Parent Sponsoring About Income Requirement

The only family size that matters, is that on the day you submit the actual application. This is the family size you must meet for 3 previous years.

So if it’s you + spouse + 1 kid + 1 parent = 4 at the time you apply, then you need to meet LICO for 4 in 3 previous years from application date. This means adding family members before submitting the app, can make previous tax years suddenly no longer qualifying.

IRCC wants to see you have 3 consecutive years of income that is applicable to your family when you actually apply. They don’t care if you have lower income for a family size that is not relevant to your app.

After you qualify and submit the app, future changes to family size only count for years going forward, not the 3 previous years.
