    Posted: 05 Jan 2017 at 4:28pm
Hello all, it's been ages since I have visited this website. I found these forums helpful when I was applying for Work Permits / PR etc. for myself and my wife. That was back in the days (almost a decade ago) and it’s been a couple of years since my family and I have been living in Canada as Citizens.

I have “expressed my interest" (completed the online form on Jan 3) in sponsoring my parents under the new format established by CIC in 2017.

What are your thoughts on this new process? While they have increased the quota from 5000 to 10,000 it is a bit of a gamble.

I also don't like open ended phrases used “Step 3: Soon after the intake closes on February 2, 2017, we will randomly select 10,000 people…”

What does “soon after" mean in terms of time? A day? A week? A month? Or more?

Thoughts?

has anybody received any email communication from CIC?

After completing the form I was given a confirmation on the screen, but never received an email (CIC didnt specify that they will email after receiving our form)

Moreover, I do know that CIC will email in any case (lucky draw or NOT) after choosing/inviting 10,000 applications.

I was just getting anxious so that is why I wanted to confirm if someone has received any email communication from CIC or not. (I keep thinking I might have typed my email address incorrectly!)

Hi, thank you for opening this discussion board for parent sponsorship 2017. I submitted mine too for my father and didn't get a confirmation in my email. 
and no, I haven't gotten any email yet from CIC . I'm feeling anxious everyday for this. Unhappy
