New Parent and Grandparent program re-opens January 2, 2014

Mississauga, May 10, 2013 — Citizenship  and Immigration Canada will re-open the Parent and Grandparent (PGP) program for  new applications on January 2, 2014, by which time the backlog and wait times  in the program are expected to have been cut in half.

“The  Action Plan for Faster Family Reunification is on track to meet the goals of  cutting in half the backlog and wait times in the Parent and Grandparent  program,” said Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney.  “It is very important that we continue to make progress and not return to the  old broken system with wait times as long as a decade—that would be  unfair to families.”

Phase  II of the Action Plan for Faster Family Reunification will provide even faster  processing times, reduce the backlog further, prevent future backlogs, ensure  that families have the financial means to support those they sponsor, and  protect the interests of taxpayers.

First – In 2012 and  2013, Canada will admit 50,000 parents and grandparents as permanent residents.  This represents the highest level of parents and grandparents admitted in 20  years. In 2014, Canada will maintain high levels of admissions for parents and  grandparents.

Second – The Super Visa will become permanent  and will continue to provide flexibility for families who access the 10-year  multiple-entry visa, allowing visa holders to remain in Canada up to two years  at a time. Over 15,000 Super Visas have been issued since the program’s launch  in December 2011 with approval rates averaging 86 percent.

Third – New qualifying criteria for permanent residency sponsorship  of parents and grandparents will increase the financial responsibility of  sponsors to ensure they have the means to support those they sponsor, while  limiting the program’s cost to taxpayers and Canada’s strained health and  social programs.

Fourth – 5,000 new sponsorship  applications will be accepted in the program in 2014. By accepting 5,000  applications in 2014 while maintaining high levels, the government will be able  to further reduce the remaining backlog so that families can be reunited more  quickly.

“These  new criteria ensure sponsored family members are well supported by their  sponsors throughout their time in Canada,” said Minister Kenney. “The  redesigned Parent and Grandparent program reunites families faster while  respecting Canadian taxpayers and the limited resources for health and social  programs.”

Canada  has one of the most generous family reunification programs in the world. The  United States, United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand do not allow  grandparents to be sponsored at all or only in very limited circumstances, and they  have very restrictive criteria for the sponsorship of parents.

The  amendments to the Immigration and Refugee  Protection Regulations that are being proposed will be pre-published in the Canada Gazette (Part I) and the  public will be able to comment for a 30-day period.

主要的变化在这里的第三、第四点有介绍:

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/dep ... 013/2013-05-10b.asp

Backgrounder — Action Plan for Faster Family Reunification: Phase II

With the backlog and wait times being cut in half, Phase II of that Action Plan for Faster Family Reunification will build on that success with further backlog reduction and even faster processing times.

First: Maintain high admissions

In 2012 and 2013, Canada will admit 50,000 parents and grandparents. This represents the highest level in 20 years. In 2014, Canada will maintain high levels of admissions for parents and grandparents.

This will help reunite more families and enable further backlog reduction.

Second: Make the Super Visa a permanent program

The Super Visa will become a permanent program and will continue to provide flexibility for families who can access the 10-year multiple-entry visa that allows parents and grandparents to remain in Canada up to two years at a time. The Super Visa is very popular. Over 1,000 Super Visas are issued each month, with over 15,000 Super Visas issued since its launch in December 2011 and approval rates remain high at 86 percent.

Third: New qualifying criteria for permanent residency sponsorship

New qualifying criteria ensure that sponsors have the financial means to support parents and grandparents, while reducing the net costs to Canadian taxpayers by leading to less reliance on health care and social programs.

The new qualifying criteria include:

• Increase minimum necessary income (MNI) for sponsoring parents and grandparents equivalent by 30 percent: The current MNI does not accurately reflect the increased costs associated with being financially responsible for elderly parents and grandparents. The modest increase in the MNI will ensure sponsors are able to meet the financial needs of their sponsored parents and grandparents, which will reduce the net costs to Canadian taxpayers.

• Lengthen period for demonstrating the MNI from one year to three years:  Individuals who seek to sponsor their parents and grandparents and their accompanying family members will be required to demonstrate that they meet the new income threshold for the three consecutive tax years prior to submitting the sponsorship application. Requiring prospective sponsors of parents and grandparents to provide evidence of income over a three-year period, as opposed to 12 months, will help ensure sponsors have income stability and the financial means to provide for the basic needs of their parents and grandparents. It will also guarantee that prospective sponsors are contributing to the public services their sponsored family members are likely to use (for example, provincial health care, public transportation, etc.).

