Parents Sponsorship: New Round of Invitations
For the additional invitations, IRCC will use the same randomized list to invite additional potential sponsors to submit an application. These additional potential sponsors will be given 60 calendar days to send in an application to sponsor their parents and grandparents.
It is important to note the following:
Invitations will be sent to potential sponsors beginning on July 31, 2018.
This process will continue over a few days. Anyone who submitted an Interest to Sponsor form in 2018 but has not yet received an invitation is encouraged to check their email and junk mail carefully throughout the week.
Only those who have been randomly selected to submit an application will receive an email.
As of July 31, potential sponsors can confirm whether or not they have been selected by looking up their unique Confirmation Number to compare it with the list of numbers that were randomly selected.
If their number appears, they have been invited to submit their sponsorship application.
If their number doesn’t appear, they have not been selected.
If potential sponsors are not sure what their unique confirmation number is, and want to confirm whether or not they were selected to submit an application, they can:
complete the Check If You Were Selected web form. We’ll respond to potential sponsors within 10 business days to let them know if they were selected or not.
