In 2023-2025, Canada intends to welcome more new permanent residents.

Canada has long been a welcoming place for international students, welcoming a sizable number of them each year. It has always been a location where the students' emotional, financial, and personal needs are met. We have some excellent news for students who intend to study in Canada this year or in any subsequent year. The nation is now allowing you to bring your family to live with you.

Canada has observed a large rise of around 60% new permanent immigrants via the Parents and Grandparents Programme (PGP) in January 2022. 1300 new permanent residents arrived in the PGP in January 2022, and 2,065 more did so in January 2023. In keeping with this, Canada expects the aforementioned programme to result in 28,500 additional permanent citizens in 2023. This forecast represents an increase of almost 132% from 2021.

In addition, Canada's Immigration Level Plans 2023–2025 aim to welcome about 465,000 permanent residents by 2023. There were over 50,000 new residents welcomed to Canada, sources claim. This is a 44% increase over the number of immigrants the nation admitted in January of previous year. This immigration objective will include a sizable portion of family sponsorship applications. Around 13,000 new entrants have already been accepted into the nation through the PGP and the children/spouse sponsorship.

How Does This PGP Programme Work?

Canadian citizens and permanent residents are eligible to sponsor the immigration of their parents or grandparents to Canada. If a parent or grandparent is approved under this programme, they will be granted permanent residency in Canada and may ultimately be qualified to apply for Canadian citizenship. To be eligible for this programme, several requirements must be met. Although the programme has been running for a long, it has recently seen a significant surge. The IRCC is yet to release the PGP 2023 specs to the public. Prior to this year, the IRCC employed a lottery system to determine at random which prospective sponsors would get an Invitation to Apply (ITA) via the PGP.
What is the PGP Program's Alternative? 
The PGP can be substituted with the Super Visa. As a result, grandparents and parents of immigrants who become Canadian citizens are now permitted to visit the nation for up to five years following their initial visit without having to reapply for status. With a Super Visa, parents and grandparents will be able to stay in Canada as visits for up to seven years by requesting an extension. They are also allowed to enter Canada repeatedly for a period of 10 years. The Super Visa is used all year round.
