The Canadian Immigration Service announced that it would select 30,000 applicants who meet the qualifications for about two weeks from September 23 to October 7. Looking at immigration invited by parents and grandparents in 2020, 10,000 applicants who applied for pre-registration for about three weeks from October 13 to November 7, 2020 were immediately selected, but due to the delay in COVID-19, 10,000 were selected in early January 2021.
As mentioned above for a while, the unusual part of this selection is that this year's selection will not be newly received in 2021 but will only be selected from October to November 2020, that is, among applicants who applied for pre-selection.
And looking at one of the most important applicant qualifications, the minimum required income (MNI) requirements, this income reporting period is from 2018 to 2020, especially the 2020 income standard excludes the addition of 30% of low income cut-off (LICO) to prevent applicants from being disadvantaged for income losses during the pandemic. For example, in order to apply for parents and grandparents as a four-member family, the minimum income is $60,271 in 2018 and $61,209 in 2019, but in 2020, it is $48,167, considering the decline in income from the pandemic. In other words, even if your income in 2020 is lower than in 2018 and 2019, you can meet the qualifications for inviting parents and grandparents.
For reference, the minimum required income (MNI) varies depending on the number of families. Cross income, or income before tax (2018-2020), is a condition of $49,641 / $50,414 / $39,672 over the past three years, and $60,271 / $61,209 / $48,167 and $6,358 / $69,630 /5 if the number of people is four. For reference, income can add up the applicant's income as well as the spouse's or cohabitation's income.
At this time, the way to calculate the number of families is to combine yourself, the family you currently support, and the family you will invite through immigration invited by parents and grandparents. For example, if the applicant is single and invites a father or mother, you can calculate on a three-member family basis, but if the applicant already has a spouse and one child and is planning to invite a father or mother, the required family income should be calculated on the basis of five.
The qualifications for the remaining applicants must be Canadian citizens aged 18 or older and permanent residents. And Quebec's minimum required income is conducted on a separate basis, so you should check the income table only for Quebec, not the existing minimum required income table.
When you receive an invitation from the Immigration Bureau, check the document checklist provided by the Immigration Office, fill out the application carefully, and submit the application while paying the fee, and all applications will be completed. After that, if approved through document screening, selected parents and grandparents will receive permanent residency in Canada, and from then on, they will be able to receive free health care and all permanent residency-related benefits equally in Canada.
However, even if you haven't been invited, it's not that you don't have a chance, but you can try again next time, so you'll get good results if you prepare and proceed according to the next opening time.
