SPONSOR SPOUSE, CHILD & RELATIVES
One of the objectives of the Government of Canada is to reunite families. Certain family members may qualify to become permanent residents under the family class category. Like other immigration categories, family class sponsorship has certain eligibility requirements. You may be eligible to sponsor a child, spouse or a common-law partner living outside or inside Canada, if you are 18 years of age or older and you are a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or person registered in Canada as an Indian under the Canadian Indian Act
Sponsor Spouse / Common-law partner
The spousal/common-law sponsorship Canada immigration program is a part of the Family Class category, through which Canada welcomes a substantial number of new permanent residents annually. The applicants should be aware that even though there is no point-based award system, however, both the sponsor and sponsored person must be approved by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) for the sponsored person to receive Canadian permanent residence.
Canada’s family class immigration allows the sponsorship of children. You can sponsor dependent children or adopted children as long as you include supporting documents in the application.
You may be able to sponsor certain relatives to immigrate to Canada under the Family Class if you meet the requirements. In certain circumstances, you may qualify to sponsor your relative.
