Spousal Sponsorship Canada

Updated: Dec 20, 2023

Spousal/family sponsorship in Canada is a program that enables Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their spouse, common-law partner, conjugal partner, or dependent children to come to Canada. This program allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents to bring their family members to Canada by sponsoring them for permanent residence. The sponsor must provide financial and emotional support to the sponsored individual in order for them to be eligible for permanent residence.