• Evidence of income confined to documents issued by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA): Individuals who seek to sponsor their parents and grandparents and their accompanying family members will be required to demonstrate that they meet the new income threshold for three consecutive years using CRA notices of assessment. This will mean that officials could spend less time reviewing and verifying documents and could help speed up processing times even further. It will also guarantee that prospective sponsors are contributing to the public services their sponsored family members are likely to use (for example, provincial health care, public transportation, etc.).

• Extend the sponsorship undertaking period to 20 years instead of 10 years:  The current sponsorship undertaking period for parents and grandparents is 10 years.  Individuals who seek to sponsor their parents and grandparents and accompanying family members will be required to commit to a lengthened sponsorship undertaking period of 20 years. This means sponsors and co-signers (if applicable) will be responsible for repaying any provincial social assistance benefits paid to the parent and grandparent and their accompanying family members for 20 years. A lengthened sponsorship undertaking will protect Canadian taxpayers and ensure sponsors assume more financial responsibility for the basic needs of their parents and grandparents over a longer period of time, as well as for health care costs not covered by provincial health care (for example, eye care, dental care, mobility aids, etc.).  

• Changing the maximum age of dependents: The maximum age of dependents will be set at 18 years of age and under for all immigration programs, including the Parent and Grandparent program. This is in line with the standard age of majority in Canada. Those over the age of 18 can apply to visit or immigrate to Canada independently. There will be an exception for individuals, regardless of age, who are financially dependent on their parents due to a mental or physical disability.

Fourth: Accepting 5,000 applications in 2014

By accepting 5,000 applications in 2014 while maintaining high levels of admissions of parents and grandparents, the government will be able to further reduce the remaining backlog so that families can be reunited even more quickly. Opening the program to an unlimited number of applications as was done in the past will grow the backlog again and increase wait times, undoing the progress made to date.

中文报章报道:

联邦移民部今天(10日)宣布,将于2014年1月2日重启父母及祖父母团聚类移民(PGP)申请。

2014年加拿大将接受5千个担保家庭成员的申请,担保人的资格条件大幅提高,除了收入证明从1年延长到3年,而且必须是由联邦税局提供的证明,担保时间从10年延长至20年,令被担保人享受加拿大各项福利的时间大大延后。

康尼表示,2012和2013年加拿大接收5万名家庭团聚申请人成为加拿大永久居民,为20年来最多。

超级签证将成为永久性的制度,父母及祖父母可以申请比较灵活的10年签证,每次最多可以在加拿大逗留2年。2011年底推出超级签证以来,已经有1万5千人获批来到加拿大,签证成功率高达86%。

移民部同时公布了对申请者的要求:

——担保金将在原来的基础上上涨30%;担保金的数字是一个变化的数字,其基准是最低收入要求(Minimum Necessary Income),目前,对于一对夫妇,两个孩子的家庭,申请两名长者团聚,那么未来,家庭人数将是6人,要求一年的家庭收入为$55,378加元,新政下将上涨至$71,992加元;(关于此段的解释,可以参见移民部的说明:http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/media/backgrounders/2013/2013-05-10b.asp )

最低收入要求每年都会有不同,最新的数字到2013年12月31日有效,所以数字仅供参考。如果想知道担保金的数字,用下面Table 3的数字乘以1.3即可(http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/applications/guides/5196ETOC.asp#5196E9)。

——以往申请人只需提供一年的证明,证明收入超过担保金的最低要求,现在要求提供连续3年的证明,证明收入均超过最低担保金的要求;

——收入证明的文件需用CRA的收入证明文件,以加快审理进度,未来非CRA的文件将不予受理;

——目前担保人对团聚的父母或祖父母担保时间为10年,现要求担保20年;

另外,可随行未成年子女的年龄,由原来的22岁降低至18岁。
也就是说,原来你可以担保父母和22岁以下的弟、妹一同移加,新政策下只能担保18岁以下的弟、妹。

根据这个新政, 那普通的探亲签证现在还好不好申请? 打算今年先给父母申请普通的10年多次往返签证, 不知道成功率有多少? 超级签证目前实在达不到那个收入要求
