I would like some information on how my family and I may sponsor our grandmother who is alone in Sri lanka.

We have all been here in Canada for the past 30+ years and are Canadian citizens.

Please let me know how we may start the process.

Thanks

1. You will have to apply for the Parent/Grandparent lottery with 10K spaces in 2018 when it opens. There were nearly a 100K people who applied in the 2017 lottery. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/sponsor/parents.asp
2. You could apply for a super visa for here, which would allow her to visit Canada for 2 years, note though she would have to pass a medical and have health insurance for that period. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/supervisa.asp
