Family sponsorship cases help to reunite families in Canada. We’ve worked with many permanent residents and citizens who are looking to bring their children, spouses or parents to live with them in Canada. There are certain requirements that both the sponsor and sponsored person must fulfill in order for their sponsorship application to be granted.
If you are legally married to a foreign spouse, you may sponsor them to receive permanent residency in Canada. The immigration authorities will need a document like a marriage certificate which shows that your marriage is legal not only in Canada but also in the country where the certificate was issued.
Common-Law Partner Sponsorship
If you have been living together with your partner for at least 12 months in a marriage-type relationship, you may be able to sponsor the foreign partner to live with you in Canada as a permanent resident. Such sponsorship applications can be overwhelming to prepare for on your own since the immigration authorities need substantial evidence to prove that the two of you have been living together as a married couple would in the last year.
Looking to sponsor your parents to immigrate to Canada? We can help. We’ve worked with citizens and permanent residents of Canada to sponsor their aging parents to become permanent residents. We advise on the minimum requirements needed to qualify for this kind of sponsorship and help prepare the application for a successful outcome.
As a permanent resident or citizen of Canada, you may sponsor your dependent foreign child to immigrate to Canada. Child sponsorship applications are complex and parents need to ensure all minimum requirements are met before submitting the application. We can help navigate the process of sponsoring your child to join you in Canada.
Your parents or grandparents can visit you in Canada for up to 2 years without having to renew their status if they qualify for a super visa. To qualify, they must be found admissible to Canada and have a written commitment from their child or grandchild who is a permanent resident or citizen of Canada and meets certain income requirements. They will also be required to undergo some medical evaluations and buy Canadian medical insurance coverage for at least one year.
