A Canadian citizen or permanent resident may sponsor his/her spouse, common-law partner, dependent child, parent, and grandparent to apply for permanent residence. To qualify for sponsorship, the Canadian citizen or permanent resident must meet certain income requirements. There are also special requirements that the sponsored person must meet.
Spousal Sponsorship Cases
If you’ve been married to a foreign spouse, you may sponsor him/her to immigrate to Canada. One main requirement when submitting a spousal sponsorship application is that you need a valid marriage certificate that is recognized in Canada and the country in which it took place.
Common-Law Partner Sponsorship
If you are living with your spouse in a marriage-like relationship, you may be able to sponsor him/her for permanent residence in Canada. First, you must prove that you’ve been together for at least 12 consecutive months. Any short periods of separation must be due to valid reasons such as family or work obligations.
You may sponsor your parent to come to Canada as a permanent resident if you’ve met certain income requirements. You must also prove that you can support the sponsored parent and your dependents financially. The sponsor must sign an undertaking that commits him/her to provide financial support to the parent for up to 20 years.
Permanent residents and citizens of Canada can sponsor their foreign child to immigrate to Canada as a permanent resident. In order to qualify, the sponsor must show that they are financially capable of supporting the sponsored child for a specific period of time. We offer legal advice to help you navigate the process of applying for child sponsorship in Canada.
A super visa allows a parent or grandparent who is admissible to Canada to visit their family for up to two years without having to renew their status. To qualify, the applicant must have a written commitment from the sponsor, undergo a medical examination and prove that they have bought Canada medical insurance for at least one year. Super visas are only issued if the sponsor meets the required economic threshold.
Permanent Resident Cards
Immigration Appeals Lawyer Scarborough
Matthew Jeffery is pleased to be offering his services as an immigration lawyer to Scarborough, Ontario. With over 625,000 residents, this former municipality now makes up roughly one fifth of the population of the city of present day Toronto, which was created from the amalgamation with Toronto, Scarborough and four other municipalities in 1998.
Scarborough, Ontario is named after Scarborough, England. It got its name from Elizabeth Simcoe, the wife of the Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, John Graves Simcoe, who observed the beautiful white cliffs known as the “Scarborough bluffs” and thought they resembled the cliffs near her home in England.
Scarborough is a multicultural hotbed in what is known as one of the most diverse cities in the world. It’s affordable housing prices and accepting culture make it one of the most popular destinations for new immigrants to Canada, with nearly 60% of its residents being foreign born and nearly 70% belonging to a visible minority.
However, immigration isn’t as simple as packing up your things and moving to another country. There is a complex series of laws and regulations you must follow.
