Canada is one of the advanced countries, which gives utmost priority to family reunification to benefit millions of immigrants living in the country. The lenient and immigrant-friendly rules and procedures of the Family sponsorship program of Canada describe the same.
The Canadian government understands that the family is always there to support when someone work or travel abroad to plan a better career and a life for the family, so there is no reason one should live far from them. The Canadian government provides you with an organized pathway and dedicated visa categories to sponsor your spouse, common-law partner, dependents, or other eligible relatives to come and live with you in Canada.
Note: If you have sponsored any person in the past who has asked the government for financial support after coming to Canada, you may not be able to sponsor any other person
You can sponsor:
Note: You can sponsor one relative regardless of age or relationship, only if you do not have a living spouse or common-law partner, conjugal partner, a son or daughter, parent, grandparent, sibling, uncle, aunt, nephew or niece who could be sponsored as a member of the family class. In addition, you do not have any relative who is a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident or registered as an Indian under the Indian Act.
As of November 5, 2011, no new applications to sponsor parents or grandparents will be accepted for processing for up to 24 months.
