Family Sponsorship program in 2022

The Family Sponsorship program is a Canadian immigration program that allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor certain family members to come to Canada as permanent residents. The program is intended to reunite families and to promote family unity. The program was first introduced in the 1970s and has been a popular way for families to be reunited in Canada.

In 2022, the Canadian government has made several changes to the Family Sponsorship program to make it more accessible and responsive to the needs of families. This includes increasing the number of sponsorships available for parents and grandparents and streamlining the process for sponsoring spouses and common-law partners.

One of the key changes to the Family Sponsorship program in 2022 is the introduction of a new Parent and Grandparent Sponsorship program. This program allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their parents and grandparents to come to Canada as permanent residents.
