To get my mum to live with us in Canada on a permanent basis I need to apply for sponsorship, wait for about 5 years and then get her the same permanent resident status I now posess. By that time I hope I will get my citizenship - one must live in Canada for 3 years being a permanent resident to be able to apply for citizenship.

I am currently gathering paperwork needed to apply for sponsorship. It is quite a list - I guess the same size as when I applied for immigration, which makes sense. What I cannot comprehend is why I have to pay $550 now, where they will process her file in 3 years only? I.e. the file will be lying there waiting for its turn. It would make more sense to ask for processing fees when you start processing, wouldn’t it?
