FAMILY SPONSORSHIP

This is a family class visa application. One of the most important immigration objectives of Canada is geared towards reunification of families. This is achieved through the Canada Family Sponsorship program.

The family sponsorship program is meant for Canadian citizens or permanent residents who wish their spouse, common-law partner or dependent child to settle with them in Canada. A Canadian citizen reserves the right to sponsor a family member while outside the country while a permanent resident can only sponsor a family member only while in Canada.

In the family class category, qualified family members include a sponsor’s spouse, common-law partner or conjugal partner; a dependent child of the sponsor; the sponsor’s mother or father; a person the sponsor intends to adopt; and other relatives of the sponsor as defined by regulation.

Sponsoring a relative in this way is usually the quickest route to achieving permanent residency in Canada.
