What to do if you receive a Parents and Grandparents Program 2021 invitation

Published: September 20, 2021

Canada is holding its Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) 2021 lottery between September 23 and October 7.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) plans to draw some 30,000 candidates from the lottery over a two-week period. IRCC will only consider those who submitted an Interest to Sponsor form on its website between noon Eastern Time on October 13, 2020 and noon Eastern Time on November 3, 2020.

Please check the email account used to submit your Interest to Sponsor form frequently over the next two weeks to see if you receive an invitation. Make sure to also check your spam/junk folders for messages from IRCC.

Invitations come from CIC.CPCMississaugaDoNotReply-CTDMississaugaNePasRepondre.CIC@cic.gc.ca

The email subject is "Parents and Grandparents Program Invitation / L’invitation à présenter une demande dans le cadre du Programme des parents et des grands-parents - CPCM / CTDM".

Sponsors and applicants who receive an invitation to sponsor will have only 60 days to submit a complete immigration application including supporting documents (e.g., income tax records, civil status documents, and other material information).

Receiving an invitation may prove to be a once in a lifetime opportunity to obtain permanent residence for your loved ones. It is therefore important that you act quickly.
