Canadians and Permanent Residents are able to permanently settle with their loved ones in Canada through Family sponsorship. If you are married, have been living together or in rare circumstances have been banned from being together but in a loving relationship, you may qualify. There are specific requirements that come into play with any sponsorship application and it’s important to address the essentials before starting the process.

In order to be eligible as a sponsor, you must;

  • be at least 18 years of age, and
  • Canadian citizen or permanent resident, and
  • financially support your family members

It is important you prove a genuine relationship and have proper documentation when presenting to Immigration Canada. 

A Canadian citizen is eligible to live outside of Canada while a sponsorship application is in process for all outland applications.

5 Year Sponsorship Bar

If you are a permanent resident in Canada wanting to sponsor someone and you became a permanent resident from a previous spouse or common-law or conjugal sponsorship application - you may not be eligible to sponsor unless you as the sponsor has been a permanent resident, Canadian citizen, or combination of the two for at least 5 years.
