Canadians are dissatisfied with PGP 2023 not being available for new sponsors

Most Canadians expected IRCC to open the Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) for new sponsors in 2023, but they were disappointed when the program remained closed to new participants.

The new round of the PGP will open on October 10, 2023, inviting 24,200 prospective sponsors to apply.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) aims to accept 15,000 complete applications, but PGP 2023 is not open to new sponsors.

This is the third year that IRCC only considers sponsors who applied in 2020. Canada's Immigration Levels Plan for 2023 aims to welcome 465,000 new permanent residents, including 28,500 parents and grandparents.

By 2025, Canada plans to increase its target to 500,000 newcomers, with 36,000 spots reserved for parents and grandparents.
