Who is eligible to sponsor their spouse, partner or child

You can sponsor your spouse, partner or dependent child if:

  • Minimum age 18 years old
  • If you are a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident of Canada, or an individual registered in
    Canada as an Indian under the Canadian Indian Act
  • If you’re a Canadian citizen living outside Canada, you would like to show that you simply
    plant olive in Canada when the persons you want to sponsor become permanent residents.
  • You can’t sponsor someone if you’re a permanent resident living outside Canada.
  • You’re ready to prove that you’re not receiving supplementary benefit for reasons aside from a disability you can provide for the essential needs of any persons you would like to sponsor

 

If you live outside Quebec

To become a sponsor, you have to promise to financially lookout of the persons you’re sponsoring for a period of your time. We call this promise an undertaking. The undertaking commits you to:

  • provide financial support for your sponsored persons, starting when they become permanent residents
  • repaying any local social assistance your sponsored family members get during that time
Also, you and your sponsored relations got to obey with certain responsibilities during the undertaking period. We call this the sponsorship agreement. The sponsorship agreement means that:
  • you’ll provide for the basic needs of your sponsored family members
  • the person you sponsor will make every effort to support themselves and their family members
  • When you submit, you’ll have to complete and sign a form that includes the undertaking and the sponsorship agreement.

When you submit, you’ll have to fill and sign a form that includes the undertaking and the sponsorship agreement.

Income requirement

In most cases, there isn’t an income condition to sponsor your spouse or partner or dependent child. You only need to show that you have a sufficient amount to meet the income requirements if:

  • you’re sponsoring a dependent child that has 1 or more dependent children of their own, or
  • you’re sponsoring a spouse or partner that has a dependent child, and their dependent child has 1 or more children of their own.

The Financial Evaluation form instructions explain how much money you’ll need and how to fill out the form. You’ll get the form when you download your request package.

If you live in Quebec

You must meet Quebec’s immigration sponsorship requirements after we support you as a sponsor. You must sign an undertaking with the area of Quebec. The Quebec ministry in charge of immigration will assess your income.

Who can’t sponsor their spouse, partner or child

    • You must have permanent resident status at the time you submit your sponsorship application.

You may not be eligible to sponsor your spouse, partner if you:
  • were sponsored by a spouse or partner and you became a permanent resident less than 5 years ago
  • are still economically answerable for a earlier spouse or partner that you sponsored. This means you’re still bound by the 3 year undertaking to look out of this person.
