To be eligible to sponsor:
You must be a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident
You must be 18 years of age or older
You must meet or exceed the minimum necessary income requirement for Family Sponsorship
You must sign an undertaking agreement that commits you to provide financial support for your sponsored parents or grandparents and repay any provincial social assistance benefits paid to the sponsored family members for 20 years.
If the sponsor lives in Quebec, an additional undertaking agreement must be signed
Sponsors must provide Notices of Assessment from the CRA to IRCC to prove that they meet the minimum necessary income requirement.
If you do not qualify for Parental PR sponsorship because you do not meet the MNI for the 3 year period, you can apply for a Super Visa as the income required is only for 1 year and it is about 30% lower. Read more about Super Visa.
