Default I have PR, can i sponsor my parents to retire in Canada?

Hi all

My canadian wife has sponsered me and i have just got my PR. Can I
sponsor my parents (British parents) to come over to canada to retire?

Or would they not let me sponsor until my 3 year sponsorship period is
over and i am a citizen?

could my wife sponsor her in-laws or would that be tricky if she is
already sponsoring me?

financially, we can show that they are would not be a burden on
canadian health etc as they are quite wealthy. but i know that
sometimes doens't count if they are being sponsored. My father is 63
yrs and my mother 58 yrs.

many thanks

Mike

It is irrelevant how wealthy, but it is important how healthy they are. You can
sponsor them only after you meet minimum income requirement within 12 months
prior to sponsorship application. Your wife can be a co-signer if her income is
substantial enough.

Mr Miller (sorry to barge in on this thread)

Is it just the health criteria that is crucial then? My parents aren't wealthy but they are both healthy. My Dad has mild, recently discovered & now diet controlled Type II diabetes. He is 66. Will this be an issue? They are having their medicals next week. My Mum has a paid job when she gets here (looking after my kids) All they have is pensions - two state pensions from the UK and my Dad's company pension.

Thanks

I'm not a physician nor medical officer at CIC, so I cannot really comment a
lot on medicals - you won't know without going through the entire application
process and medicals.

i know we can only guess but at a guess i would say type II should be ok, my
dad has typeII and it doesn't really place excessive demand on the health
service, just perscriptions of tablets which you pay for and the odd check
up each year. Type I possibly is more demanding with the injections and such
but type II isn't that demanding so personally i think it would be very
unfortunate if that in it's self caused a rejection, although there could
possibly be related conditions that caused more demand.
Remeber the reasons for refusal aren't just that you are ill or have a
condition it's because that condition either posses a threat to the public
health or places excessive demand on the health service.

type 2 diabetes that can be controlled by dietary restrictions and medication will not make them inadmissable, they will most likely be assessed m02 or m03... requiring periodic monitoring of the condition... this is provided ofcourse everything else is hunky dory...
