CANADA FAMILY IMMIGRATION VISA

One of the primary purposes of Canada's Immigration law is to facilitate the reunion of Canadian citizens and permanent residents with family members abroad.

MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY CLASS

Under this program Canadian citizens or permanent residents in Canada, can sponsor an individual abroad belonging to the "family class". Under the "family class", only close relatives can be sponsored, such as:
1. Spouses,
2. Fiance
3. Dependent child,
4. Adopted dependent child,
5. Parents,
6. Grandparents, and
7. Close family relatives who are orphaned, less than 22 years of age, and unmarried.

SPONSORS

To qualify as a "sponsor" , you must be:
1. A Canadian citizen or permanent resident;
2. 19 years of age or older;
3. Reside in Canada (unless sponsoring a spouse or child under 19);
4. Sign an undertaking to provide for the relative's essential needs, for usually 10 years.
5. Provide information to the Canadian government on your financial resources for 12 months prior to the date the sponsorship application is submitted;
6. Meet the Low Income Cut-Off figures (unless sponsoring a spouse or child under 19); and
7. Signs an agreement with the sponsored relatives agreeing to meet the terms of the undertaking.

PERSONS WHO ARE INELIGIBLE TO SPONSOR

A sponsor cannot be in default of a previous undertaking or an undertaking he or she previously co-signed, cannot be in jail or prison, be an undercharged bankrupt, or be currently under a removal order. A sponsor is in default if the previously sponsored relative has received any welfare or social assistance, and while the undertaking is in force adequate arrangements have not been made for repayment with either the municipal, provincial or federal government.
