IRCC Minister Ahmed Hussen announced major changes to the parental sponsorship program. Currently, parental sponsorship applications are capped at 10,000 per year and operate on a random lottery system. The fickle and unfair nature of random selections resulted in a barrage of complaints over the last few years, prompting the Liberal government to reverse course and return to a system similar to what it used to be prior to the Harper government. Starting in 2019, intake of new files will be capped at 20,000. Applicants will still be required to submit an expression of interest and wait for an invitation to apply, with applications processed on a first-come, first served basis. The government is also promising to roll out additional changes, promising to streamline application forms and enhance client experience.

At Borders Law Firm, we are pleased to see the end of the arbitrary lottery system, which was plainly unfair. We also support an annual limit of applications, which will allow the government to control the amount of resources it needs to process applications in a timely fashion, as well as controlling downstream effects, such as the impact on our health care system from an influx of aging parents. The new policy is a win for both immigrants anxious to bring their parents to Canada and for the country as a whole.

I have worked with Jenny Mao over the past year and I am happy to say that she has helped me out immensely and I am extreme grateful for not only her professionalism, but for her hard work and determination. I highly reccomend Borders Law Firm. From my experience, they are the best in the GTA.

My PR Application was taking long time and finally had a query on my case. That is when I approached Border's Law. Devika and Brendan handled my case very professionally with extra care.

Devika and John were excellent. They understood how this process would change my life and helped me get to the US. John was extremely kind and thorough. When my employer in the US ended up trying to take advantage of me, they helped me transfer my visa to a new employer and had so much empathy for my situation and now I have a job in California that makes me so happy while helping others. I am beyond grateful for their kindness and service. I will be using them for any changes to my status going forward.

Our biggest dilemma while researching for an Immigration Consultant was someone we could trust and that could manage our application well. We are so glad to have found Borders Law Firm. Devika gave us exceptional guidance due to which we got ICT Work Permit approval. Big thanks and appreciation for Jenny Mao for such professionalism and dexterity shown while handling our application. Kudos to BLF team for their superb work and simply for the trustworthiness they have ..… Best Wishes !
