Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has held its 2020 Parents and Grandparents Program (PGP) lottery.

The lottery was set to take place by the end of 2020, but was delayed due to the global coronavirus pandemic, among other reasons, according to IRCC.

Those who have been drawn from the lottery have 60 days to submit their sponsorship application to IRCC.

The launch of the 2020 PGP was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. IRCC then opened the interest to sponsor window between October 13 and November 3. During this period, Canadian citizens and permanent residents were able to indicate their desire to IRCC to sponsor their parents and grandparents to obtain permanent resident status.

  • Meet the Minimum Necessary Income level

IRCC has stated it will announce details on the 2021 PGP in the first half of the New Year. It will use a lottery system once again. This means that sponsors will be provided with a window to indicate their interest to sponsor on IRCC’s website, and then IRCC will hold another lottery. The 2021 PGP will be three times bigger than the 2020 PGP intake, as IRCC has said it will accept up to 30,000 applications.
