Family Sponsorships

Family Sponsorships

Help Your Family Obtain Their Permanent Residence!

Permanent residents and Canadian citizens can sponsor family members. Sponsorships allow spouses, parents, grandparents, and children to reunite in Canada as permanent residents.

We have been accompanying families for years in their efforts to bring their loved ones to Canada. We have learned that empathy with the client and technical accuracy are the best combination in preparing a successful application.

Usually, families are overwhelmed by how many forms and documents they have to provide and may have difficulty understanding Immigration’s technicalities.

We have polished the process and accompanied our clients through the immigration obstacles and unknowns. 

As a permanent resident or Canadian citizen, you can apply to family sponsorships to reunite with the following members:

The person you are legally married to.

A recognized marriage certificate is required to apply as spouses.

There are several factors to consider for this kind of application, such as:

 The sponsoree’s place of residence.

 Your relationship history with the person you wish to sponsor.

 The sponsoree’s immigration status in Canada.

 Other factors.

Please contact us to assess your situation.

A common-law partner is a person with whom you have cohabited a minimum of 12 months consecutively in a marriage-like relationship.

The approval of a Common-law partner sponsorship application will depend on the couple demonstrating the relationship’s genuineness.

Please contact us to assess your situation.

A conjugal partner is a person with whom you have had a binding relationship for at least one year but have not been able to live together or marry for reasons beyond your control.

These reasons can be related but not limited to immigration barriers, religious reasons, or sexual orientation. It must be proven that you have not gotten married or cohabited for the reasons mentioned above. However, you must prove a mutually interdependent relationship.

Please contact us to assess your situation.

You can sponsor your child under the age of 22 (or over if they are financially dependent due to a physical or mental condition).

You can sponsor your dependent child, both biological or adopted, to come to Canada if you are a Canadian citizen or a Permanent Resident. However, if you, the parent sponsoring, were already a Canadian citizen when your child was born, you will most probably just have to apply for a proof of citizenship certificate.

Please contact us to assess your situation.

You can sponsor your biological or adoptive parents/grandparents. This program allows Canadian citizens or permanent residents to sponsor their parents to live in Canada permanently.

This program only opens once a year and receives a limited amount of applications.

If you cannot apply for this sponsorship program for your parents/grandparents, but still want to bring them to Canada for a longer time, you can bring them for a temporary basis to stay up to 2 years with the Super Visa program.

Please contact us to assess your situation.

To apply for sponsorships, you must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, 18 years or older, live in Canada without receiving social assistance and be able to show that you can provide the basic needs to your family member. If you are a Canadian citizen living outside Canada already with your family, you can still submit an application for sponsorships. 

After your sponsoree is in Canada and becomes a permanent resident, you will be financially responsible for them for several years. This commitment’s length will vary according to the familiar tie.

It will depend on the program, the country of residence and the processing times in effect by the Canadian immigration offices when the application is submitted. You can find the approximate current processing times here.

Please keep in mind that these processing times are estimates. Sometimes offices process cases, prioritizing applications depending on several factors. Also, at times applications are forwarded to other processing centers that may have a lower work backlog, thus, reducing processing times considerably. If your application was not professionally prepared or contains errors or omissions, the processing times will be increased for several months or even years.
