Spouse Sponsorship

Help Your Spouse Become a Permanent Resident!

The approval of a spouse, common-law or conjugal partner sponsorship will depend on whether you can verify the genuineness of the relationship. 

There are other factors that affect the result, 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.

You can contact us for a free assessment to find out which of the following situations best applies to your case.

Outside Spouse or Common-Law Partner Sponsorship

If your spouse or common-law partner is living outside Canada, you can apply through this stream. With this option, the application will be processed by an overseas visa office, either located in the sponsoree’s country of residence or at the country responsible for all the applications submitted in the region.

Spouse or Common-Law Partner Sponsorship When a Canadian Citizen Is Living Abroad

If you are living abroad with your spouse or common-law partner, you can still submit an application but you will have to provide additional documentation to show that both will relocate to Canada once the permanent residence is approved.

In Canada Class Spouse or Common-Law Partner Sponsorship

If your spouse or common-law partner is already in Canada (either with valid immigration status or if they have overstayed Canada), this could be your best option.

If your sponsoree is already in Canada under a valid temporary status, they can benefit from an Open Work Permit that will allow them to work until permanent residence is approved legally.

Same-Sex Relationship Sponsorship

Same-sex partners, already married or not, can apply through the sponsorship program to reunite in Canada. We have great expertise with this kind of application and can guide you through this sensitive process.

Sponsoring From Quebec

If you reside in the province of Quebec, additional requirements apply. You will have to submit a separate undertaking application to the province. We can help you file a spouse sponsorship application since we have part of our staff of Immigration Consultants certified by this province.

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.
