If you are a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, you can sponsor your:
common-law or conjugal partner, or
dependent children, to immigrate to Canada.
If you sponsor a family member to immigrate to Canada, you must provide proof that you can:
meet basic needsï¿½such as food, clothing and shelterï¿½for yourself and your family,
support your relative financially and
make sure your spouse or relative does not need to ask for financial help from the government.
Apply to sponsor your spouse, partner or children
There are two stages in the process to sponsor your spouse, partner or dependent children to become permanent residents.
First: As a citizen or permanent resident of Canada, you must apply to sponsor your family member.
The Case Processing Centre (CPC) in Canada will process your application to sponsor.
The CPC will write you to tell you if Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has approved your application.
Second: Your spouse, partner, or dependent children must apply for permanent residence.
You must send both your sponsorship application and the permanent residence application for your family members at the same time.
The Application Assessment Process
The Case Processing Centre in Mississauga, Ontario (CPC-M) will review your sponsorship application.
Your application will be returned to you if:
it is incomplete,
the sponsorship and processing fees are missing, or
If we begin to process your application, we will:
send you an acknowledgment of receipt letter with an application number,
assess your eligibility as a sponsor, and
assess if the person you are sponsoring meets the permanent residence requirements.
If you are approved as a sponsor
We will assess if the person you want to sponsor meets the permanent residence requirements. If their permanent residence application is refused, we will let you know why the application was refused and how to appeal the decision.
If you are refused as a sponsor
Your relative can still apply for permanent residence. Their application may not be approved.
