Sorry I think you misunderstood, the hardship is not from escaping the US but since both of us are working and with the baby it will be very hard to struggle with work and childcare. We are not earning high enough to hire a full time nanny and we have no relatives here.
MOST canadians here DO NOT have live-in nannies. MOST families here have both parents working and they have to arrange their work around dropping off and picking up their kids to and from daycares. THIS IS NORMAL Canadian life. Very few are lucky enough to get some help from parents or relatives but it's not very common. And even when they can, they won't do that to burdan their parents for FULL TIME childcare. Your wish of getting your parents over to replace daycare isn't really a valid ground for H&C.

The reason we are moving out of US is because there is no hope to get a greencard with our country of origin due to long wait time and the H1B visa has a limit on how long you can stay.
Not to sound like an a $$ but if you think bringing up kids is a hardship, half of Canada is in the same boat. Its called parenting and something you have to consider before having a child. but i shouldn't be the one telling you all this.

Perhaps look at Super Visa for your parents for the time being. They can stay for upto 2 years at a time and help you out.

If you have both sets of parents available to help out, It could actually work out for you for the next 4 years (even longer if you alternate their visits)

It just might be better for you to withdraw your application for 2017 voluntarily and re apply for 2018. with CIC, it is usually very black and white. If you are short even by a few hundred, rules are rules and i doubt if application processing officers are at the discretion to make decisions on the fly; only appeal court judges most likely can make those kinds of decisions.

So, as others have mentioned, you could wait till your previous application is denied, then appeal, and wait for appeal court decision which will most likely take longer than just withdrawing your current application, and then re-apply in 2018 where you meet all the requirements.

IRCC has completely screwed up the lottery last year by not asking for quailifications of the sponsors and as a result ten of thousands of non qualifying people was selected to apply out of their quota of 10,000. They did not appologize but instead did a second draw in September with the same mistake. If they continue with the same systems as last year, the chance of any legitimate applicant being invited is close to zero. We should demand public apology by Minister Hussen as this problem is undermining confidence of Canadians in the efficiency and competence of the government.
This shall be dealt politically. Newspaper/Media is going to be helpful. Media helped to bring lottery system in place last year but CIC did not do good job of forming a good system. Pls reachout to a number of papers especially in Ottawa.

You sponsor your parents, he sponsors his....separate forms. Make sure you meet the requirements to sponsor before you apply, in particular the LICO requirements or face the wrath of the other forum members.

So you can co-sponsor your husband and vise-versa. If you both intend to sponsor (and expect to be picked for both parents) you would need to meet LICO for your family size.....you, your husband, any children, your parents and his parents (family size of 6 plus any children) So your LICO requirement would be for 6 people, plus 30% for the 3 previous tax years (2014, 2015, 2016) before you qualify.

Hi All,

I would like to know If I could sponsor my parents in 2018. The only concern I have is my 3 year stay in Canada.


I became a PR on July 8th 2015 and I started working on July 13th 2015 with a annual salary $ 85000 (So 2015 earning was around $ 42000). I'm single and no dependant partner.



I still have this job and would like to know if I could apply for my mum and dad in 2018. I will have 3 T4's by end of February 2018 and I would complete 3 years only by July 2018.



Reason i'm getting my parents : We are three siblings all in 3 different countries ( US, UK and Canada)My parents are getting old, and believe me, when I get a call from home, say at 11am Canada time which is midnight in India, I get a mini heart attack, its that anxiety. I think its a price you pay for immigrating but I like o have my parents here.


Please suggest!
Same here i ll get 3rd T4 in Feb 2018.

Yes, 3 years noa is a must. Please don't apply if you do not meet the eligibility because people will be upset and you will be wasting your time.
