Grandparenting Now Closed
The grandparenting route window closed at 11:59 p.m. on March 31, 2017. On top of all the applications already submitted, since January 1, 2017 we have received over 2,400 grandparenting applications. To all those who successfully submitted a grandparenting application, thank you for your submission – your application is now in the queue for processing.
Due to the significantly large volume of applications undergoing review, there will be an increased timeframe between the application submission date and the start of a review. Staff may contact applicants with questions once the review of their application begins. If you submitted an application, please monitor your CRPO user account or your e-mail inbox regularly for the notifications we send alerting you to a system message, and respond to any questions or requests for additional information as quickly as possible. To facilitate the processing of applications:
- If a staff member has questions after the first review of the application, they will send a detailed message to the user’s online account addressing the concerns.
- If more information is required after receiving the response, a staff member will follow-up for a second and final time.
- If we do not receive a substantive response within three months of the date of the second request for clarification, or the two attempts fail to result in satisfactory information, the application may then be referred to a panel of the Registration Committee for further consideration and possible refusal.
We thank you in advance for your patience while you await the outcome of the review of your application.
