Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) did not receive the 10,000 complete applications for the Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship Program last August 4, 2017. Because of this, the Government of Canada will have a second batch of emails to send to potential sponsors to submit an application for the PGP program. These additional potential sponsors are randomly selected like what they did on the 1st batch last January 2017. The second round of invitations will mean a second chance for many potential sponsors who were not invited in the first round.
Those who will be invited on the second draw will have until December 8, 2017, to submit their complete sponsorship applications to IRCC. According to IRCC, an invitation to apply will be sent to randomly selected sponsors beginning on September 6, 2017. The process will continue over a few days and make sure to check your email and junk mail carefully throughout the week.
There will be a unique Confirmation Number for those who will be selected on the second draw beginning September 06. If the 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.
