Parents and Grandparents Program – Check If You Were Selected

If you submitted an Interest to Sponsor web form between January 3, 2017 and February 2, 2017, and are unclear whether you’ve been selected to send us an application, use this tool to check your status. This will confirm if you were randomly selected to apply or not.

Earlier this year, we invited 10,000 individuals to submit an application to sponsor their parents and grandparents by August 4, 2017. Since we didn’t receive 10,000 complete applications, we invited a second round of potential sponsors to submit an application.

If you were already selected during the first round of invitations, you were not invited again.

Responses will only verify whether you were part of the second round of invitations.

How to check if you were selected:

  • Fill out the fields below with the same information that you submitted in the Interest to Sponsor web form.
  • If you e-mailed us a correction to the information you submitted in the Interest to Sponsor web form, please submit your information with the correction (not what you had initially submitted). Corrections were accepted between January 3, 2017 and February 2, 2017.

After you submit this form, you will:

  • Get a confirmation page confirming we’ve received your form.
  • Receive a reply within 10 business days letting you know your invitation status.

* Note: if you can’t fill out the form online due to a disability, please contact us by telephone and we will arrange for you to fill out a paper form.
