Our team of experienced immigration consultants specialize in all types of family sponsorship.
Under Canadian immigration law, a dependent child is defined as an unmarried child who is under the age of 22 and relies on their parent or legal guardian for financial support. Additionally, a child may also be considered dependent if they are over 22 years of age and have been continuously enrolled in full-time studies since before the age of 22, or if they have a physical or mental condition that makes them unable to financially support themselves.
To sponsor your parents to immigrate to Canada, you must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada. You must also meet the eligibility requirements set by the Canadian government, including having the financial means to support your parents and any dependents they may have.
Currently, this program is not accepting applications, but it usually opens once a year.
To sponsor your spouse to Canada, you need to be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident. You also need to be able to prove that you can financially support your spouse and any dependents. The application process can take several months, so it's important to start as soon as possible. If your application is approved, your spouse will be granted permanent residency and can live and work in Canada.
Unfortunately, there is no sponsorship program for siblings. A Canadian citizen or permanent resident can only sponsor his parents, grandparents, spouse or common-law, conjugal partner and dependent children under 22 years old.
There is no specific amount of income that the sponsor must have, however, the program requires that the sponsor is gainfully employed and demonstrates to have enough income to support the person being sponsored.
Unfortunately not. To qualify, the sponsor must be legally married or in a common-law relationship with the person being sponsored. To qualify under common-law, the sponsor and principal applicant must have lived together continuously for at least 12 months.
Yes, of course! The same rules apply to same-sex couples.
