Family reunification is always a top
immigration priority for the government of Canada. In 2018, the Parents and
Grandparents Program (PGP) was opened for ONLY one month with a lottery system
and a quota of 17,000. With the continuously high popularity of the program, 2019
intake system of PGP will be released, and the quota will be increased by
3,000, up to 20,000.

The guarantee period is 20 years after applicants' permanent
residency are approved.

family issues such as divorce, both parents should be in the same application.

From the previous statistics and experenice, we believe that the quota for 2019 will be ran out within 1 month. As Globevisa, we suggest that applicants to have their full
documents ready before it reopens to receive applications due to the limited
quota and an extremely high demand.
