Considering moving to Canada to live with daughter and family in Calgary. I'm 76 and my wife is 67. We are both retired

Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: Considering moving to Canada to live with daughter and family in Calgary. I'm 76 and my wife is 67. We are both retired RNs and will have some money from sale of our house in Ecuador plus Social Security from U.S. How long would it take to get Permanent Residency if we apply within Canada and how long if we apply from outside Canada.
JA: What steps have the daughter and your wife taken? Has she filed any paperwork with the U.S. government?
Customer: None yet. Actually, my son-in-law would be sponsor since he was born and raised in Calgary. My daughter has Permanent Residency. We just started talking seriously about this recently.
JA: Have they talked to a lawyer about this?
Customer: No
JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I think that is all.

There are no parental sponsorships right now.

What will happen is January 1 the 2020 pool for parental sponsorships will open. It will be filled in a few days so you have to be ready to submit the application because there are thousands more applicants than there will be room to apply.

If this doesn't work you can come to visit and remain for some time on a supervisa.

Here is all the information you will need:
