    Can you provide the link to the new portal for visitor visa application? Is this the one that you are referring to? https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/account.html

    Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2021

    I failed in paper based FIFO, failed in online FIFO (my web browser froze, so did my with my wife, we both were at our office , but good thing is my colleague was able to get it), and failed in this lottery for more than one time since 2014 (with some gap in between).. despite the flaws (being...

    Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2021

    Its not bashing .. its a temporal frustration. A normal person would definitely gets pissed off if his/her life decision is based on a helm of a lottery draft. In my opinion, this kind of frustration will last few days, or even bit longer if this is the first 1-3 times. I still remember when...

    Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2021

    First of all let me be clear there is no fair system at all.. any system discriminate one group of people and favor other. Below statements are just out of my curiosity, and my be for the shake of an argument, which I have organized as per the "factor" you have categorized Age: why would...

    Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2021

    It would have been nice to you, your friend and other eligible sons/daughters if you and your friend asked this question before submitting EoI. Now he has already submitted the EoI, gotten an invitation and potentially wasted a spot (which would have potentially used by an eligible one), why not...

    Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2021

    No one knows, but some basic facts are Prior to 2020, IRCC used to communicate updates normally on January of every year, open EoI on first quatar and invite to apply on the same year. (long long ago, they would ask us to send paper based application on or after Jan 1 and compete with each...

    You can try applying... seems like you think yourself a special person, as you submitted EoI despite the fact that you knew you were not eligible (you knew you were not eligible and still you submitted, needless to say you think you are a special). You should not have submitted EoI Now you...

    Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2021

    Your point is valid if we were to assume that Canada (Canadian govt) brought us here. In fact, my take on this is.. people like me (an economic immigrant) choose by our consensus to immigrate to Canada (amongst many countries). For me acceptance of my desire to immigrate here is the package that...

    Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2021

    Exactly, we did the same. They do visit us regularly, though they never said explicitly to us, we understand their sentiments they would like to spend their entire 65+ yrs life with their child (or more with kids), wherever its possible. They are in their mid to late 50’s and we have promised we...

    Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2021

    To be honest, I prefer lottery than FIFO (this my own opinion based on experience we have with both the system). Moreover, this time I was very hopeful, more than before because of 10K+40K, that my wife would get invitation. With that high expectations, we even have everything ready from...

    Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2021

    I agree with you Scylla.. i used to hate first in first serve (still hate it, I travelled to YYZ in a cold Jan morning to make sure my package does not spent extra time on transit) .. it was not fair to those who do not live in a big city, where fedex/dhl wait some hours/days to collect enough...

    Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2021

    I agree with you- I do not I have any feeling for the people who are willing to cheat (whatever is their objective, main is to be with their loved ones), typical examples of this cheat is lying, tax fraud, even marriage of convenience e.t.c. But I do feel for their parents who are eager to be...

    Question about applying for sponsorship for parents

    If you did not find that info the provided link then no one here in this forum knows. So wait and as mentioned somewhere in the link says, keep on eye on IRSS social media or IRCC notices (google it, you will find) to know what will happen in the future for PGP.

    This could be one reason for zero update yesterday, not sure if their online system also includes server/system to draw PGP though

    Parents and Grandparents Sponsorship 2021

    This is news to me. I guess what you referring here is salary that you received which comes from government grant, e.g., NSERC stategic, in that case yours is salary that is taxable, which counted towards minimum income for family sponsorship. No where in the...
