor, you are taking on the responsibilities and obligations of your parents toward the Government of Quebec. You also;
It seems like such a simple thing to do because you know how great your parents are and how wonderful Canada will be when you are all together.
But there are things you need to know and criteria met before you can even begin the legal processing for them to come to Canada.
There are many programs Canada offers so you can sponsor your parents. So if one fails there is another one that may work.
One of them is the Canada Super Visa Program. We recently wrote about the Canadian Super Visa Program for family members not too long ago on our blog.
About 100,000 applied for the Canadian Super Visa in January this year. The program is only for parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens or residents.
Created in 2011 by the Canadian government it is an effort to keep families integrated together.
A super visa is a good place to start if your residency application is rejected. It doesn't matter why this happens. It matters if you have an alternative you can pursue.
We are the best alternative. We can help you meet the health insurance criteria of the super visa.
That way you have more than met the health insurance criteria for your parents or grandparents living in Canada.
We have written articles on the insurance requirements for super visas. We have some of the best information on what insurance meets super visa criteria.
We will get you an insurance quote which not only meets the super visa criteria but also fits your budget.
The super visa is sometimes well suited for having your parents or grandparents come and live with you. It is for two years but you can apply for an extension.
The super visa also has a step-by-step process for your parents or grandparents. We walk you through the process with the below list;
After all the above, your parent or grandparent will need to give you a letter of financial support.
There are financial requirements your parents or grandparents need to meet if they are coming to stay with you.
There are also financial requirements you need to meet if your family member is coming to live with you. Please make sure you check out these financial requirements prior to submitting the application.
CIC sponsorship is full of criteria you and your parents or grandparents need to meet.
None of the requirements can be skipped or overlooked. It is vital you include the answers within the application even if the answer is you don't know.

There are more specific and detailed criteria you need to meet for CIC sponsorship.
We enjoy going over some of the ways we work within our product guide to meet the super visa criteria needed. Criteria that will help you complete a successful sponsorship application.
Every CIC sponsorship application has a review period. This begins when it goes into the Government of Canada Immigration and Citizenship Agency Department.
Every document is checked off the document checklist to make sure you have turned in a completed application.
One of the critical and vital items on the checklist is health insurance. This is very true if you are applying under the Super Visa Application.
Don't let your application be sent back to you as incomplete. Don't take the chance and submit a Super Visa application knowing you don't have the health insurance requirement you need.
