can a refugee sponsor his parents

Best answer


Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has a program called Sponsorship of Parents or Grandparents, butit is difficult to access. This program could be a good longer term option, or an option if the parents or grandparents are not refugees themselves (making them ineligible for refugee sponsorship).
