How to apply for family visa in Canada?

Canada has welcomed immigrants since the end of the Second World War with the intent to strengthen its economy through strong labor recruitment, reunite families separated by war and provide a safe refuge for people all across the world. Canada is also pursuing higher levels of mass immigration as needed to recuperate from the aftermath of COVID. As such, we welcome more than 400,000 new immigrants each year of which 100,000 fall under the family class.

Family sponsorship relies on two key aspects:

1) it allows family members to immigrate to Canada and get permanent resident status (PR), and
2) person already in Canada is making a commitment to provide basic needs and financial support for the person coming to Canada.

Can I be a sponsor?

To sponsor a family member, you are required to meet several requirements such as being:
• Permanent resident of Canada or Canadian citizen
• 18 years of age or older
• Able to support the sponsored person for several years

Who can I sponsor?

  • Common-law partners and spouses
  • Dependent children
  • Grandparents and parents

How to Apply for Family Sponsorship

Step 1: It’s important to make sure you qualify before applying as a sponsor.

Step 2: In order to sponsor someone, you must be sure that they meet the eligibility criteria.

Step 3: You will need to apply at the federal level to the Ministry of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) and, if you’re a resident of Quebec, at the provincial level to the Ministry of Immigration, Integration (MIFI), and Francization. You got to submit your sponsorship application as well as the permanent residence (PR) status applications of your relatives or even family members together. After you’ve been deemed eligible to sponsor, your PR application is going to be reviewed.

Step 4: To sponsor a family member, you will need to have the Family Sponsorship Application Fee paid.

Step 5: Send your application to the right address and have the correct guidance throughout the way. Fill out the form on this page to start or book your consultation with us to help us guide you through this journey.
