I am a Canadian citizen living here with my husband and two kids. We had invited my parents from Pakistan on visitor visa, but our application got rejected on following grounds:

You have not satisfied me that you would leave Canada at the end of your stay as a temporary
resident. In reaching this decision, I considered several factors, including
  • Family ties in Canada and in country of residence
  • You have not provided sufficient documentation to support your / your host's income and assets.
I want to apply for them again, but need help in how can we satisfy these factors. My parents are retired and live alone in Pakistan. My brother and other sister are settled in the UK. My parents have visited them in the UK last year. Most of my mother and father's siblings are settled abroad in Europe and Canada. Probably this is the reason for triggering the family ties in Canada and country of residence objection. My parents are quite happy living in Pakistan and have no intention to settling anywhere abroad. However, they want to keep visiting UK and Canada once a year for few weeks. 

We will be providing more details of my husband's job and earnings to answer the second objection. Can anyone please help how can we satisfy the objection on family ties?

They will need to show proof of strong ties to Pakistan.

"Family ties in Canada and in country of residence"

I think you'll need to provide proofs that they're really your parents.
