Help Centre what do you need help with?

What will happen to an application for a family member I didn’t declare if it’s in process, or was denied?

The public policy only applies to

  • new applications or
  • those where we didn’t make a final decision before the public policy was announced

If your application is in process

If you have an application in process and your family member qualifies for the pilot project, you don’t need to do anything. We’ll review any applications that were already submitted if they are eligible under the pilot project.

If your application was already denied

If you applied before and the application was denied, you may be able to submit a new application to sponsor them, if they

  • are eligible to be sponsored and
  • qualify for the pilot project
