The Spousal Sponsorship program is designed to reunite Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents of Canada with their spouse, common-law partner or conjugal partner. In this class, the immigrating life partners may apply for an Open Work Permit and our team can help with that process as well. They can also apply for Permanent Residency in Canada as long as they are at least 16 years of age and not too closely related to the sponsor.

  • prove that you are at least 18 years of age
  • prove that you are legally married to your spouse, or
  • prove that you have been living together as a couple, in a conjugal relationship for a continuous, uninterrupted 12-month period with your common-law partner, or
  • be unable to qualify for common-law status due to barriers of time and space criteria, and exceptional circumstances, yet still be partners in a relationship of the opposite sex or same sex with your conjugal partner
  • currently be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada
  • currently, be residing in Canada
  • be able to prove that you can support your spouse, common-law partner or conjugal partner by providing the basic needs of life including food, clothing, dental care, eye care and other health needs not covered by public health services
  • not have been sponsored yourself within the last 5 years at the time of submitting the application to sponsor another
  • be prepared to submit police certificates and the results from medical examinations

You must not be in prison, bankrupt, receiving social assistance for reasons other than disability, be under a removal order or charged with a serious offence.

Family sponsorship is a great way for family members to attain permanent resident status and we are happy to do what we can to help.
