Immigration and Refugee Citizenship Canada have announced that they will revert back to the old system of the Parent Sponsorship program. The old system was first-come-first-serve and the current system is a lottery.

The lottery will be abolished, which means the sponsoring system will become more reliable. It was also announced that the quote of the number of parents will be increased to 20 000 from the current intake of 10 000 applications.
