You can sponsor your relatives if you are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident and are at least 18 years old, and have sufficient income to support your relatives in Canada. Your spouse can co-sign your sponsorship application if your single income is not enough to meet the financial requirements.
The relatives you can sponsor are:
- Spouse and dependants 19 years old or younger who are not married or in a common-law relationship, or dependants with disabilities.
- Parents and grandparents.- There is a cap of 10,000 application to be processed in 2015. The SUPER VISA is an alternative, which allows your parents and grandparents to visit you for 2 years at a time. The visa is valid for 10 years.
- Adopted children
- Orphans brothers, sisters, nephews, nieces and grandchildren under 18 years old
Let us help you bring your loved-ones to Canada
