Got my sponsorship approval letter today and it says that file has been transferred to Mississauga office.
Also it asks to submit these following documents for faster process.

Please note that the following documentation is required for your sponsored family members. If not already included in your application, please obtain and submit as soon as possible:
 Passport/Travel Document: Your relative must submit a copy of their passport. If your relative's passport has expired or will expire within the next 12 months, please have them apply for and submit a copy of their new passport with a validity of 12 months or more. Please ensure to include all pages of the passport.
 Biometrics (if applicable): On July 31st, 2018, biometrics became a requirement for some IRCC applicants. If your relatives are required to complete biometrics, they would have received a request for fees and an instruction letter with details on how to submit biometrics. If they have yet to submit biometrics, they should do so immediately.
Biometrics requirements can be found on our website:
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/biometrics.asp
 Police Certificate: For the principal applicant and dependant spouse (if applicable), please
provide police certificates from:
 The country where they currently live; and
 Any country they have lived for six months or more (if applicable).
Your relative is required to obtain the police certificate from that country's law enforcement authorities. Please send a copy of the original police certificate to this office as soon as they receive it.
Instructions to obtain Police Certificates can be found on our website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/security/police-cert/index.asp.
 Country Specific Requirements: Please refer to the country specific requirements listed for spouses, as these documents are applicable to parents and grandparents.
Country specific requirements can be found on our website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/spouse.asp
 Supplementary Information - Your Travels (IMM 5562): The principal applicant and all family members included in the application who are 18 years of age or older must complete this form.
 Details of Military Service - IMM 5546 (if applicable): Complete this form for anyone included on the application who has ever held a high ranking/senior official government position or served in the military, army, defence or police unit, (including National Service), and submit a copy of the military card/booklet, including blank pages, if applicable.
 CV/Resume: Please provide a CV/Resume for the principal applicant and dependent spouse (if applicable) detailing education and employment information from the age of 18.
In order to facilitate faster processing, please send these documents by email.

I got a similar letter today too. I am sponsoring my Mother who is currently with me here in Canada on Visitor Visa. What does this document mean? Also, My mother has not received any communication to submit any of the aforesaid documents yet. Please help!

Hi,

I have received email from CIC with the following content:

"Passport/Travel Document: Your relative must submit a copy of their passport. If your
relative's passport has expired or will expire within the next 12 months, please have them apply
for and submit a copy of their new passport with a validity of 12 months or more.
Please ensure to include all pages of the passport."

What does "include all pages of the passport" - does cic needs only passport details and stamped pages or even blank pages.
Entire booklet: stamped n unstamped...also check validity of the passport..it needs to b atleast 12 months

Hi @robertp @YULIA-2016,

I got a letter requesting for Biometrics yesterday. Today got an email that stating that the conditions for eligibility has been met for family sponsorship.

What is the next step in progress? When will we get the request for medicals?

Apparently I would need my parents to get Police Clearance for India and Canada. How can I get police clearance certificates from Canada when they are in India? Do they have to make a trip to Canada to get the police clearance completed in Canada?


thanks,
edmpr
Medicals n pcc request can come after Biometric request
Why do you feel they need PCC for Canada..??

In my understanding yes as per the following statement

Any country they have lived for six months or more (if applicable).

You can send webform query to clearify.
