Hi there,

I have heard that the PGP program is about to re-open soon and I would like to apply.

However, I am not able to calculate the salary needed to know if I can sponsor all my family.

I don't understand the calculator's headlines, such as and where do I count myself in all of this.

If someone can help me with the calculations I would be really appreciated.

This is my information -> I got my PR last year and I'm currently working in Quebec.

I would want to sponsor:-

1) My mother, her husband and 2 step-sisters (under 18) - dependants.
2) My father, his wife and 1 step-sister (under 18) - dependants.

How much salary in Quebec do I need to have in order to be able to sponsor 7 + 1(me)?

Appreciated

You can only submit one application at a time. You'll need to chose between your mother's family and your father's family.

If you chose your mother's family first, you will need to meet income requirements for 5 people to qualify. If you chose your father's family, you will need to meet income requirements for 4 people to qualify.

Once you are able to submit the second application, you will need to meet income requirements for 8 people to qualify.

The salary amounts haven't been 100% confirmed yet. We are still waiting for that information to be published.

Thanks sir for the information.

I wanted to know something too, does that salary needs to be for the last 3 years?

I started working in September 2017 as an intern then converted to full time in April 2018.

Thank you.

Since you are living in Quebec, you only need to show income for 1 year.

Thanks again for the help.

Let me know if there is a thread here in the forum that tells step by step what needs to be done to apply.
Discussions are in the Family Sponsorship section of the forum.
