Canadian permanent residents and citizens can sponsor their eligible family members to immigrate to Canada as permanent residents. Eligible family members include a foreign child, parent or grandparents, common-law partner, spouse, and conjugal partner. Family class sponsorship cases are complex and there are minimum requirements that must be met by both the sponsor and sponsored person for the application to be approved.
Spousal Sponsorship Cases
In an effort to reunite couples, Canada offers its citizens and permanent residents a chance to sponsor their foreign spouse to immigrate to Canada. The couple must have a valid marriage license. The marriage must be recognized in Canada and in the country in which it took place.
Common-Law Partner Sponsorship
In a common law partnership, the couple must have stayed together for a period not less than 12 months consecutively in a marriage-like relationship. Such applications require both parties to provide supporting documents that prove any periods of separation were due to valid reasons such as work or family obligations. If the couple has been away from each other for extended periods, the application may not be approved.
A Canadian citizen or permanent resident that is over the age of 18 can sponsor their parent to immigrate to Canada. The sponsor must fulfill the income requirements since he/she will be required to fulfill the financial needs of the sponsored parent for a specific period from the time they enter Canada.
As a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you may sponsor your dependent child to immigrate to Canada. As a sponsor, you must prove that you are able to support the child financially until they reach the legal age.
Super visas are often given to grandparents or parents of citizens and permanent residents of Canada to enable them to visit their family in Canada for longer periods. With the super visa, the parent can stay for up to 2 years without having to renew their status. Grandparents can also apply for the multiple entry visa which is valid for up to 10 years.
