I want to sponsor my parents, grandparents, a newly adopted child or another relative. How do I do this?
To sponsor your newly (or soon to be) adopted child or another relative, you must send the Application to Sponsor a Member of the Family Class to the Case Processing Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. Please note that due to high demand and wait times, we are temporarily not accepting applications to sponsor parents or grandparents.
Another option for parents and grandparents to visit Canada for extended periods, but who do not necessarily want to seek permanent residence, is to apply for a Parent and Grandparent Super Visa – which is valid for up to 10 years. The Super Visa allows a parent or grandparent to stay in Canada for up to 24 months at a time, without having to renew their visa. Read more about the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa.
