Family Sponsorship Visa
The Government of Canada is strongly committed to keeping families together and hence, allows families to be sponsored for Canadian immigration. If a Canadian permanent resident or citizen has a family member who wants to immigrate to Canada, the citizen can sponsor to do so. Reuniting the family remains one of the pillars of the Canadian immigration system.
Canadian citizens or permanent residence holders can sponsor the dependent family members. When the dependents attain the Canadian PR status, they can live, study or work in Canada.
There are certain criteria that the sponsor has to ensure to fulfill. The requirements are that the sponsor should be:
- Canadian citizen or should hold PR status
- Should be at least 18 years of age
- Responsible for supporting your dependents financially.
- Not charged with any serious offense.
The dependent family member seeking sponsorship must be a:
- Spouse, common-law or conjugal partner
- Dependent child
- Sibling, nephew, niece, or grandchild under 18 years who is unmarried and whose parents are deceased
The dependents sponsored must be living outside Canada, or dependents are residing legally in Canada temporarily, for example with a work or study permit.
The family sponsorship application is paper-based. The hard-copy application must be prepared and submitted to IRCC by mail or courier.
Family Sponsorship and Express Entry
Express Entry allows parents and children to apply for permanent resident status simultaneously. If a person qualifies for an Express Entry-aligned program, they can simply include their spouse/partner and any dependent children on their initial application.
In such cases, this helps in removing the requirement to sponsor the family members later on and allows families to stay together more easily.
