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.

We wanted to write sincere thanks to John, Devika and Borders Law firm for the help throughout the process. John was extremely kind and thorough and he counselled with suitable options available for me on migration to Canada, documentation submissions, query resolutions, visa processing and continued personal support and follow up until the last step I am beyond grateful for their kindness and service. I will be using them for any changes to our companies immigration needs going forward. Would recommend this firm for anybody blindly looking for immigration help. They would guide you with complete transparency and professionalism. Thank you once again.

Everyone in this office was incredibly supportive and helpful. In a situation that could have been very stressful, they took care of EVERYTHING. Thanks Jenny and Devika for providing exceptional service. Dealt with them for the second case, they kept me in loop for the whole process. Highly recommend using them again which in hindsight I will not have to but if you ever need legal help, they are definitely the people to go to!

It was an exceptional experience with border law firm. They take time to understand client situation and offer the best option. Devika is well knowledgeable lawyer and easy to connect with. John took care of my case and went above and beyond my expectation. He was always there to answer my question. The most responsible lawyer I ever meet, to meet my deadlines, I know he worked many evenings and weekends. I strongly recommend this law firm. In fact no one should go to consultant. My each and every penny spend with this firm is worth more. I am thankful to Devika and John for helping me and my family for our immigration needs.
