As of November 5th, 2011 (last Saturday), Citizenship and Immigration Canada will not accept any sponsorship applications to sponsor parents or grandparents until further notice or for 24 months (until November 4th, 2013) because the waiting period for parents’ and grandparents’ sponsorships is currently longer than 4 years.

All applications received by Centralized Processing Centre – Mississauga after November 5th, 2011 will be returned to the applicants. Only those applications received by CPC-M before November 4th, 2011 at 5 p.m. will be processed continuously.
