How do I sponsor my partner for Canadian immigration?
You can become a sponsor if you are:
- At least 18 years old
- A Canadian citizen, a person registered in Canada as an Indian under the Canadian Indian Act or a permanent resident
- Living in Canada:
- If you are a Canadian Citizen living outside Canada, you must show that you plan to live in Canada when your sponsored relative becomes a permanent resident
- You can’t sponsor someone if you are a permanent resident living outside of Canada
- Able to prove you are not receiving social assistance for reasons other than a disability.
