If you are a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident, or a registered Indian, 

you may sponsor your foreign family member, 

and the sponsored family member becomes a permanent resident if the application is successful.

Who may be sponsored?

The family member that can be sponsored include:

1. Spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner

2. Dependent child (less than 22 years old) including stepchild

3. Adopted child (less than 18 years old)

4. Parent or grandparent, including their dependent child

5.Brother, sister, nephew, niece, grandchild who is orphaned

6. Other relatives.

How does it work?

Generally speaking, one sponsorship application consists of two parts. The first part is for the sponsor's eligibility. The second part is for the sponsored family member to apply for permanent residency.

Note that among the sponsorship applications, the process for parent/grandparent sponsorship may be longer due to the current drawing system. As an interim alternative, you may consider a super visa for your parent or grandparent.

Who is eligible?

The requirements for the sponsor and the sponsored family member are also different. For a sponsor, some common requirements may include:

1. Genuineness of relationship. This is particularly important for spouse/common-law sponsorship.

2. Enough income that can support a family. Some exemptions may apply.

Furthermore, if the sponsor lives outside Canada, they must resume residence in Canada either when the sponsored spouse/common-law partner becomes a permanent resident or, for the rest of the sponsorship, when submitting the application.

The requirements for the sponsored family member remain on eligibility and admissibility.
