So here is my situation. I submitted an interest to sponsor form in 2020. I got the Invite in Jan 2021. However I realized I shouldn't have submitted in the first place because I did not meet the LICO cut off for 2018 (I miscalculated my parents as 2 people, while you need to calculate them as 3 including yourself).

So I ended up not responding to the invite because I didn't qualify in the first place. Now since they are sticking to the 2020 pool, does that mean I wont be considered in the lottery for 2022? I am asking since they reduced the LICO limit now, so it seems unfair that I didn't qualify in 2021 but wont be invited now because I was already invited in Jan 2021?

Maybe I am misunderstanding something here.
You were likely taken out of the pool but nobody knows for sure. You’ll need to confirm with IRCC.

You had a chance and you wasted one spot

No I didn't have a chance as I should not have submitted an interest to sponsor in the first place. But yes the invite could have gone to someone else if that's what you mean.
Most probably the list that they will use is for the people that didn't get the chance to be invited as mentioned in the communication .

So you are sponsoring your parents and you are senior citizens? I think sponsor's birth certificate is needed to proof relationship to parents.
Since you have a lawyer, I think he should provide you those answers.

IRCC is only issuing by lottery those who submitted a profile in 2020. So it is not open to new applicants.

Can anyone tell me when PGP 2022 is going to reopen ??

For the 2022 process, we’ll invite potential sponsors from the remaining pool of interest to sponsor forms submitted in 2020. We’ll send 23,100 invitations to apply to reach our goal of accepting up to 15,000 complete applications.

On October 12, 2022, we started inviting potential sponsors to apply. We’ll send invitations over the course of the next 2 weeks.
