How To Sponsor A Family Member To Canada

Well it might interest you that making plans for a family member to migrate to Canada is not going to be very easy and here is what I mean.

Sponsoring a family member to Canada involves a process that is typically handled by the Canadian government. The process varies depending on the specific family member you want to sponsor. As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, here is a general overview of the process for sponsoring a spouse, partner, or dependent child:

1. Eligibility

– To be a sponsor, you must be a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident, or a person registered in Canada as an Indian under the Canadian Indian Act.
– You must be at least 18 years old.
– You must prove that you are not receiving social assistance for reasons other than a disability.

2. Choose the Appropriate Family Member

– You can sponsor a spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, dependent child, parent, or grandparent.
