Family & Spouse Sponsorship
Sponsor your family
REUNITE WITH YOUR SPOUSE
OR FAMILY IN CANADA
If you have family members living abroad, they can join you in Canada through the Family Sponsorship program and earn
permanent residency. Canada prioritizes families seeking to reunite with family members in Canada, and we can assist you in
bringing them here! The Canadian spousal sponsorship is designed specifically for applicants and permanent residents
who can sponsor their spouse, parents, and other family members as permanent residents of Canada.
The most popular category of immigration visas to Canada is spouse and family sponsorship.

PERMANENT RESIDENCY SPONSORSHIP
The processing time for 80% of spouse sponsorship applications, both within and outside of Canada, was recently reduced from 26 to 12 months. The age limit for dependent children has been raised from “under 19” to “under 22” for immigration purposes. This modification will be effective for all new applications received on or after October 24, 2017.
SISTER OR BROTHER
There is currently no direct sponsorship programme for Canadian citizens or permanent residents’ brothers and sisters. Their siblings, on the other hand, can apply for permanent residency as economic class immigrants and receive fifteen extra points under Express Entry.
Under certain conditions, you may be able to sponsor your relative under the “last remaining relative” exception program.
There is no direct sponsorship programme for friends of Canadian citizens or permanent residents at the moment. Friends of permanent residents or Canadian citizens, on the other hand, may apply for a visitor visa if they are from a non-visa-exempt country.
