JANUARY 28, 2019-THE DATE THE NEW PROCEDURE FOR SPONSORING PARENTS IS TO BE LAUNCHED!

On January 11, 2019, IRCC (Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada) posted the rules that will govern this procedure that will allow 20,000 Canadians (permanent residents and citizens) to sponsor their parents and grandparents. Basically, unlike the previous intake process, in 2019 the Government will provide a first-in-first-served approach, but will maintain the on-line registration of the candidates’ interest to sponsor forms.

Since the last year more than 80 thousand potential sponsors could not file their applications because they didn’t win the lottery, it is expected that all of them and perhaps many more will rush to file on-line their  interest to sponsor forms immediately after noon, on January 28, 2019.  We still don’t have any indication as to how will IRCC prevent the system from crashing, and, more importantly, how is it going to establish the order in which those forms have been filed when almost 100,000 candidates have clicked “submit” in the very same moment.
