2+ years. There is a backlog of applications. If the family qualifies for G5 sponsorship if is highly unlikely that they qualify for a TRV. An RTD is used for protected people already in Canada and who have already had their hearing. The family will have to remain in whatever country they are currently living in.

The processing time within Canada is about 5 months ( in my case ) before the file gets transferred to Canadian embassy overseas. Then the embassy processing time depends on the location.

It is not always quick. It could take a couple of years. All depends on what stage of the process you are at. There is a relatively small yearly quota for private sponsorships.
