Family Sponsorship

Immigration to Canada based on Family Sponsorship  

General background

Family Class Sponsorship is another great opportunity to become a Permanent Resident of Canada and reunite with your closest family. Canada is known for honoring family values, and through this Program demonstrates the commitment to reuniting families from all over the world and keeping them together. Through Canada’s family sponsorship policy, permanent residents and Canadian citizens over the age of 18 are able to sponsor specific family members so they may obtain their permanent Canadian residency. Canada immigration policies state that you be will able to live, attend school and become employed in Canada prior to obtaining your permanent residency. Please note, sponsors are financially responsible for their relative when they arrive to Canada.

Who is the program for?

  • Spouses/Common-Law Partners
  • Parents/Grandparents
  • Dependent children
  • Brothers or sisters, nephews or nieces, granddaughters or grandsons who are orphaned and 18 years or younger who are neither married nor in a common law-relationship
  • Another relative of any age or in any relationship however, specific conditions apply

There are certain requirements to the candidates involved in this process.

To be a Sponsor:

  • A candidate must be 18 years of age or older
  • A candidate must be a Canadian Citizen or a Permanent Resident
  • A candidate must demonstrate enough income to provide for basic needs for themselves and their family members
  • If you intend to sponsor your close family members, you should keep in mind that legally the financial responsibility for their well-being will fall on your shoulders for the prescribed period of time.

For example, the length of the undertaking – the time you are held financially responsible for the sponsored person(s) – is set as follows:

For Spouse/Common-Law Partner:  3 years
For Parents/Grandparents:20 years
For Dependent Children:     Under 13 years of age – 10 years
  Under 13 years of age – 10 years
Over 22 years of age – 3 years

There is also a requirement for the sponsor to reside in Canada permanently. A Canadian Citizen must show that he intends to reside in Canada when the sponsored person(s) receives permanent residence, if the sponsor lives outside of Canada. As to the Permanent Residents of Canada living abroad, they cannot sponsor anyone at all.

Separate individual requirements may be applied to candidates, depending on the Sponsorship Program.
