you should have checked income requirements BEFORE you submit the interest to sponsor.
this is on the 2020 interest to sponsor form:

What happens next

After the closing date, we'll randomly choose potential sponsors and invite
them to apply to sponsor their parents and grandparents. If we invite you
to apply, you need to meet all eligibility criteria. For example, you need to
meet minimum income requirements, live in Canada and be at least 18
years old.

Add to add: 2019 is the norm: minimum income requirement = LICO + 30% This had always been the requirement until covid hit.
IRCC lowered the requirements by not adding 30% for 2020 and 2021. This is a one-time special treatment for covid. They can announce it to end anytime. You didn't meet the requirement on the year you submitted interest to sponsor (2017, 2018, 2019) and you don't meet the requirement this year when you are invited (2019, 2020, 2021). Don't waste your money and time on it.

Income required for the 3 tax years right before the day you apply (sponsors applying in 2022)
Total number of people you’ll be responsible for2021Footnote12020Footnote12019Footnote1
2 people$32,898$32,270$41,007
3 people$40,444$39,672$50,414

I read those online and compared to my T4 slip each year, 3 people, only 2019 is under that numbers. so what do you mean by "You didn't meet the requirement on the year you submitted interest to sponsor (2017, 2018, 2019) and you don't meet the requirement this year when you are invited (2019, 2020, 2021)." it total needs 6 years income?

How can 2019, 2020 and 2021 be 6 years? You need to meet the minimum requirement for EACH of the 3 years and continue to meet income requirement until your application is completed.

"only 2019 is under" is not an excuse. When is doesn't meet the requirement, it doesn't meet it.

You meet LICO or you don’t for 2019, 2020 and 2021. You don’t meet LICO for 2019 so you are not eligible but seem determined to apply.

:(
That means they fill the spots?
Im for waiting for 7 yrs to get picked. I don’t get it In what base they has selected the candidates . Unqualified people they are selecting and rejecting.
some priority base they need to consider.
my parents are already old. so frustrating.

Hey, Keep calm and Get the super visa. Before I was ready to apply for super visa for my family members, then just suddenly and surprisingly got the invitation. Anyway, In my case, let my family members decide to go for it or not. They still can get super visa even rejecting. Don't be so down. Stay positive everyone!!

Got Invite from IRCC.But both Parents' passports are expired as I gave up all the hope. Was trying for last 11 years. Tried to renew the parents' passports but got on a waiting list for renewal.
Can I send IRCC the Expired passport photocopies? As the Processing time is 37 months, by then the Paasorts will be renewed.
Also, i did not put my Grandma's info when i submit Interest to Sponsor. Can I Add her now when i send the application for my parents? Thankyou everyone.
