The Canadian government understands the importance of families, and through the immigration system, created a sponsorship program to foster family reunification. The Canadian Family Class Sponsorship program allows citizens and permanent residents 18 years and older to become sponsors. People meeting these criteria can bring from abroad or sponsor those family members already in Canada with temporary residence status.

  • Spouse/Common-law/Conjugal Partner
  • Parents and Grandparents
  • Dependent Children
  • Dependent Relatives – where one does not have anyone else mentioned above to sponsor (brothers, sisters, nephew, niece, or grandchild under 18 years who is unmarried and whose parents are deceased).

Ideally, a sponsor must live in Canada to sponsor a foreign national. However, Canadian citizens residing overseas can sponsor a foreign nation, provided the sponsor can demonstrate a reasonable plan to return to live in Canada once the person being sponsored arrives in Canada. By signing a sponsorship agreement with a relative, the sponsor is responsible for supporting their relatives financially in Canada until the period stipulated by law expires. For example, the financial support obligation for a spouse, common-law or conjugal partner is three years and ten years for a dependent child or until the child turns 25, whichever comes first, counting from the date they become a permanent resident. Therefore, sponsorship is a massive commitment to one’s family members.
