Family sponsorship programs allow Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their family members, who include spouse, common law partner, dependent child, and parents and grandparents to immigrate to Canada as permanent residents. There are unique requirements that both the sponsor and sponsored person must meet in order to qualify for this program. Applicants will need to pass medical, criminal and background screening before the sponsorship application is approved.
Spousal Sponsorship Cases
A Canadian citizen or permanent resident may sponsor a legally married spouse to enter Canada. For the spousal sponsorship application to be successful, the applicant must provide a document that shows the marriage is legally recognized in Canada and the country in which it took place.
Common-Law Partner Sponsorship
You may be able to sponsor a partner who you’ve been living with in a marriage-like relationship for at least one year. You will be required to prove that you’ve been together for at least 12 months and that you are living in a marriage type commitment. The paperwork may include joint bank account details, proof that you share the same address and receipts that show joint ownership of household items.
Permanent residents and citizens of Canada can submit a child sponsorship application to sponsor their dependent child for permanent residence. There are some basic requirements to sponsor a child to immigrate to Canada. The sponsor must sign a 10-year undertaking to be financially responsible for the child once he or she arrives in Canada.
A citizen or permanent resident of Canada who is 18 years old and above can sponsor a parent to gain permanent residency in Canada. To qualify for this program, the sponsor must be able to financially support the parent from the time they enter Canada. This includes providing for their basic needs like shelter and food.
Parents and grandparents of Canadian permanent residents and citizens may qualify for a super visa which allows them to make extended visits to Canada without having to renew their status each time. To qualify or a super visa, the applicant’s sponsor must meet the economic threshold required and sign an undertaking that they will provide the financial support needed once the sponsored person enters Canada.

With a long history of sporting and supporting the arts, Oakville is home to the Canadian Soccer League with the largest soccer club in Canada calling it home. It is also home to an annual Jazz festival which takes place each summer and several other events throughout the years. The most popular -and longest running- festival is the Waterfront Festival which began in 1982 and has returned almost every year since its inception, bringing arts and crafts, free concerts, nightly fireworks, food and drinks, and small amusement park rides to the people of Oakville.
An increasingly popular destination for young families entering the country, Oakville is small enough to feel safe and friendly and close enough to Toronto to offer everything a young family could want within a short drive of home.
