Sponsor your parents and grandparents
If you submit the interest to sponsor form and you're invited to submit a complete application, you can sponsor your parents and grandparents to become permanent residents of Canada.
You can sponsor your own parents and grandparents if:
- you’re at least 18 years old;
- you live in Canada;
