Canada Family Immigration Policy

Canada’s Immigration policy will be undergoing changes that will supposedly make it easier for families to reunite and come to the country.

It will revamp the Family Reunification Program enabling both recent Canadian immigrants and citizens to sponsor their family members to come to Canada.

The sponsored individuals would be considered family class immigrants, rather than economic immigrants.

Canada Visa Requirements Have Changed from January 2019

Under the new system, Canadians will have to apply to sponsor:

  • spouse
  • children
  • parent
  • grandparent

What’s more, a large number of people will be able to submit applications and the quota has been increased to 20,500  from the previous 17,000.

On New Year’s Eve, Canada’s Department of Immigration and Citizenship announced its good news on social media.

In 2016, the Candian government introduced Immigration lottery for giving out family class visas.

It allowed individuals to apply online and later, be randomly selected to apply for visas by lottery.

However, the process is now ending with the new system being launched. The lottery system is being abolished and family visas will be determined based on first come first serve basis.
