sponsor parents to Canada 2019

Discussion in 'Family Class Sponsorship' started by lanxingma, Sep 25, 2018.

  1. Hi guys

    I had a quick question. I recently moved to Canada as a Permanent Resident from the US (Sept 2018) which means I don't have 3 years worth of filed Taxes to show. Are they mandatory or can I present documentation to show that my current income meets the Minimum Necessary Income levels? Would it help to show my Taxes filed in the US for the last few years. Any information would be helpful. I know that PGPS 2019 hasn't opened up yet, but i was hoping to gather as much documentation possible just to be prepared.

  2. Hi Guys,

    I have question regarding parent sponsorship in 2019
    i knew that a form as express of interest has to be filled electronically probably by beginning of Jan 2019
    but , I wonder. Is that it? Or would be there any other information or document they ll need me to submit at the time of this letter ?

    Pls advice I dont have info about that And nothing in the IRCC website yet!!

    Thanks a lot :)
    God bless
  3. Hi,

    I believe you can't use international income/tax declaration as a proof of income for the past 3 years. If I remember well from last year application it has to be an income earned inside Canada or after becoming a resident.
  4. Yes - they are mandatory. Only income from Canada counts. You cannot use your US income or US tax returns. You will have to wait a few more years before you will qualify to sponsor your parents for PR.
  5. Is the form for interest to sponsor PGP 2019 online yet. I though I saw something that said it was now live, but I can't find the form. Thanks.
  6. No - it's not online.
  7. do you have any idea when the form will be available? I tried to search for information, but I couldn't find it anywhere else
    happy new year! it is the time that get ready to apply for parents immigration. does anyone know what day starts to apply online?
  9. PGP 2019 Interest to Sponsor - I have read on the Cohen lawyer's website that it is advisable to collect all necessary documents together even before you know that you are successful in being invited to fill in an application form . Is this viable and would we have to involve a lawyer and pay him/her even though we don't know if we will be using their services. I thought successful invitees had 90 days to get everything together, Cohen's are saying it's only 60 days.
  10. I don’t think we need a lawyer.
  11. You can use international income as a proof of income for the past 3 years. The catch is that you were a Canadian tax payer for those tax years. Your memory was wrong. It can be income earned outside Canada.
  12. Does anyone know if the application will be online or paper format?
